 Parking Info:  There will be a parking person available to help.  Officials and VIP’s will park in a small lot closest to the trails.  The next two lots out are for teams and buses (can usually fit 8 buses).  After that remaining buses, parents and spectators will park around some industrial buildings about a 2 minute walk from the trails.  Cars can come in close for drop off. 

 The stadium is about 400’ in from the trailhead.  Teams can set up in the stadium area (a sled or 2 will help with moving gear in).  There is no lodge or power so team buses are needed for shelter.  There will be 4 porta potties at the trail head plus the Fryeburg Academy field house will be open.   Teams can stop there first to use the bathrooms.  It is about a mile from the trails.

 Course Info: The course will be groomed and set by Friday evening (sooner if possible).  Course will be single track, best line, with 3 tracks to the finish.  The tracks will be lifted in several places .   The course will be marked Saturday morning.  

 The course skis 95% of the state meet course.  It will be missing one good climb plus a short technical downhill.
