Don't miss out on the snowshoe action!

There are only a few opportunities to qualify for snowshoe nationals, don't miss out!

 It has been a tough winter so far with very little snow in the traditional locations for snowshoe racing.  Heck, even Prospect Mountain is closed right now.

I highly recommend that if you are thinking of qualifying don't wait.  The Sidehiller race for this weekend is on.  My race next weekend (at Northfield) is not looking good.  No snow so far in Northfield :-(

Thanks for posting this list, DD. I really hope we get some snow this week. I'd love to race at Northfield. You always put on an awesome event. It's still my biggest winnings at a snowshoe race. I think I brought home 15 smackers a few years ago for second place! Hope to see you soon on the snow.
