UPDATE Jan 6: We are cancelling all together MNR this year. It will not be happening at Forbush due to decreased number/interest and snow conditions, etc.
UPDATE Jan 5: Due to the lack of snow, warm temperatures, and Mother Nature’s agenda, the 7th annual Midwest Nordic Rendezvous (MNR) of 2023 will be moved to Forbush Corner Nordic Center. The Vasa Ski Club is committed to providing cross country ski instruction to our members and community despite current conditions. Unfortunately, Lindsey Dehlin will not be able to provide the ski instruction but we hope to host her next season in 2024. Please understand the Vasa Ski club worked closely with Hickory Hills as they have increased their snowmaking but the warm temperatures are not favorable.
Forbush Corner Nordic Center has graciously offered to host this event. They are located in Fredric, Mi, approximately 1 hour drive from Traverse City. It has excellent snowmaking that provides gentle terrain for 2km.
Due to the terrain and limited space:

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding the changes that had to be made due to the weather.
