Casper High School Nordic race canceled ahead of winter weather on Friday and Saturday


CASPER, Wyo. — High School Nordic Ski Races scheduled for Friday and Saturday have been canceled, according to the Casper Nordic Club’s Facebook page.

The announcement comes after the Wyoming State High School Spirit Competition was postponed today due to weather concerns.

A winter storm is predicted to impact much of the state, with many major roads and highways closed early Friday due to blowing snow and heavy winds, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation.

At least several inches of snow is expected in lower elevations in Natrona County over the weekend, along with dramatically cold temperatures by Sunday. Some areas of the state could see more than 2 feet of snow, according to the National Weather Service in Riverton.
