Light snow is falling outside and the forecast is calling for more. The Rendezvous Ski Trails are covered and the skiing is looking good. The trails have already been groomed a couple times and the incoming weather forecast is predicting several more inches to fall Wednesday and into Thursday.
With the 2013 Yellowstone Ski Festival in sight, the final details are wrapping up. It is not too late to register for a clinic. Consider a three or five day Nordic clinic to start the ski season off right. Or a one or two day to fit your holiday schedule. Take in an early season race. There are five different races at this year’s ski festival, including the inaugural NNF/WYSEF Masters Race! Online registration is available now. Sign up by Thursday, November 21 to avoid late fees. Check out the schedule of events. Enjoy an array of wax clinics, movies, classes, and presentations. The schedule is updated constantly, so check back often. The Indoor Expo is packed with all things Nordic and free of charge. Visit with those in the know from Rossignol, Salomon, Fischer, Toko, Atomic, Fast Wax, Madshus, Swix, Solda, the National Nordic Foundation, Boulder Nordic Sport, SkiFast Ergometer, Bliz, BeFast Headgear, Mt. Borah, Bjorn Daehlie, Noname Apparel, Podiumwear, Woodski, Cirrus Aircraft, Start Wax, and the West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation. Visit these vendors’ booths at night to pick up some demo gear for the next day. Don’t forget to visit the vendors who will be on-snow at the Rendezvous Ski Trailhead area. Your ski pass allows you full access to demo gear on the trails. Be sure to schedule some time so you can sample the latest and greatest from all the participating vendors!
