A celebration of Nordic Skiing: The American Birkebeiner

Tue, 2023-09-26

: The largest ski race in North America gathers over  10,000 skiers each year.  While the main focus is the marathon (50/55k) race, the entire week of events includes kids ski races, dog skijoring, ‘Giant’ ski race, sprint races, and 15/32k m races. There is a true celebratory spirit throughout the week called “Birkie Fever”.

Ann Satsangi grew up in a skiing family in Minnesota just as Nordic skiing and “citizen racing” was blossoming. Through the years Ann has embraced the many aspects of nordic skiing from racing, skijoring, teaching her kids, and backcountry treks. She is happy to share with the Mountaineers a version of her experiences in celebrating winter.

We welcome all to this Mountaineers’ meeting, on the regular fourth Tuesday of the month. The social hour, with cookies, begins at 6:45 PM and the program at 7:00 PM. The presentation will be in-person at Los Alamos Nature Center; the slides will be live-streamed on Zoom. Registration is required to Zoom and recommended for in-person – we would love to see your smiling face. Registration details will be posted once available.
