Mother nature provided a well timed burst of about 2″ of fresh snow on top of a solid base this morning to help us put on our Freestyle Race. A total of 25 racers took to the trails of Byrncliff Resort to race either the NYSSRA Nordic 9K, the Novice 3K, or Bill Koch Youth Ski League 1K and then enjoy some pizza afterwards. Matt Bellizzi and Kristen Bednar skied away from the competition for the wins. For many of the entrants in the novice race, this was their first ever ski race and quite a few only took up the sport this year. We’re looking forward to more racing (and more snow next year). Now onto the NYSSRA Nordic championships in 2-weeks.
