PINKHAM NOTCH — Scheduled to make a guest appearance at the annual Nordic Demo Day at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center on Sunday, Jan. 19, will be American Women’s Olympic gold medalist Kikkan Randall, 37, of Anchorage, Alaska.

Randall is a five-time Olympian who made history in the 2018 Olympics by winning gold in the women’s Nordic Team Sprint with teammate Jessie Diggins. Together, they became the first American cross-country skiers to win an Olympic gold medal.

Among her long list of accomplishments are 13 World Cup victories, 29 World Cup podiums, six Olympic top-10s, 17 U.S. national championships and three World Championship medals.

Randall will be at the Fischer tent. She also will be meeting with the Bill Koch League youth ski club after lunch, and then giving a presentation in the base lodge from 3-4 p.m. Afterward, she will be signing posters.

In addition to Randall’s appearance, the day’s activities will include the chance for skiers to demo the latest ski and snowshoe equipment from industry-leading companies such as Fischer, Tubbs, Rossignol, Swix, Salomon and Atomic.

A single-day trail pass or season pass provides access to try the array of equipment and talk to the experts behind the brands. Great Glen Outfitters is offering a 20 percent on all inventory at the shop for this one-day event.

Great Glen Outfitters is located on Route 16 in Pinkham Notch at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road.
