On Friday morning starting at 10AM we will have a race clinic put on by two great racers/coaches. (And possibly some additional world class competitors) meet at the top of the race course on the Suntanner trail right in front of the base lodge.
Immediately following the clinic at 11:15AM to 2PM will be the ECES dual GS FUN race . There will be classes for racers and non-racers. Meet at the top of the race course on the Suntanner trail.
