New Year’s Day Races are in Jeopardy!

After waiting with great anticipation, the Polar Bear Biathlon Club looks like it may come up short with it’s Christmas wish list. We asked Santa for snow, snow and more snow! We are hoping that the storm currently traveling up the coast will send some snow our way. We have approximately 1/2 inch of rolled snow on the course to ski on. It is no where enough for us to race on this coming weekend. Our range is in worse shape. A foot of wet snow would do the trick, but it isn’t suppose to happen for us. Added to our lack of snow we are also looking at above normal temperatures for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. We could have rain on the 31st, which would wipe us out completely. Our long range forecast isn’t much better.
The final decision on the race will be posted on December 29th here and also on the New York State Biathlon webpage. Please check back to see what is happening with the Polar Bear Biathlon Club!
