Springvale Country Club will be hosting “A Great White Winter Cross Country Ski Chase” on Feb. 11, at 1 p.m.

The ski chase is a fun-format cross country skiing distance challenge, in which individuals or teams of two or three skiers complete as many laps as they can on a short course within one hour. Every skier on a team must complete at least one lap, after which it is up to teams to decide how many laps each skier will do. It is a great event for novice skiers, families and even as a warm-up for those training for ski marathons. Team categories will be determined the day of the chase, but include family, co-ed, youth and multigenerational teams. Any combination of one, two or three skiers will do. Registration will be from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The fee is $10 per person. Springvale Country Club is located at 5871 Canterbury Road, North Olmsted, Ohio. There is no preregistration.
