CABLE — For high school Nordic athletes across the state, heaven met earth in a beautiful array of snow and cold that made for near perfect conditions during the 2020 Wisconsin High School Nordic Ski Championships. The two-day competition consisted of Saturday’s classic interval start race followed Sunday’s freestyle pursuit race held at the American Birkebeiner Trail Head just outside of Cable Feb. 8-9. With over 400 skiers representing 20 teams across the state, the local 4-H CANSKI boys’ team and Washburn Nordic Girls’ teams brought young and eager racers for the competitions.

“Though we didn’t have near the team scores as we’ve had historically, our skiers went out and excelled where it mattered most: improving individually, skiing together and having fun,” remarked Coach Doug Liphart.
