Vasa's Midwest Nordic Rendezvous Moved to Forbush Corner Nordic.

Forbush Corner Nordic recently welcomed the high-energy, dynamic PSIA instructor Amy Powell and two-time Olympian and All-American from Northern Michigan University Lindsey Dehlin as the lead instructors for Vasa's Midwest Nordic Rendezvous, a XC skiing clinic, giving local skiers and coaches the opportunity to improve their skiing skills.  Over two days, different sessions were provided for the skiers wanting to improve their skating or classic skiing techniques.  It was a pleasure for Forbush Corner to have them and the participants skiing over the weekend.

Forbush Corner Nordic,
World Class Grooming

One of the great things about skiing at Forbush Corner Nordic is their great grooming equipment and experienced grooming personnel. Early each morning, Larry, Todd, and/or Mike hit the trails via one of the center's two Piston Bullys and transform the surface of the trails to a surface that contains great set tracks for classic skiing and a corduroy surface for control outside the track or for those using the skate technique. Larry is one of Michigan's most tenured Piston Bully operators, grooming here at Forbush Corner Nordic since it opened up in the 1980s. Usually, after grooming, you will see the groomers enjoying the trails, with the other skiers arriving early in the day for some excellent skiing conditions thanks to the dedicated work of these individuals.

A Few Pictures From the Past

Nordic Pulse is a new service that Forbush Corner has subscribed to so we can provide our skiers up to date information about trail conditions.  On our Trail Passes / Conditions page we have a map that will show when trails have recently been groomed.   There is also a list of trails, with dates they have been groomed.

 

The map and trail list can also be found on the Nordic Pulse Website.   One can also download a Nordic Pulse App to your phone, showing updated information.  Apple linkAndroid Link.  You can even see an icon showing where the groomers are. There is also an option that will show your location on the Nordic Pulse map.  Check it out.

Great Weather for Memorial Race

Approximately 100 XC skiers came to race and honor Marv in the Marv Stevenson Memorial Race at Forbush Corner Nordic on Sunday, February 4.  One could not ask for better conditions with cold temperatures overnight, freshly groomed and tracked trails, and a sunny, blue sky morning. With $10 per senior and $5 per junior, along with additional donations for the candy bars and buffs, $1200 was raised for pancreatic research.

On the racing side, the Junior race winners were Olin Kasperowicz with a time of 13:21 and Annie Paulson with a time of 14:27. In the Senior race, Ryan Harris crossed the line first in 25:01 and Rebecca Davis in 33:01. Results can be found at Memorial Race Results 2024.
