In Idaho, Nordic skiers raced in an adaptive division at a Nordic ski race held by the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation at the Lake Creek Trailhead. Able-bodied and adaptive athletes competed throughout the morning with top finishers from each division earning medals.
After an exciting morning, Nordic participants joined forces with Alpine participants in a competitive pick-up sled hockey game hosted by Higher Ground. Beautiful views from the outdoor rink at Atkinsons’ Park were met with loud cheers after each goal scored.
The next day, Nordic athletes finished off a great camp with a 7 kilometer Nordic tour starting at Phantom Hill and ending at Sawtooth National Recreation Area. What a great chance to get outdoors and learn new skills!
