This is the good kind of fever to catch!
For the past couple of years the Wright family has skied the Kortelopet (Korte) near Cable, Wisconsin. A 29k skate or classic race on the Birkie trails. We have so much fun that I want to encourage all High School skiers (13+ age) to consider skiing it with us this next year. It is a super fun, supportive, beautiful event with food stations, best groomed trails – ever. The course is filled with so many skiers of every level and age – out there challenging themselves and enjoying skiing with others. The atmosphere is charged with excitement, laughter and snow! I’d love to see our team (any skiers interested) give it a try. The Korte is on Friday, Feb 24, 2023. If there is interest, our team could stay over night and volunteer on Saturday at a food station and cheer on the Birkie (50k) skiers. Last year Kikkan Randall competed, along with other amazing skiers.
Registration opens today. Skiers under age of 18, ski in the U20 group ($115). Parents can ski, too (in a different wave)! It is expensive, but worth it! Let me know if you are interested. I am happy to figure out housing as a team – or you can travel with your family and meet us there!
