Local Skiers to Fundraise for New Nordic Center

Duluth Cross Country Club Kickoff

Winter is nearly here and folks are getting ready for snowy sports.

The Duluth Cross Country Ski Club (DXC) is kicking off the season with a party on Thursday.

There will be food, live music, and a cash bar.

The Capital Campaign party is on Thursday, October 27 at the Grand Avenue Chalet at the base of Spirit Mountain from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The fundraiser is supporting  the Grand Avenue Nordic Center.

This will be a state-of-the-art new cross country ski trail at the base of Spirit Mountain.

This will have Nordic-dedicated snowmaking, dark-sky LED lighting, flowing trails that are fun to ski for all levels, and a full-service chalet and event center.

Also, at 4:30 p.m. before the event starts there will be a guided walk along the proposed new trail.

 The event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.
