Getting ready for the Games!
Volunteers with the Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club have been preparing for the Games since 2017. Officials training has been offered to enthusiastic people over the past 2 years and will again be offered this Fall 2019. This training provides an introduction to managing ski competitions.
The stadium area was completed during the fall of 2018. This is an important step in preparation for the Games. This area, in addition to being an ideal spot for ski school lessons, is the focus area for race starts and finishes. It will provide spectators a great view of the action!
