During November, West Yellowstone, Montana comes alive in color! The early snow brings cross-country skiers from around the world to learn and train on the superior Rendezvous Trail System, in fact seven international teams have used the Rendezvous to prepare themselves for the Olympics. Residents of this small mountain community eagerly await this season each year - looking forward to greeting old friends and meeting new ones.
Plenty of lodging choices, some with kitchens and some with full training table meal plans, are available. Many restaurants are open to cater to this special crowd, as well.
Thanksgiving week, as always, will feature kids and adult Nordic ski clinics, manufacturer's exhibits, motivational talks, wax clinics, racing events and an overall warm feeling of camaraderie. Everyone is welcome from novice to expert.
It is important to note that Yellowstone National Park is not open during this period of time.
Clinic and race headquarters are based in the Holiday Inn.
