Eleven intrepid Dublin students, two faculty members and two parents participated in the Canadian Ski Marathon (CSM) on February 11/12, 2017. The CSM is North America’s longest and oldest Nordic ski tour. Unlike most ski events, there are no winners or losers in the Canadian Ski Marathon: it is not a race. Each skier can select his/her own level of challenge and try to achieve it. One can ski as little as 12 km or up to the maximum of 160 km over the weekend.
