Nordic Program

Opportunities in Nordic Skiing

Nordic skiing can be a serious aerobic workout or a nice relaxing way to get out on secluded trails and enjoy nature. Whatever the reason, we have plenty of opportunities to brush up on your Nordic skills or learn a new sport. We can always use more patrollers at the big cross country ski races, and Alpine patrollers are more than welcome to participate in providing medical coverage for these races.

Nordic Instruction

We will be holding a Western Region Nordic Workshops at Elm Creek Park Preserve (Maple Grove, MN) on January 13, 2018, and also at Giants Ridge (Biwabik, MN) on February 3rd, 2018.

Become part of the famous Birkie Patrol

The Berkie patrol is an Event Patrol that provides medical coverage for the American Berkebeiner in Hayward WI, on February 24, 2018. You can have non-skiing positions or you can ski half of the race course. We also will need patrollers for the Kortelopet on Friday the 23th. That race will be run on the Birkie course from OO to Hayward. It is a great weekend of patrolling, and we always welcome Alpine patrollers
