Pedal Power Nordic Snowshoe Adventure Series kicks off its eight season

VAIL- For the folks in the valley who don’t have the luxury of a ski pass this winter, and, for anyone who simply loves snowshoeing, the Pedal Power Nordic Adventure Series begins its eighth season Saturday, December 6th.

The first race is the Vail Nordic Center 4-Miler snowshoe race.

This season’s inaugural race will begin and end at the Vail Nordic Center located at the Vail Golf Course Clubhouse in East Vail.

The course follows singletrack, with challenging short climbs and long stretches to open it up.

Once again, all proceeds from the Nordic Adventure Series will benefit local Eagle County charities.

Past beneficiaries include The Lyndon Ellefson Family Fund, The Eagle County Literacy Project, Mountain Hospice, The Dan Westover Family Fund and The Joseph Nordbee Family Fund.

The series consists of four events starting in early December and running through February.

The Nordic Adventure Series will attract top nordic competitors from around the region. Among this year’s events are the qualifying race for the National Snowshoe Championships as well as the Colorado State Championship race.

Registration for the first event is $15. Participants can pre-register with forms from Pedal Power Bicycle Shop in Eagle-Vail or by calling 970 845-0931. Participants may also register on the day of the event at the race start. Start time is scheduled for 10:00 am.
