Ontario Midget Championships 2017 presented by LLF Lawyers LLP
*** Note: Registration is now closed
Kawartha Nordic is excited to be hosting the 2017 Ontario Midget Championships from March 3-5, 2017. This three-day event offers the chance for skiers of all ages to see what cross country ski racing is all about, and we are hoping you and your family will come as spectators, volunteers or racers.
This year's event will feature an exciting head-to-head ski cross event under the lights on Friday night.
While this is an Ontario Championships, for many of the athletes this will be their first ski race, and as such is structured to be a fun and easy-going event. There will be classic and skate ski races in both individual and team relay formats.
We encourage all male skiers born in 2002–2007, female skiers born in 2003–2007 and paranordic skiers born in 2001–2007 to participate.
For details, please check out the official 2017 Ontario Midget Championships Race Notice or Avis De Course les Championnats de Midget de l'Ontario 2017 — revised 18 Jan 2017.read more

Fall means trail work at Kawartha Nordic! Trail clearing and volunteer weekends will be planned throughout October and November with dates posted to the website. What's involved? Simply hiking the trails, removing branches, sticks and large stones from the trail bed, and cutting back any branches that interfere with safe skiing from the side of the trail. If you come across any large fallen trees send us an email to let us know the location. A volunteer coordinator will be at the Woodfine Chalet at the beginning of the day and will leave instructions for those arriving later in the day
- October 22 and 23 between 9am and 3pm
- October 30 between 10am and 3pm.
- November 6 between 10am and 3pm.
- November 13 between 10am and 3pm.
No need to RSVP, just try to make it up when you can. Please bring work gloves, work boots/ footwear, snacks and drinks, loppers, handsaws, trimmers or any other equipment you might make good use of. And be sure to leave a note on the chalk board of the Woodfine chalet to let us know which trail you've worked on (latest photo below).
