Notes: It was another very chilly night on the trail due to the gusty winds and windchill. Three of the four weeks this year had cold weather, participation numbers were highest during the week when the weather was more moderate. Trail was relatively quiet tonight, and no ski jumpers because they canceled due to the cold weather and wind.
Next Event: This was the final event of the four-week series. Thanks to everyone who participated, we'll see you next season!
