Come out for some great winter fun at the NM Cup/Low O2 Challenge events at Enchanted Forest XC Ski and Snowshoe Area on Jan 28-29th!
There will be snowshoe, classic ski and skate ski events as well as free fun kid races! This is a great place to bring the whole family to! This event is put on by Enchanted Forest and Southwest Nordic Ski Club.
Lodging: Golden Eagle Lodge in Red River is offering event participants early check in, late check out and off-season rates on their rooms. Some of their rooms have kitchens if you need one and our members have stayed with them many times with great reviews. Check them out here: www.
Non-skiers: If you've been wanting to try a new winter sport and have been held back by gear/equipment considerations, this is the perfect opportunity! Enchanted Forest has everything you may want to rent for snowshoeing, classic skiing, skate skiing as well as lessons! Come up to check out the scene, meet new people, experience the beautiful trails and views and enjoy winter, and who knows, it may become your favorite cross-training activity!
Also, great new quad event being put on by Pagosa Nordic on March 3rd. Perfect for triathletes and ends with a swim in an open air hot springs pool! If you are interested and would like a skier to do the xc ski leg for you, let me know by filling out the Contact Us form on our homepage, we'll find you one. Or use this NM Cup weekend to try the skiing out - you may like it and want to do it yourself (its a 5k or 10k, your choice).
