“The Airport Nordic Grooming Team was on the trails by 5 a.m., with the first officials arriving before 7 a.m. to find that the snow was in excellent condition setting up a great of racing,” explained Cross Country Skiing Convener Robert Mackenzie. “Today’s races were 750 meter sprints using classic technique. The speed and intensity of the racing built up all afternoon culminating in with the awarding of gold, silver and bronze medals for males and females.”
