Nordic Skiing











The MitoCanada Nordic Ski Team consists of athletes from across Western Canada and Ontario, all with a variety of backgrounds and reasons for joining our team. Team Mito skiers made their mark last season by placing many athletes on the podium of several major events. We intend to build on this success for the 2012 – 13 season. The Nordic Team will be competing in numerous race formats including a stage race, individual time trials, long distance marathons/loppets and the Canadian 24 hour National Ski Championships. Our team consists of past national champions, Canadian Masters podium winners, loppet and marathon winners.

    Woot Woot! Time to think about Nordic Skiing. How about getting a big Mito Group out for Golden race the end of November?

    Hi Howard,

    Funny you should mention that! We are assembling the team race plan and race team today and will definitely include that as our first event of the year. I am also a bit partial to this event as I am the Chief of Competition for the Dawn Mountain Challenge, now in its 5th year. We are also hoping to have an early season training camp for all interested athletes, including non race team members in early November at possibly Lake Louise. We’ll keep you posted. Thanks for thinking of Golden as an early season race. 🙂
