Because of the various obligations involved with the race, I have learned that a decision regarding cancellation of the race would have to be made by Noon on Thursday. Since the weather would continue to be warm for at least another 30 hours post the Thursday decision, further trail deterioration would certainly occur . Therefore we are cancelling Saturday's Black Mountain Nordic Classic ski race. All folks who preregistered will receive complimentary registration to next year's event. Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming support for the event.
