The lack of good quality snow has led the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation to cancel the BirkieTour that was scheduled for this Saturday, January 19th.  That snow deficit has led to poor trail conditions and skier safety concerns.  Even though additional snow is in the forecast for the next day, that new snow would be quickly sheared off - especially on downhills - exposing the solid ice trail base and creating hazardous ski conditions.

Now the attention turns to the American Birkebeiner - which will hold it's 40th anniversary event February 21st through the 23rd.
