Sun, Aug 14th, 2022 4:45 am

XC Week may have wrapped up yesterday, but events continue today. The NSW Ski Orienteering Championships start at 10.00am. Don’t be put off by the title - this is an opportunity for novices to try ski orienteering as well as a state championships for seasoned competitors. Bring the family, grab a group of friends, and give it a try. Enter as an individual or a team.

Dan the Groomer is out on the trails. All trails and links up to and including the 10 will be groomed and trackset this morning. It is snowing, so the trackset may be snowed in later in the day.

Katrina Phillips was the successful bidder for the use of ski locker 132 on the ski tube platform for the remainder of the season with a bid of $235.00.
