It is a winter wonderland in West Yellowstone, Mont., and the official start of the Yellowstone Ski Festival is just days away. The Rendezvous Ski Trails are groomed and in “race ski” shape, and many teams and individuals already have arrived to get on snow. There is a diverse and exciting line-up of on-snow action and evening activities planned for Thanksgiving week. If you are not headed this way already, make plans now to spend your holiday on snow in West Yellowstone.
It’s not too late for a clinic! Space is available in most of the Nordic Clinics. Call Drew Barney at 406-646-9379 to hold your spot in the five, three, two, and one day classes. SuperTour race registration is available online through Noon MST on Monday, Nov. 21. Biathlon registration runs through 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22, and the junior race registration is open until 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25. On snow demos, wax clinics, a keynote lecture by legendary mountaineer Conrad Anker, a fashion show, and activities for kids round out the offerings.
The snow is here, so make plans now to attend the 2011 Yellowstone Ski Festival and enjoy your First Tracks in West Yellowstone this Thanksgiving. For more information, visit www.yellowstoneskifestival.com, follow westyellxcski on Twitter or Yellowstone Ski Festival on Facebook.
