1960 WINTER OLYMPICS The biathlon and cross-country (XC) events of the VIII Winter Olympics were held in what is now Ed Z’berg Sugar Pine Point State Park. The General Creek Trail (Red Trail) takes you on a loop through the heart of the men’s events. Here you travel with the spirit of the games on the trails of the biathlon and men’s cross-country ski events. Due to the many VIII Winter Olympic “firsts” future Olympic Winter Games were improved. The electronic timing, mechanical grooming, computer tallied results, television broadcasting and the Biathlon event introduced at the 1960 games have all become international standards. U.S. support for cross-country skiing increased significantly after 1960. Many of the participants of the VIII Winter Games went on to figure prominently in the burgeoning ski industry.
