BOZEMAN, MT - Bridger Ski Foundation and Crosscut Mountain Sports Center are working together to build a healthy, happy, and strong Nordic community in Bozeman. The two nonprofit organizations will be collaborating on several levels this season--from programming to NCAA championships and grooming staff resources.
“Crosscut is looking forward to BSF participants and their families coming up to ski this winter, and we will continue collaborating on youth programming and events in the future,” says Nicki Bailey, associate director of Crosscut.
It will be a community effort when the NCAA Skiing Championships come to Bozeman March 11-14, 2020. On the Nordic side, Crosscut will serve as the venue host, with BSF providing volunteer expertise. BSF Trails Manager Kyle Marvinney will serve as Chief of Course, and we’ll be counting on BSF members to pitch in as volunteers. (On the Alpine side, BSF will serve as the host club, and Bridger Bowl will be the host venue.)
Both BSF and Crosscut run impressive grooming operations--with BSF grooming seven venues around Bozeman and Crosscut maintaining over 35km of trails that are groomed daily. We’re working hard to share both knowledge and resources, and our trails crews have been working out scenarios where we will be able to share grooming staff and their hard-to-find knowledge.
BSF Nordic teams are looking forward, once again, to utilizing the wonderful trails at Crosscut this winter. BSF skiers participating in sessions at Crosscut will need a Crosscut trail pass.
The variety of terrain makes it a good fit for BSF's Saturday Introductory programs at Crosscut, as well as a training venue for BSF's Development and Competitive Teams. “Crosscut is a good compliment to our in-town trails, to get away from town and take advantage of the more difficult, mountainous terrain,” says BSF Nordic Program Director Andrew Morehouse.
