Weekend of Racing, Recreational Skiing at Forbush
With the fresh snow late in the week, Forbush Corner Nordic held its Freestyle race on Saturday and a Classic race that moved from Hansen Hills on Sunday and provided many more miles of open trails for the recreational skier.
Approximately 80 skiers raced on each of the two days on the snowmaking part of the trail system.
Jordyn Ross and Jorden Wakeley bested the seniors on both days over the 10k freestyle course and the 9k classical course. Ava Rae Zeratsky and Olin Kasoeriwucz won the junior classic 4.5k race. Arabelle MacLachlan and Zack Dunne won the 5.5k freestyle races.

Forbush Corner Nordic - A Unique Cross Country Experience!!!
Forbush Corner Nordic is a recreational non-profit 501(c)(3) cross country ski facility where you and your family can enjoy miles of rolling, wooded trails that are designed for all ability levels. Our entire trail system is groomed with large Pisten Bully snow cat(s) to provide the best classic tracks and skate lanes possible.
