The Course

The Lake loop was abandoned due to lack of snow. This meant the Heathy Spur loop had to be skied twice by Hoppet skiers and once by the Birkebeiners. After completing the first loop, the Hoppet skiers returned to the Nordic Bowl via the steep descent and ascent below the Wall then skied the Sun Valley loop once more before doing the Heathy Spur loop for a second time.

Weather & Snow Conditions

Weather was perfect. Snow was fast but cover was very light.
