March 12th marked the fourth and last Citizen Series of the season at Mt Norquay in Banff. And what a way to wrap up the season with 64 racers toeing the line!
Thanks to all the skiers who joined us for one, two, three or all four races this Winter. Thanks to your enthusiasm there is now an easy, approachable and cheap way to give skimo racing a shot. From national team athletes to beginner alpine and backcountry skiers, the Citizen Series attracted skiers of all backgrounds and skis of all weights (!).
