Taste 'n Tour
sponsored by

For those skiers that do not want to "race" but want to get out on skis and enjoy the event, please consider signing up for the 9K Taste N Tour! Take a leisurely 3.5 hr ski along the 9K course, sampling delectable foods at each of the 4 stops along the way. The starting point will be Norrie Park. There will be shuttle service from the bus station to the park as there is no open parking there. The ski portion of the Taste N Tour will leave Norrie Park beginning at 1:00pm. (Food will be served beginning at 12:30pm at Norrie Park).

9K Too long? Too Cold? TRY THE NIBBLE!
Due to the cold weather we are experiencing, we are offering a choice to you. The regular TNT will start as planned at Norrie Park, beginning at 1 pm. Food vendors will be there, and the pavilion will be somewhat heated. Busing will be provided, as planned. The first TNT stop along the course is the School Bus Garage. This is about 6.5 km from the start. The total distance of the TNT is 9.5 km. If you are not comfortable with skiing this distance in the cold, you may start a shortened TNT (aka The Nibble) at the City Garage, located on Penokee Rd. See MAPS. This is also the start area for the 5k Jr. SISU, and the driving route there will have signs to that effect. If you choose to do the Nibble, you must get there and back on your own, BUSING WILL NOT BE PROVIDED. There is plenty of room for parking in the City Garage lot. The Nibble will start at 2:00 pm. A SISU Volunteer will be there to direct and start the event. If you do the Nibble you will have one less food stop, and ski 5 k. The 3 food stops will be 1) School Bus Garage 2)Mannys Restaurant 3) Brewsters (downtown near the Finnish Line)

Plan to be downtown before 4:30 as the course will close then.
