The Nordic skiing state high school championships scheduled for Monday and Tuesday have been moved to Gore Mountain in North Creek.

Both the state Nordic and Alpine events were originally slated to be held at Bristol Mountain in Canandaigua. The Alpine event will still be held at Bristol, also on Monday and Tuesday.

According to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association, moving the Nordic even to Gore Mountain became necessary because of unseasonably warm temperatures this week and an unfavorable long-range weather forecast for the area. This has only affected the Nordic course and will not affect the Alpine course, which still has fresh snow and the ability to provide a top-rate championship.

"The decision to move the NYSPHSAA Nordic state championships to Gore Mountain was based on conditions at Bristol Mountain that did not allow us to host a quality state championship event next week," said NYSPHSAA Executive Director Robert Zayas. "Bristol Mountain will continue to serve as the host of the Alpine championships and we are thankful that Gore has worked with us to move the Nordic championships for a second consecutive year. While this is not ideal, it is always our goal to provide the best championship experience for our student-athletes in the safest environment and in the best possible venues."

The race schedule remains the same for both skiing events.

Monday

Alpine at Bristol Mountain: Girls' first run at 10 a.m., followed by boys' first run. Girls' second run at 1 p.m., followed by boys' second run.

Nordic at Gore Mountain: Girls' skating relay 3x3, 10 a.m. Boys' skating relay 3x3, 11:15 a.m.

Tuesday

Alpine at Bristol Mountain: Girls' first run at 10 a.m., followed by boys' first run. Girls' second run at 1 p.m., followed by boys' second run.

Nordic at Gore Mountain: Girls' individual race 7.5-kilometer, 10 a.m. Boys' individual race 7.5-kilometer, 11:15 a.m.
