The Annual Peru Nordic Tour de Ski gets underway on Friday 12/27/2013… This Annual Tour Pays Tribute to NJ’s Titans of Thrash… OVERKILL … The Wrecking Crew is out of hand!!!
During the Tour, The EVIL EMPIRE leaves a swath of destruction across nordic trails and High Peaks throughout the world. Skiers also collect some killer VHCS Points during the week-long skithrasxtravaganza of skiing. Skiers across the globe are welcome to participate… and if you are a member of the Peru Nordic Masters, you will earn some sweet mothertruckin’ VHCS points!!!
1. Do I have to do all the stages to take part in the TdS?No, do one stage, do all stages, you will be counted in the TdS standings. Because it’s prime peakbagging season, if you go hiking instead of skiing on a certain stage, you will receive points, too. So, get out there and enjoy winter in the High Peaks!2. How do the TdS standings work?Skiers will score VHCS points in each stage. The points from each stage will be added together to determine the overall champ.3. I would really like to do all the stages, but I am busy on some of those days.That’s OK, you can do any stage on any day and enter your results, in fact, you can do all of the stages on one day if you wish, however bonus points are given for completing a stage on it’s assigned day.4. Is there an official start time for each stage?There may be official start times for each stage, but again if you can’t make the start, that’s OK, just complete the stage on your own and enter your result online into the VHCS computer. All updates will be posted on our Facebook page. 5. What are the Stages?
