Glacier Outdoor Center Hosts Youth Nordic Ski Race

By Beacon Staff

Well over 100 young Nordic skiers will brave this weekend’s frigid weather at “The Race at Glacier,” sponsored by the Glacier Outdoor Center and Glacier Nordic Club. I believe organizers are still looking for volunteers, so contact Cameron Blake at if you’re interested. And if you don’t want to volunteer and would rather be a spectator, just head up to the Glacier Outdoor Center in West Glacier.

For more information, check out the press release below.

The Glacier Outdoor Center and Glacier Nordic Ski Club are teaming for a second straight year to host “The Race at Glacier” during the 2011 Western States Youth Ski Festival.
