The Hood River Valley Nordic team traveled to Bend over the weekend, where it found enough snow to continue the season’s OHSNO league race series. The race was originally scheduled for Mt. Hood, and was planned to be a “Pursuit” style race with both classic and skate legs, but the lack of snowpack and dire weather predictions forced a move to central Oregon, where the mountains have a bit more snow.
