Black Mountain ski events this weekend

Jordan Travis – News Staff Writer

BEARINGER TOWNSHIP – The newly-formed Black Mountain Nordic Ski Club will host three cross-country skiing events at Black Mountain Recreation Area Saturday and Sunday.

The ninth annual Black Mountain Nordic Classic is Saturday, race director Denny Paull said. The 30-kilometer race encompasses the entire outside loop of Black Mountain’s trail system. Only classic-style skiing is allowed in the race.

For those looking for an easier, shorter skiing experience, there’s the 10-kilometer John Hardin and Marv Mendyk Memorial Tour, also on Saturday.
