Thank you to Nina for making this great video and thanks to everyone who sent me their video clips. If your clips didn’t make the final cut, it was probably not high enough quality footage (often the case with cell phone footage). I did get lots of fun video though. Thank YOU ALL for a great year!
Nina is currently working on our end of year video. It looks great but could use some more race video footage. If you have any racing video please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need it by tomorrow night.
Here is a video from our Devo trip to Crested Butte for the RMN U14 and younger Championships. AVSC rocked all events including an interval start classic race, coach relays, afternoon games, and team costume relays. Thank you to Crested Butte Nordic for hosting this incredible weekend. We are so proud of this group.
Base camp at Spring Gulch continues a strong season despite warm temperatures and little snow. Thankfully Spring Gulch worked hard to keep the trails open and skiing well so all practices could happen without a hitch. Now the new snow has made conditions perfect to finish off a great season. Thank you Spring Gulch Nordic Council!
Thomas Romano, Emma Borchers, Alice Amdur, Samantha Ferry, Sara Lambert and Adrianna Kuhn having fun with coach Gretchen Grebe.
3-legged skiers enjoy a sunny day at Spring Gulch while mastering a long glide.
Colette ‘Coco’ Dampire is all smiles when it comes to skiing.
Start ’em early! The kindergarten group is up for anything.
Today the USA made HISTORY placing 2 women on the podium and 4 in the top 15 at the World Championships in Falun, Sweden. This is a MUST watch for all AVSC athletes. Remember this day. We’ve worked very hard for a very long time to get here. We still have a ways to go, but today is a great day to be an American Nordic Skier!
Check out this awesome Nordic video that played on GrassRoots TV: Weekly with Walt, this week!
