After attending a fantastic skate ski clinic hosted by the Idaho Nordic Ski Club at Bogus Basin this weekend, I'm thrilled to report that I have a whole new set of practice drills to hone my skills on sticks and snow. However, I'm definitely not ready to race yet.
But if you are, Idaho Nordic invites you to participate in a low-key training race tonight. The format, like the club members themselves, is casual. The entry fee is a six-pack of beer. Meet up at the Nordic lodge at Bogus Basin.
The "race" begins at 6:30 p.m., so be sure to arrive warmed up and ready to kick and glide.
