WINTERSPORTS -- A nordic skiing race at 49 Degrees North on Saturday will take a leap from convention.

The 7K Chewelah Peak Challenge course will have a couple of mild features, including a table top jump and a banked corner. 

Also new this year is a Fat Bike heat.

Register 9:30 a.m.–10:30 a.m. at the Nordic Center.  Racing starts at 11 a.m.
