Gothic Mountain Tour Postponed
Unfortunately, the race has been postponed due to high avalanche danger.  This morning, the new forecast for the next few days increased, showing that the system that is moving in this afternoon is gaining strength, with forecasts for snow totals and windspeed increasing.  This, on top of an already suspect snowpack, may lead to very unsafe conditions in the backcountry this weekend.
We are working to find a date in the next month that does not conflict with any other skimo events. The new date will be decided today and published on the CB Nordic Facebook Page and on the Gothic Mountain Tour page.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you will be able to join us on the postponed date.
