Who the Event Reaches
Because of the increased exposure and expenses associated with this event, it costs twice as much to sponsor as SNSA's other offerings. However, sponsorship of the Nordic Cup includes sponsorship of SNSA's Race Team. This means your support will be seen all over the Inland Northwest.
The race team travels to and competes in Bend, OR, Sun Valley, ID, Winthrop, WA, and the National Championship in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Reasons to Sponsor This Event
SNSA's events are frequently covered by The Spokesman, The Inlander, OutThere Outdoors, and more. We hire a professional photographer/videographer for every event & post about them frequently on social media.
This winter activity enables kids of all ages to be active, make new and build friendships, and provide a competitive and supportive positive environment of health and learning.
Throughout the season, the team participated in over 24 practices and 4 Junior National Qualifying races.
Several SNSA team members ranked in the top 10 within the PNSA division. Bridget Burns was ranked #1 in PNSA and top 15 nationally.
