A big weekend of nordic ski racing on the Grand Mesa is scheduled for the last weekend of January.
The Colorado Mesa University Sprints will be held at Skyway on Grand Mesa on Saturday, Jan. 26.
Citizens are welcome to join this collegiate invitational race. A 1k time trial starts at 11 a.m. followed by seeded elimination heats. Registration is prior to the race.
On Sunday, Jan 27, the Grand Mesa Classic 10k classic style ski race will be held at Skyway. Race start is 11 a.m. with registration prior, $10 for GMNC members, $15 for others. All ages and abilities are welcome. Details at www.gmnc.org or call 434-9753.
The Skyway trail head is located just off Highway 65, about midway between Cedaredge and Powderhorn Resort. The parking area is safely away from the highway. The trails are groomed for both classic- and skate-style skiing by the Grand Mesa Nordic Council. Users are reminded that the Skyway trails are dog-free. Dogs are welcome at other trails on the Grand Mesa, such as Countyline and Ward.
