The first XC ski race of the 2012-2013 winter in North America was held under beautiful sunny skies and a firm but compliant trail. Temperatures reached near 60F with little wind. Racers could be seen in shorts and t-shirts as they skied the Ski Fest course. Mike Wagnar (Swix/Fischer regional rep) spent the entire time racking and packing the snow that had been deposited by many Vasa Ski Club volunteers over the past several days from the Zamboni at the local ice rink.
