UPDATE: Unfortunately there is a big snowstorm with up to 10” snow and with high winds forecast for the Duluth area on Fri night into Saturday night. Looking at driving and racing in those conditions, a decision has been made to delay the race at Snowflake until Sunday with a later start, zeroing at 11:00. Hopefully this works for you. If you have already checked in with me and will be there Sunday, no problem, but if you can’t make it Sunday, please let me know! 

Snowflake has committed to grooming early on Sunday to get ready for the biathlon race. Due to the depth of snow at Snowflake, and the soft edges, Snowflake has asked that all participants and spectators either ski out to the range or use snowshoes on the edges of the trails [not in the tracks, if set] Walking on the edge will not work!!
