The 20km race course had some of the best grooming ever: Firm deep tracks, firm skate lane with a softer cover, fast but controllable downhills. The course couldn't have been any better.

Despite our recent snowfall, the 50K trail was still not good enough in spots to run the full 50. However, the 20K and 10K trails are in excellent shape, so those two races are on as scheduled. All racers registered for the 50K will now be in the 20K.
