Barnelopet rescheduled for Saturday
As they might say in Oslo, “La oss prøve dette igjen (Let’s try this again).”
The Barnelopet, the annual children’s cross-country ski race sponsored by the Sons of Norway, has been rescheduled for Saturday after the original date in March was snowed out.
The event, sponsored by Vestafjell Lodge of the Sons of Norway in cooperation with the Grand Mesa Nordic Council, will be at the Skyway Nordic Area on Grand Mesa.
The event is free and open to all young skiers ages 3-16.
Registration begins at 10 a.m., and free lessons are at 11 a.m. and races at noon. Races vary from one kilometer to five kilometers, and no cross-country ski experience is necessary.
The ski package needs to be reserved by Wednesday.
As any Norwegian also might say, “Mange tusen takk (many thousand thanks).”
