Speed on skinny skis

The second Coca Cola Nordic freestyle race of the season was held at the Durango Mountain Resort Nordic Center on Saturday morning. New snow didn’t deter the more than 70 racers who showed up for the race. The race series, which included races in men’s, women’s and children’s divisions, will continue throughout the season at the Nordic Center.
