The 12th annual Par Fore the Course nordic ski race is set for today at 10 a.m. at the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center.
Late registration is available from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. today at the nordic center.
Organized by the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation, the Par Fore the Course is a relatively short, two-part competition that rewards a skier’s improvement over the course of the season. Today is the first race, and the second race takes place in early March.
Race distances include 3, 5 and 10 kilometers.
Following the second Par Fore the Course race on March 3, prizes will be awarded for most improved against the handicap, most improved in class, overall class champion and fastest times.
The Par Fore the Course is a tribute to Central Oregon skier Sharon Nofziger, who died in November 2000 of an aneurysm while skiing. The race takes place on the Zig-Zag trail, Nofziger’s favorite Mt. Bachelor trail, according to MBSEF.
