HIDDEN VALLEY HOLIDAY GAMES!
Update! The Games were a terrific success. There were relays, races and golf balls (particularly challenging). We hope to see everyone and their friends and family next year, December 28th-29th, 2013. There will be plenty to keep it fun, fast and friendly.
The Ely Nordic Ski Club wanted to celebrate the end of the year, the start of winter and being together with friends and family. We wanted to get get a jump on the ski season in Ely and offer another way for people to spend time during the holidays. So we’re hosting an event for everybody, athlete, spectator and anybody in between.

Come early for the relays. Watch young kids sprint it out for prizes! Then line the trails to watch fast skiers compete over and over. There will be concessions and a bonfire. You can see it all
