Sunday, November 21st: Early storms have blanketed the Sierra and there is more snow in the forecast this week. Tahoe XC officially opened today heralding the 2010-2011 Ski Season, one of the earliest seasons in recent history. Auburn Ski Club will officially open on Tuesday, Tahoe Donner on Thursday, and Royal Gorge on Friday, all in time for the Thanksgiving weekend.
Far West Nordic would like to announce the naming of it’s Senior “Farm Team” for 2010-2011.
Elias Bucher -UNR Winter Sports Club, Gus Johnson-UNR Winter Sports Club, Chelsea Holmes-Sugarbowl Academy, Matt Gelso-Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, Kara LaPoint-Truckee, and Michael Collins-Truckee/Tahoe.
These athletes will be representing our grassroots attempt at producing top quality training, racing, and cross country skiing environment in the Far West Division. They will be working closely within the divisional Ski Clubs by volunteering and helping out at Junior practices. This is especially important for the perpetual motivation and development of our Junior skiers. They will also help boost the quality of Master skiing in our area by providing help with clinics/coaching and race/training day competition.
We are pleased to welcome them all to our team. Please stay tuned to the Far West Farm Team page for blog updates from the athletes. Please support them and cheer on their efforts when you see them out and about.
Far West Farm Team members will be posting updates, thoughts, and photos throughout the season.
