Wednesday Night Fun Race & Tour Series

Wednesday nights at the nordic center are all about getting together and enjoying a weeknight racing or touring with friends. Please stick around for a themed-potluck dinner after each event.

If you want to ski hard and smack talk your friends come race. But if you want a relaxed group tour that is available also. Tours will be led by the City of Pocatello Parks and Recreation staff and will be based on group interest and abilities.

Please join us even if you don’t ski. For those that do not have classic or skate skis the A-Frame will be open for ski and snowshoe rentals.

Whether you ski easy, hard, or not at all you won’t ever regret watching the sunset on Scout Mountain with friends!

The 2023-24 Fun Race/Tour Series is dedicated to the US Nordic Ski Team who are off to an historic start!

There are no participation fees but a trail pass is required.
