Several Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks races offer reduced entry fees for club members. If you are not a member, click here to download a membership form

If you are a Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks member and you would like to enter all the Town Series Races, all the Distance Series races, the Sonot Kkaazoot, or any combination of those, download a comprehensive race entry form for the 2007-2008 season.  You can enter all eight races for $80, saving $15 over the regular price.

Also available is a NSCF competition schedule for 2007-2008.  This includes NSCF events and other Alaska and National events of interest to NSCF members.  This schedule is updated periodically with minor changes as necessary.

We can only put on races thanks to the generosity of our race crew volunteers.  We have a great race crew, and spending part of a day as a member of our race crew can be lots of fun.  If you would like to volunteer to work at one of the races listed below, please e-mail our volunteer coordinator.

In addition to offering many racing opportunities for nominal entry fees, the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks pays for all grooming at Birch Hill through donations for trail users.   Be sure to donate to the trails fund so that we can continue to enjoy great tracks.
