Washington Cup Series
We are proud to be a part of the Washington Nordic Cup, a series of races for young competitors to develop their skiing and racing skills independent of the Junior National qualifying circuit. Athletes from around the region will compete this weekend for points, all building toward the season-ending finale races in March. Participants in the Washington Cup should follow the below distance guidelines to be scored:
U8: lollipop race
U10, U12, U14: 2.5 km
U16+: 5 km
Any skiers wishing to ski a different distance for their age will receive the minimum points score for that event in the Washington Cup.
