Come to Pincushion on February 16th for the 30th Annual Sawtooth International Cross-Country ski races.
The Sawtooth Races will provide opportunities for both classical and freestyle skiers and skiers of all ages and ability levels. We will have a 10K classical technique event, followed by a 20K freestyle event. Both will be run on a 10K loop utilizing intermediate level Pincushion Mountain trails.
There will be a self-seeded mass start at 10:00 am for all 10K classical racers and another mass start at 11:00 am for the 20K freestyle racers. Separate awards will be given for the 10K classical and for the 20K freestyle events. Junior skiers are encouraged to enter the 10K event. For those up to the challenge, start times will allow skiers to enter both the classical and freestyle events. This year there will be awards given to the top male and female in the combined event.

Conditions were fantastic for the 29th annual Sawtooth International Ski Races. Thanks to all of the participants and volunteers that made it happen. Check out results at Steve’s Timing:
Anyone else hankering for a good, hard, long effort on classic skis after all the race cancelations and lack of snow?
On Saturday, January 21st we will be kicking it old school at the Pincushion Trails. Set on what I like to think of as our Holmenkollen course we will be doing three 16.6k loops for 50k, although 33.2k and 16.6k options are also open. Each loop will start and finish through the stadium so you will be welcome to provide your own feeds on the feed table, rewax or even change out your skis if you so desire. Skiers will set off at two minute intervals on the start list with two starting times available-9:30 & 10:30 a.m. (that is, there will be two start lists, 9:30 & 10:30, with skiers assigned start times at two minute intervals on each list, pick the start list that fits into your schedule). The timing clock will be set out but you are responsible for recording your own finish time.
The day promises to be a challenging “race of truth”.
While this is a club training day, non-club members are more than welcome with a suggested donation of $5 in the trail box. Rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org for a start time on your preferred start list or show up at 9:30 or 10:30 and slide into an open slot.
See you at Pincushion.
The 2nd Berg Occasional was a huge success! Participation went up dramatically compared to the first and fun was had by all. The holiday event was a “mini-tour” that started with a 2.5 km prologue and was followed by a reverse pursuit 7.5 km classic race.
The North Superior Ski and Run Club officials have decided to postpone the Sawtooth International
Cross Country Ski Races due to low snow conditions and poor prospects for additional snow by
December 31, the originally scheduled date. The new date will be Saturday, February 18, 2012, on
the Pincushion Mountain trails. All times and other aspects of the event will remain the same.
Dave is going to clear trail again this Saturday, 9:00 at the warming hut, all help is welcome!!
