With our snowfall today – Wostawea will be in high gear for the next little while. Here are this week's updates.

These are the first two races of the year. One skate, one classic race.  Go to the link for more information http://www.xcski-nb.ca/en/files/7714/5212/7001/Maritime_Cup_-_Charlo_NB-_16-17_janvier_2016_Eng.pdf
