March 17th Grooming Report

Good News from the North!

Yesterday was the final day of racing for the 2023 Junior Nordic National Championships in Fairbank, Alaska with some pretty amazing news finding its way south!   A quick glance at the results from yesterday’s mass start classic start race show Lucas Wilmot with a podium finish and “on fire” Lena Poduska winning the U16 girls 5 K race 31.8 seconds ahead of the closest competitor!  There were lots of other great individual results as well and looking at the overall team results, JHSC appears to have come in as the number 3 team in the nation!  Way to go racers and coaches.

If you are lucky enough to come out to Trail Creek today you will also be going pretty fast on the very firm conditions.  We’ve headed into some spring weather with cool nights and warm days.  The Husky covered pretty much every trail today with double passes on Moose Loop and the Close Field with most classic tracks set along the way.  While there are some areas that did come up a bit crunchy, all in all conditions are pretty nice.  Some early morning skaters were flying along and skiing should be nice all afternoon as temps warm.

Today is the last official day of JHSC practice, look for Juniors and a few Prep/Comp skiers out and about.  Next week the grooming schedule might back off a bit depending on weather and skier days.

Groomer’s choice for today is the Close Field.
