 GIRLS DAY at TAHOE XC

The first annual GIRLS’ DAY at Tahoe XC was a huge success, with young female athletes learning, training, and having fun with coaches and role models. Designed after the popular Fast & Female program, there were over a dozen participants rollerskiing, strength training, and dancing. Thanks to Wilson Dippo, Valli and Kevin Murnane at TXC, and coaches Anja Gruber, Caitlin Bernstein, Britta Clark, Hallie Grossman, Heather Mooney, and Mary ellen Benier, with peer helpers Savanna Blide, Hannah Halvorsen and Bria Riggs. (And Doug Read for his awesome crepes.)You can check out lots of photos HERE

 SUMMERTIME TRAINING IN PARADISE

Truckee and Tahoe is teeming with Nordic and College-Age Athletes this summer, as our training programs are going full-bore throughout the area. Sugar Bowl Academy, Auburn Ski Club, Tahoe Cross Country, and our fast-growing Summer College Training Program are all over the mountains — running, rollerskiing, biking, hiking, and even skiing!

Show above are some images from the recent Basin Peak Sprint Relays. Check out some of the photos from the recent Drifter Time Trial HERE.

The 2013 Far West Nordic June Lake Camp, led by Nancy Fiddler, Mark Nadell, and Marie French with a stellar support crew of Mike Mcelravey and Steve Twomey. Athletes included Carson Bold, Laurel Fiddler, Connor Kusumoto, Phillip Oxford, Cameron Small, Cody Atwood, Piper Joubert, Quinn Lehmkuhl, Jane Nall, JC Schoonmaker, Camille Syben, Lindsay Twomey, Cameron Valois, Ryland Belisle, Savannah Blide, Markus Brun, Peter Carroll, Tyler Ferrera, Chloe Gorman, Bri Parker, and Sam Zabell (and, of course, Curious George). Plus a special appearance on our hiking day from Far West alumni Alex Kopytko, Branden Deeter, and Grayson Forsberg. Activities included hiking, ski walking, classic and skate rollerskiing, climbing North Peak, LOTS of beach and rope swing time at the lakes, and many other shenanigans, of course. They came back tired, guaranteed.
