Opening ceremonies were held Sunday night in Town Square. Snowshoeing, cross-country and alpine racing competitions will be held Monday and Tuesday, March 3 & 4. Awards ceremonies will take place at the conclusion of each event.
A dinner and dance are planned for athletes Monday night at the Waterville Valley Conference Center. Competitions wrap-up Tuesday at 4 p.m.
