Jackson Ski Touring Foundation.

The Jackson Ski Touring Foundation in Jackson has begun construction of a new competition venue for cross-country skiing. The new trail design, a collaboration between John Morton of Morton Trails and the foundation's executive director Thom Perkins, will meet the standard for World Cups, World Championships and Winter Olympic Games. Two loops, adding nearly two kilometers, will be constructed to blend with the pre-existing Wave trail, lengthening the entire loop to five kilometers. A new sprint course, up to nine meters wide in some parts, has been configured into the trail design as well. The new raring venue, designed with both recreational and competitive skiers, will be completed for the 2008-2009 ski season.
