The first annual Sun Valley Nordic Festival is happening this week.  Its been a big success, and will be on again next year for sure, so mark your calenders.  It kicked off with Ski the Rails last weekend, where several hundred skiers took to the BCRD groomed bike path.  This week theres already been  a skate sprint and snowshoe race at Sun Valley Nordic Center;  John Morton spoke at the library, telling some great Olympic stories;  and this evening there was a free outdoor concert with some fun night sprints in front of a huge crowd.  Saturday the Boulder Mountain Tour is happening, and this year theres already 1000 entries!  If you’re into Nordic skiing, this is the place to be this week.  This is the website for future reference  www.svnordicfestival.com

As for the SVSEF racing scene we’ve got Sun Valley Juniors headed to Boise next weekend for the final Intermountain Junior National Qualifier and SV ODT athletes Morgan Arritola, Nicole DeYong, Simi Hamilton, and Mikey Sinnott are racing up in Canmore at the World Cup this weekend.  Then Simi and Morgan are headed to the big show!
