It was a tough day with temperatures in the 50s and it being the third day of racing this week for skiers at the XC Junior National Championships in Soldier Hollow, Utah. The course grew increasingly soft and slow as races progressed throughout the day on Friday.

Still, BSF skiers persevered with several top 10 finishes during the freestyle distance races.
