Free Heels and Fast Skis

13 01 2012

Come on up to Hoodoo Ski Area tomorrow, Saturday,  January 14 for a super-charged event. It’s the annual Telemark, Randonee ski festival. Tickets are only $30. You can expect nearly 300 skiers from as far away as Utah converging on the hill with smiles, costumes and cranking turns like you’ve never seen before.

You can get the up to date schedule of events at:

The event is a fund raiser for three groups.

The City of Eugene Alpine Adventures Program

It’s a weekly alpine ski program for skiers with physical disabilities. Wow, you should see them rip it up!

 The High School Nordic Teams in Eugene

This past Saturday was their first race at Diamond Lake. The teams had excellent results with one of the highlights being Herik Morseth taking the gold in his first ever Nordic race. He won the frosh/soph 10 k skate race. Way to go Henrik and the rest of the competitors!

The Backcountry Ski Patrols

These hardy skiers donate thousands of hours of their time to provide rescue services on our local ski passes. A heartfelt thanks to all of them.

Come on up to Hoodoo on Saturday for a day you won’t forget.  You don’t need to be tele-mark skier to participate.  All things that slide on snow will be welcomed!
