BNS and Noah Hoffman Partner for 2018-2019 Fantasy Cross Country

We’re less than a month away from the start of the 38th official FIS Cross-Country World Cup. This year BNS is taking over as host of The Fantasy Cross Country Ski League.

Noah Hoffman launched Fantasy Cross Country for the 2015 World Championships as a way to give fans a personal stake in international cross-country skiing. Since then it’s grown dramatically into an international sensation. Noah generously funded much of the development of the game personally. BNS was a proud sponsor and is taking on the responsibility of keeping it alive. We are working on the final version of the game for release in the coming weeks alongside the new bouldernordic.com website. New features include the ability to choose athletes for each individual race, instead of each weekend/series, and side bets. Stay tuned for more information.

You can find all the rules here, but the way to play is simple: Sign up, pick your team, watch the races, and cheer for your athletes! The list of prizes will be announced soon, but expect some great gear from our sponsors. There is also a team competition where North American Nordic Ski Teams and Clubs can compete against one another in a season-long competition for an awesome prize.  

You can register online now at fantasy.bouldernordic.com and start planning your dream team. The FIS Cross Country season starts on November 24, 2018, in Kuusamo, Finland and ends on March 24, 2019, in Québec, Canada.
