Skinny Skis 27th MOOSE CHASE Nordic Ski Race

February 16, 2019

2020 Moose Chase Cancelled 

JHSC's Board of Directors and leadership staff recently met to analyze each of the Club's community-focused fundraising events.  It was determined that the Moose Chase Nordic Ski Race was not meeting the goals of the Club and not supporting the Club's mission. The effort that went into making the Moose Chase a large, regional event did not fit well with the Club’s venue at Trail Creek and ultimately was not benefiting the JHSC Nordic Program.

The Club was forced to make the very difficult decision to pull the Moose Chase offline for 2020.  Discussions will continue between our Nordic Program, staff, and board about how to bring back an improved community Nordic event in the future.

JHSC would like to express a very heartfelt thank you to Skinny Skis, 4JH Lodging Tax, all of our Moose Chase sponsors, and everyone who has supported the event over its 27 year history.
