Calling all AVSC Nordic parents, athletes, friends and family: Spring Gulch needs us this weekend!
This Saturday, September 12th at 1PM will be the annual Spring Gulch Trail Work Day. Do not miss this opportunity to help maintain and improve our treasured Spring Gulch skiing experience. All ages are welcome but kids under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. We will be seeding trail and spreading hay on newly graded trails, cutting branches and clearing debris. Bring loppers if you have them, rain coats and work gloves.
This trail day happens about one time per year. It is very important for us to be a part of it. The trails that we love and use regularly would not exist without community support and trail work is the best way for kids to be involved. It is also a great chance to get to know parents, coaches and other Roaring Fork Valley Nordic supporters. Think of the advantage you will have in foxes and hounds when they get to see all the new trail improvements in September. College bound skiers can definitely use this work day as volunteer experience on their resume.
We hope to see you there!

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!
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!
