Signups will begin January 14th 

This is one of the most anticipated trips of the year for the Juniors. It combines hard, extremely competitive racing on the trails of the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics in Soldier Hollow with a really fun excursion to Utah. We will leave on Wednesday afternoon after school (athletes will be responsible for their own dinner on the road), a quick stay-over in eastern Nevada, and then head to Midway, Utah to check out the trails. Friday and Saturday will feature racing against the finest nordic skiers in the entire Western United States.  Saturday afternoon is reserved for Tubing or Crater-Swimming (bring some extra $$), or just hanging out. Return is early Sunday morning, back in Truckee or Mammoth by early evening. There are very competitive races for U14 athletes all the way up to U20. Basically, the entire Western United States top juniors all converge on Soldier Hollow for this weekend.

Note that we will be staying in residential housing for this trip, and bed space will either need to be shared, or athletes can bring an air bed/pad and bag, as there is ample floor space.

Whether you’re an elite Junior Olympian or a young, first-time (serious) racer, this is an important trip for junior skiers (13 and over).

Coaches: Mark Nadell, Jeff Schloss, Holly Whitney, Gus Johnson, Nancy Fiddler (or Bryce Tiernan), Ambrose Tuscano, Maryellen Benier

Food Services: The Incomparable Linda and David Dore

This year these races are two of our Far West JNQs:
February 7, 2014  Super JNQ Classic Sprints (2 km. Mass start for U14)
February 8, 2014  Super JNQ Freestyle  15km/10km/5km (3km Mass Start for U14)

The Super JNQ is the biggest Junior XC event in the West.

Sign-up deadline:  Please sign up early to enable us to plan our transportation for this trip.
