The time has come to make a decision and we have decided that the QUAD Ski WILL NOT take place on Sunday. I know that many of you will be disappointed, but my goal is to maintain the integrity of the QUAD Ski and the current conditions will not allow us to do that. The forecast may be calling for more snow, but it’s not enough to allow a race to take place outside of the field and the temperatures are not going to stay cold enough to freeze the wet patches and allow a base to be groomed. We would be putting all racers at risk of injuries by hosting a race on Sunday.
Wilderness Lodge has been wonderful in doing everything they can to make this race happen but Mother Nature has different plans for 2017. A third makeup date will NOT be scheduled. The good news is we can all look forward to the Awards Banquet on Sunday, March 26 and the Highmark QUAD Swim on Sunday, April 23. Events that are both held indoor where climate is controlled! Get out your pen and mark your calendar!
