Forty-five kids arrived at Huron Meadows at 8:00am, got their skis, and headed out to the start line to race in the first ever Frosty Freestyle Kids Race. Frosty the Snowman was their to cheer them on!
It WAS Krazy! Who holds a classic cross country ski race without set tracks? We do! Dan Yankus (Team NordicSkiRacer) added a second victory this weekend, and Tracy Hardin (Straits Striders) was the women's champion.
It was a hard race over a relatively flat course, with no place to rest and no place to hide. Conditions ranged from a foot of hard packed snow to icy-snow barely covering the grass. But the competition was spectacular.
Neither Tuesday's springlike sunshine, nor temperatures above the norm all month in metro Detroit, nor gloom of rain predicted tonight will keep Adam Haberkorn from his appointed rounds -- spreading artificial snow for Saturday's ski races in Brighton.
