The Wasatch Citizens Series (WCS) ski races have been Utah's premier nordic skiing events since 1979. When the US Ski Team moved its coaching staff to Park City in the 1980's, the WCS became a training ground for many of the country's top skiers. The Park City Junior Nordic Ski Team has launched several young athletes to national recognition, and some of our older participants have consistently won National Masters titles. Members of the last three U.S. Olympic Teams, Laura McCabe and Wendy Wagner, began their skiing careers in our races.
The WCS consists of five events held each year at the major cross country ski areas along the Wasatch Front and Back. Two classical technique and three free technique races are included to provide the balance local athletes need to prepare for national and international competition. Principal sponsor for the 2011/2012 WCS is Smartwool.
