While the slalom and giant slalom races for this weekend's Dartmouth Winter Carnival will be held as scheduled at the Dartmouth Skiway, recent warm weather and heavy rains have forced the relocation of Friday's and Saturday's cross country ski races.

Men's and women's cross country competition will be moved to the Craftsbury Ski Touring Center in Craftsbury, VT, about 90 minutes north of Hanover.

The race schedule for Friday, February 10, includes the men's 20-kilometer freestyle race at 10 a.m., followed by the women's 15-kilometer freestyle at 11:30. Both events will be mass-start races, with all competitors starting simultaneously.

The schedule for Saturday, February 11, is for the women's 5-kilometer classical race at 10 a.m, followed by the men's 10-kilometer classical at 10:45.

For driving directions and more information about the Craftsbury Ski Touring Center, see the Craftsbury Ski Touring Center Web site.

Alpine races, both slalom and giant slalom, will be held as scheduled Friday and Saturday on the Big Green's home course at the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme Center, N.H. The giant slalom begins with the women's first run at 9:30 a.m. and the men's first run at 10:30; second runs begin at 1 p.m. The men's and women's slalom will be held Saturday, with the men's first run at 9:30 a.m., the women's first run at 10:30, and second runs beginning at 1 p.m.
