Justoyota Stirling Silver Hill Climb
Melbourne Nordic now organises this long-standing ski event formerly run by the Mansfield Nordic Ski Club - at Mount Stirling, of course! This race for many years formed part of the Victorian Interclub/Intergroup race series.
Historically, this race was run on a fairly traditional undulating race circuit. In an effort to give the event a distinctive flavour that capitalises on the unique character of Mount Stirling (and to give us a better chance of having enough snow!), the race has been changed to a (point to point) hill climb as of 2012. If the snow cover is sufficient, the race starts at 11:00AM at King Saddle, but may be moved higher and later (typically to the machinery shed at 12:00) depending on snow conditions.
The Stirling Silver Ski Race Entry Form contains details of the race for the current year.
Help! As organisers of the race, Melbourne Nordic is (always) seeking both race participants and volunteers (eg family members of participants) to help with the running of the race. Melbourne Nordic also has a weekend trip to Mansfield, coinciding with this race. For details see the MNSC activities calendar.
