The Papoose Club will hold the 10th Annual Papoose Nordic Cup on Sunday, February 22. The event will take place at the Croy Nordic Center just west of Hailey. This is a fun, free event for young cross-country skiers ages 3-13 and features ski races in both skate and classic disciplines. Registration will be held from 10:00 – 10:30am on the day of the event and the racing action will begin at 11:00am. Refreshments will be available, and all skiers will receive a participation hat and ribbon.
“This year is a big milestone – 10 Years!” says Tizz Miller, chair of the Nordic Cup. “It’s going to be another great event and the kids will have a fabulous time.”
The Papoose Nordic Cup is a free event put on by Papoose Club volunteers in partnership with staff from the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Nordic ski program and the Blaine County Recreation District. This event was introduced in 2006 as a cross-country skiing complement to Papoose Club’s long-standing downhill skiing event for kids—the Kindercup, which takes place the following Sunday, on March 1st.
“We are hoping snow conditions stay solid at Croy so that we can have this event in the South Valley,” says Miller. “But if there’s any doubt, check the papooseclub.org site for updates as the Sun Valley Nordic Center is an alternate location.”
