The Papoose Club will hold the 11th Annual Papoose Nordic Cup on Sunday, January 24. The event will take place at the Croy Nordic Center just west of Hailey. This is a fun, free event for young cross-country skiers ages 3-13 and features ski races in both skate and classic disciplines. Registration will be held from 10:00 – 10:30am on the day of the event and the racing action will begin at 11:00am. Refreshments and treats will be available, and all skiers will receive a participation hat and ribbon.
“This year we have such fabulous snow and it will be a great day for the little ones to show off their Nordic skills and have fun!” said Tizz Miller, chair of the Papoose Nordic Cup.
The Papoose Nordic Cup is a free event put on by Papoose Club volunteers in partnership with staff from the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Nordic ski program and the Blaine County Recreation District. This event was introduced in 2006 as a cross-country skiing complement to Papoose Club’s long-standing downhill skiing event for kids—the Kindercup, which takes place later this spring.The Papoose Club is one of the oldest non-profits in the Wood River Valley and has a lot of followers and a great local tradition. Founded in 1954, the primary purpose of the Papoose Club is to promote and assist educational, cultural, and athletic growth for the children of the Wood River Valley.
