Washington Nordic Cup Series
We are proud to be a part of the Washington Nordic Cup, a series of races for young competitors to develop their skiing and racing skills independent of the Junior National qualifying circuit. Athletes from around the region will compete this weekend for points, all building toward the season-ending finale races in March. Participants in the Washington Nordic Cup should follow the below distance guidelines to be scored (e.g. U6 stands for under 6 years old):
- U6, U8 and U10: 1.5 km
- U12 and U14: 2.5 km
- U16, U18 and U20: 5 km
Any skiers wishing to ski a different distance for their age will receive the minimum points score for that event in the Washington Cup.
