Snow Stars/Kombi Race Festival
U6 – U12
Bottineau Winter Park, North Dakota
February 9th -10th, 2013

Sixty-five skiers from Asessippi, Bottineau, La Riviere, Summit, War and Westman Ski Clubs attended the ski race in Bottineau, North Dakota. WAR saw 12 of its U6-U12 skiers racing. On Saturday, participants rotated through various Snow Stars Skills Stations with their teams. These included a speed trap and a new pole-jumping station that had skiers jumping over 10 poles. All participating skiers were excited to receive medals (gold, silver or bronze) for the pole-jumping competition. In the evening, skiers once again had the opportunity to participate in tubing, followed by dinner in the chalet. On Sunday all skiers competed in the race by completing two runs each. Congratulations to all of our skiers for some fantastic racing!

It was an awesome weekend! The weather was fabulous as it was a warm day with sunny skies and the frost on the trees looked amazing! Our thanks to our coaches Jon, Destiny and Dakota and everyone who helped out that weekend! Special thanks to the organizers who planned two fun-filled days for all of us!
