Lack of snow threatens cross country ski Championships

Tahoe Donner Cross Country was selected to host the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) SuperTour Finals and Distance Nationals, April 4 through 11, 2013. Both races are the premier cross country ski races in the country.

The lack of snow is getting organizers worried. All of the racing has been moved to the summit at Sugar Bowl, Royal Gorge, and Auburn Ski Club. These three venues have more snow and they were set to host some of the events anyway. None of the events will be hosted at Tahoe Donner now.

All races are important qualification races for the 2014 Olympic Games. Many of the best athletes from the U.S. and from around the world will attend.
Volunteers are needed to help with this elite level Nordic competition. A volunteer form is available on the USSA website.
