SNOWBASIN — The Nordic Challenge 2010 cross-country ski race will be staged here Monday to help raise funds to rebuild Hospitalito Atitlan, a small hospital in the Guatemalan town of Santiago Atitlan. The hospital was destroyed in a mudslide in 2005.
Monday's events will include both 5- and 15-kilometer freestyle races. Beginners, experts, skaters and classic skiers are encouraged to participate. Registration fees are $12 in advance, available through active.com, or $17 on Monday. All registrants will receive a T-shirt, and raffles for skis, roller skis and other prizes will be held.
