Gogebic Community College Ironwood XC Snowmobile National Championship
March 18-19, 2023
We are extremely excited today that we have partnered with the Gogebic Community College and their ski hill management program to bring the Cor PowerSports series championship weekend to Mt Zion in Ironwood, MI. The event is named “Gogebic Community College Ironwood XC Snowmobile National Championship”
The Ski Area Management Program at Gogebic Community College is one of the nation's most comprehensive training programs for individuals interested in pursuing a career in the snow sport industry. Technical and academic study is combined with a practical internship which is conducted at major resorts Coast to Coast. Students spend their freshman year and the first eight weeks of their sophomore year completing prerequisite courses. During this period, the Mt. Zion Recreation Complex is utilized as a training laboratory. Mt. Zion is our college-owned and operated winter sport complex located on campus which is open to the public.
Hosting races are just another training tool for these students, this event will also serve as funding for the Ski Area Management program as all proceeds from the concession sales will go directly to the budget for continuing this program. Many of the students enrolled in the Ski Area Management will be working in various aspects during the event.
Thanks to the support of Travel Ironwood (Ironwood Tourism Council) there will be no spectator fee.
For lodging please visit the Travel Ironwood Lodging page at www.travelironwood.com as these lodging partners are the supporters of the race.
Course routing will utilize as much of the Mt Zion ski area and cross country ski trails that we can, exact course layout will be finalized approx. two weeks prior to the event.
The yearend banquet will be hosted on the Gogebic Community College campus in one of their banquet facilities Sunday evening after racing.
