The NSCF has been hard at work preparing for the event with substantial improvements and changes to the Birch Hill Recreation Area trail system and facilities in an effort to provide visiting competitors with the best competition courses possible, as well as improved and expanded waxing facilities.

Although Fairbanks is not a terribly snowy place (average snowfall is 65″-70″/year) we have had a good and snowy winter thus far (10th-snowiest winter on record as of the end of February), and the trails are in excellent condition.
