Nancy Rosenblum

Nancy Rosenblum

Far West Nordic Website
An Alpine skier all her life, Nancy is relatively new to nordic skiing. Her 2nd time on xc skis (classic) was the 2002 Great Race and she swore never again. After moving to Tahoe in 2004, she reconsidered and tried skate skiing. Equally at home running a pediatric ER, playing with Dreamweaver, or skating up a hill, Nancy is now a web designer by hobby.


Mark Nadell

Editor/Publisher of NORDIC NEWS
Junior Trip coordinator
Far West Nordic "Auctioneer"

There are some who believe that Mark Nadell has been involved in the cross country ski industry since the stone age – the LIGNOstone age, actually, in the days of wood skis and pine tar. One of the few around who can still remember when Swix first introduced “Special” and “Extra” waxes, Mark has been a cross country skier, ski rep, salesman, marketing specialist, graphic designer, Nordic administrator, and flamboyant polyester-wearing Auctioneer for over 35 years. Mark currently helps coach the local juniors and Truckee’s Alder Creek Middle School Nordic team, along with his “real job” of graphic designer for the outdoor industry.
