Feb 5 was a perfectly fine day for Ski-O: mixed sunny/cloudy/snowing; upper 20's; plenty of snow on 2' base; wind variable. Highland Forest County Park is an absolutely beautiful place -- EVERY finisher remarked on the beauty of the forest and the ski trails. Accomodations quite adequate thanks to the Park staff: ample size heated building with plenty of chairs and picnic tables for Registration/Start/Finish/Post-Event R&R.
Thanks to all who came and made it so very satisfying for the event director. If anyone has corrections to anything below, please let us know ASAP! Everyone enjoy the rest of the Ski-O season, as the days become longer and your times become shorter.
