All training and competitions for the Championships will be hosted on Telemark Resort property located just three miles east of the town of Cable. The storied property, which sits along the nearly one million acre Chequamagon National Forest, boasts over 300km of groomed cross-country ski trails and serves as the starting point of the American Birkenbeiner, which is the largest cross country ski race in North America.

Nestled at the base of Mount Telemark, the venue is outstanding, of international standard with appropriate access and located within seven miles of the Athlete’s Village.

A Challenging Telemark Chase!

This past weekend two days of Fantastic JNQ, High School & Middle School racing was held on the Telemark Grounds ~ The Telemark Chase. Saturday’s Classic events & Sunday’s Freestyle gave a terrifically challenging course to all of those who participated. We were Out There to provide race service for the CVN ( https://www.facebook.com/cvnskiteam ) Team. With Lots of Fantastic teams from LNR ( https://www.facebook.com/GoTraining ) ANST ( https://www.facebook.com/skiwithanst ) Wausau ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wausau-Nordic-Ski-Club/73769576683 ) and more. These young athletes brought their “A” game for competition & effort on this difficult course. It is great to see the “Next Generation” of Nordic ski racers pushing the limits on their road to higher level competition.
