The final event in the Besh Cup Junior Olympic Qualifying Series will be held on the Jim Whisenhant Ski Trails at Birch Hill Recreation Area in Fairbanks on Sunday, February 6, 2005, beginning at 11:00am.  Competition distances are 1km, 2km, 5km and 10km.  All events will be mass-start events in free technique. 

The Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks recommends Wedgewood Resort for accommodations.  Wedgewood Resort has always done a great job of accommodating cross country skiers.  They provide dedicated, heated waxing areas for guests, which are invaluable.  If you mention that you are coming to Fairbanks for the Besh Cup you will receive a specially-discounted rate of $70 per night per one bedroom unit for the first two guests, with an additional $10/person for additional guests (beginning with the third guest).  Special rates on two-bedroom units are $100 per night for the first two guests, with an additional $10/person for additional guests (beginning with the third guest).  One-bedroom units can comfortably accommodate four people and two-bedroom units can comfortably accommodate six people.  A local rooms tax of 8% is charged on all room rates.  Wedgewood Resort is conveniently located less than 10 minutes drive from the Birch Hill Recreation Area.

The Birch Hill Cross Country Ski Center (the new building) will be open from 12 noon to 9 pm on Friday the 4th, from 10am to 6pm on Saturday the 5th, and from at least 8:00AM through 6:00PM on race day.  The ground floor of the "Team Pod" has an excellent waxing area with ventilation.  The old warming hut will also be available for waxing throughout the weekend, and is open 24 hours per day.  The gate at the entrance to the access road closes at approximately 10:00PM each evening, and opens at about 6:00AM.

Mike Miller of Anchorage is the Technical Delegate for this event.  Kent Slaughter of Fairbanks is the Assistant Technical Delegate.  John Estle is the Chief of Competition and Greg Whisenhant is the Assistant Chief of Competition.
