This year, the World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association had received an application from Estonia for the Masters World Cup 2023 for the first time. Unfortunately, the organizers of the Tartu Ski Marathon were forced to withdraw their application for the year 2023 and postpone it to a later year to be determined due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fortunately, a well-known Bavarian organiser stepped in at short notice: the SC Monte Kaolino Hirschau, Germany.The experienced team organised the MWC with 1070 participants in Seefeld (AUT) as early as 2003, as well as many national and international events since then.
Therefore, in 2023, the MWC will be held on the expansive Seefeld cross-country ski trail network again, which has been expanded significantly since the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 2019. The 3rd week of March is planned as the date.

BEST WISHES TO EVERYONE
Happy New Year. It has been a long time since I've been in touch, and I apologize for the lack of communication. It has been a very crazy and unprecedented time, and it seems like whenever we start to make any plans, they have to be altered or adjusted. Through all of this, I hope you have kept safe, well and as active as possible. Hopefully, you have been able to get out for some personal skiing. It certainly makes us realize how important outdoor physical activity can be! We have following a few updates.
ONTARIO POINTS SERIES 2021
We had originally hoped to be able to offer a modified Points Series this year. With the increase of COVID cases in December, and the shutdown starting Dec 26th, we shifted our idea to a Virtual Loppet Series. We were just getting plans solidified for this, when the next‚Stay at Home‚ and Emergency Order came into effect. Therefore, to conform with regulations, to protect you and to protect and respect our host clubs and resorts, we have scrapped that idea as well. So, unfortunately for this year, personal skiing and training will be
the order of the winter.
We will aim to have the 2022 Points Series information ready in fall, 2021, so that you can get excited about that. In the meantime, enjoy the trails close to your home!
ONTARIO MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022
We were scheduled to have the Ontario Masters Championships at Highlands Nordic, Duntroon, Feb 19-21, 2021. We have now postponed that event to approximately the same date, 2022. We'll keep you posted with exact event dates when we have more details.
CANADIAN AND WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022
As you know, the World (and Canadian) Masters Championships, to be held in Canmore, Alberta in March
2021, has been postponed to March, 2022. The date will be March 3-11, 2022. The organizing committee is working hard already, and has the courses up and marked! So, if anyone is able to get out to Canmore, either later this season (if travel re-opens) or early next, you will be able to pre-ski the courses! Here is the link to the
