Its Not Too Soon

It won’t be long and this will be us.  If you’ve got the bug, head out to Steamboat!?  Or at least dream of it.  Just found this on Skinny Ski:


  • Steamboat Springs, Bruces Trail: 4-6″ of new snow fell on Rabbit Ears Pass the last two days. Skied in trail packs to an average of 2″. Some real thin spots. It was 29 degrees when I skied around noon today. The snow was dry on top and wet on the unfrozen ground. Couple of laps on the 3 km loop made the old waxless classic skis run pretty well. Upper loop will have some thin spots in a couple of days. Next chance for snow is early next week. Grooming usually starts in early November as snow deepens

Get ready Red Wing Nordic.

Car Wash-ski!


Red Wing Nordic raised $226 at the carwash fundraiser this weekend. If you couldn’t make it, be sure to thank Calvin Harper, LeEtta and Eddie McDowell, Lucas Mollgaard, and Marissa Nybo for their great scrubbing.  Thanks also to parents Mike Harper, Martha Harris, Jeff McDowell, Coach Rick Mollgaard, Sarah Reichert, and and ski Grandma Cheryl Nagel.

Among our favorite patrons were alumni Emily Nagel & Phil Mitchell  who stopped by for a wash.  Funds will be used to defray costs for the ski camp, banquet and awards and more.
