    US ski team member, Sophie Caldwell, lent her WC race bibs to a local youth XC club so the youngest racers (the “lollipoppers”) could wear them and be inspired!

    I've XC skied some of the Rockies and felt the best two locales I found so far are Leadville, CO and Ketchum, ID. I've heard Anchorage is an absolute Mecca for skate skiing. Where else is top notch?

    It's been a few years, but Canmore and Vernon both have world-class tracks for both classic and freestyle. The river valley trails in Edmonton at night used to be miles of softly lit goodness. And Elk Is Park east of Edmonton, classic skiing among the bison, is an experience not soon forgotten.

    birkebeiner season is almost upon us! Anyone participating in a birchleg event this year? The local one here is Feb 1st. The Norwegian meatballs with a pint of craft brew are an excellent way to recover the lost calories.

    Cool. I did a half dozen loppets, including he American Birkie, when I lived in Minnesota decades ago.

    28km classic with Honey today in slow warm snow. Way too many punchy pole plants. My body is tired as fuck.

    Been a tad warm near the valley bottom here as well. Lots of snowshoe trails punching out, and problematic grooming of the xc trails. Almost shorts and t-shirt racing weather.

    The Edmonton Birkie festival is Feb 7-9th. I participated in 3 of the 4 winters I spent in Edmonton. It was a fantastic loppet, although couple of the races with start times approaching -30C were interesting. Hard to maintain kickwax for 55km in those conditions.

    I've heard Bozeman: https://www.crosscutmt.org/
    And Craftsbury, VT always merits a mention: https://www.craftsbury.com/ski
    As a kid, I thought Trapp's in Stowe, VT was the coolest ski-anything I'd ever seen: https://www.trappfamily.com/trail-conditions.htm

    Group Trapp's, Stowe, and Craftsbury in a single trip and I'd call that a sick nordic vaca.

    Edit: US Nordic women athletes seem like pretty amazing people. Kikkan Randall was all over the state last week talking gold medals and cancer recovery. Reports are she was just awesome and all smiles with everyone. US Nordo fan boy up in here.

    Are you talking Edmonton? There is so much in the river valley https://www.edmonton.ca/activities_p...ry-skiing.aspx
    Sunridge ski park is next to the nordic ski club trails, where the yellowhead crosses the river. Spent a lot of time XC training there. But like the link i posted, groomed and ungroomed trails exist from one end to the other.
