WinterFest Nordic ski race results

The Pagosa Nordic Club hosted the first WinterFest Nordic Ski last weekend. Races included a 1 km Fun Kids Race, 5 and 10 km classic and skate races, and a 4 km combined relay race.

Races were well attended for the first year, with many racers from surrounding communities coming in for the weekend.

The Pagosa Nordic Club would like to thank its club members, sponsors and volunteers for helping make this year’s events and activities a success. A big thanks to the Town of Pagosa Springs for the use of town parks, and the Levine Family for the use of their property for the 5 and 10 km races.

The Pagosa Nordic Club encourages comments on this year’s ski events and activities. Send your comments to Your input will be used in planning next year’s activities and additional race events.

The Pagosa Nordic Club will host the next Moonrise Soup and Cross Country Ski Social on Friday, Feb. 26, at 5:30 p.m. Meet at the West Fork trailhead.

All ages and abilities are welcome to come have some soup and chili, ski under the moonrise and warm your s’mores over the campfire. This ski social is a loose format. The soup will be hot and campfire stoked until about 8 p.m. at the trailhead parking area.

The Pagosa Nordic Club is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization whose mission is to enhance winter recreational opportunities in Pagosa Springs by maintaining accessible groomed winter trails for skate skiing, classic cross country skiing and snowshoeing for all ability levels, and to encourage and promote the use of these winter trails through education, marketing and events.
