Rochester-area residents can win the winter season this weekend by heading to Rochester Museum & Science Center's Cumming Nature Center for NordicFest. Attendees can warm up with meat or vegetarian chili for sale — with proceeds benefitting the Genesee Valley Ski Patrol — and then partake in a 10k snowshoe race on Saturday and an orienteering race on Sunday. For those curious about Scandinavian culture, the Sons of Norway Lodge and Scandinavian Heritage Society will be on hand, and representatives from L.L. Bean and The North Face will dish on winter gear. Barring a storm, trails for skiing and snowshoeing will be open, and equipment rentals will be available.

NordicFest takes place on Saturday, February 17, and Sunday, February 19, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. 6472 Gulick Road, Naples. Free for RMSC members; general public requested donations are $3 for individuals and $10 for families. 374-6160.
