The Dogtooth Dash race has been the diamond on the Canadian skimo racing circuit for some time now, and it hosted the National Championships for a third consecutive year. That says it all about the passion of the organizing crew and the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort itself.
There were three race courses to choose and the main one went over numerous climbs, ridges and descents to total about 5300 feet of climbing.
Canadian National Skimo Champions for the 2011 are Reiner Thoni and Melanie Bernie. They were followed by Andrew McNab and Ian Gale, and by Julie Matteau and Billie Velisek.
The results and rest of the report will be added soon.
