This year the NDSU Nordic Ski Teams participated in Fargo's first ever Frostival Celebration. This event highlights all that winter and Fargo have to offer and that sometimes cold and cool go hand in hand. The Frostival features events like Snowga (Snow Yoga), a Snow Disc Golf Tournament, Cardboard Sled Races, a mobile sauna, and a Cross Country Ski Race!
The North of Normal Cross Country Ski Races were held at Edgewood Golf Course and consisted of classic and skate, youth and adult races of varying length. Most of the NDSU Team members chose to ski in both 5k classic and 9k skate races. This race was also special because we were fortunate enough to compete with our adviser Kelly!
The night before the race we had our first ever pre-race spaghetti dinner at Tammy's apartment right after waxing. Tammy cooked up a delicious meal of spaghetti, salad, fruit, garlic bread, and Rice Krispie Bars.
The team did really well at both races with NDSU Skiers taking the top spots in classic and skate races for the under 29 age group! Overall we had an awesome time and can't wait for next year's Frostival.
