I headed up the mountain on Saturday morning to check out the Great Nordeen Cross Country Ski Race. This was the eighth annual running of this premier point to point ski races in the area. This was the second year for the Ruff Wear 15K Skijor/Ski with your dog race. It was awesome day and an awesome event. There were 15 dog teams preregistered for the event. It turned out to be a perfect day for the event.
- For the second year in a row, Wyatt from the Mt. Bachelor Avalanche Dog Program and Ruff Wear Ambassador, came in first place.
- There were 160 skiers for the premier event. The dog count was up by a couple. Hopefully this event will gain momentum year over year. Watch out, Sophie will be ready for next year!
- Damon Kluck, whose dog Duke is featured on the cover and throughout the FW10 Dealer Workbook, finished 8th in the 30K race following a nasty crash early on.
- Ruff Wear provided prizes for the top finishers.
