Bring on the Snow!

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!

Must Watch!

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!
