Skiers are already wondering if there will be enough snow for the Noquemanon Ski Marathon. Here's what Jon Mommaerts (Executive Director for the Subaru Noquemanon Ski Marathon) has to say about it...
IF THE RACE WERE HELD TODAY JANUARY 17TH, 2006
First of all, the race isn’t for two weeks. However, that being said. If the race were today, we would have a full 51k race. Here is what would need to be done to accomplish that:
Fortunately our trail has been tuned extensively over the past few years, so our need for snow is less every year. Also, we have had to haul snow to these light areas in the past, so this is nothing new for us.
Again, we are still 2 weeks prior to race day. We have gotten fresh snow, and are anticipating more today, so we will be in fantastic shape. Bottom line, we are in great shape at this point. We are hoping for a bit more snow to save on some volunteer time, but the race will go on. These last two weeks often bring us great snowfalls!
