2014

It really wasn’t meant to be.  Not one board member planned for it to happen.  It just turned out that way.  2014 became the last year the race was held on the regular point-to-point trail, starting at Warman and ending in Mora.  Unlike the bad snow conditions during the previous two years, the year started out with sufficient snow and there were no worries of not having ample snow cover as race day approached.  Race morning arrived as a beautiful sunny, but cold day – great conditions for skiing.  The last and final skiers to take off from the start were from the combined 58km and 35km races.
