My 11 year old boy did a 3k classic followed by a 3 k skate ski race. They award ribbons to 4 th place. We are having a chuckle about it. I’m glad he got out there and did a thing, that is better than most children at this age.
His is still one of the best alpine skiers in his class that is not on alpine race team. When they go skiing at school he skis with the advanced group that is all race team kids.
A dapper husky for your time.
