A few years back the NYSSRA season was abridged to 7 races. This year we have 7 scheduled this December. Come enjoy it while the snow is great.
HURT held 2 fun races at Gore this past weekend. Casleton and SLU brought strong teams. Top spots went to: former HURT Star Bryan Beyerbach cracking the 20 minute barrier, and SLU’s Stephanie Nichols beating most of the mens times. With NYSSRA master racer Paul Alison on the side lines, the college kids took all the top spots.
NYSEF season opener is right around the corner.
That one needs no introduction- real snow + the van ho snow factory, great competition as always
“And Now for something completely different”- capital region race on man made snow. short rolling loop on man-made snow, optional hill climb, Fondo style, timed segments mean you ski for fun to the line then power through the timed section. Great way to ease into the race season. 6PM start, Awesome lodge with a fire and plenty of cocoa. Hosted at Maple ski ridge where capital region skiers have been training under the lights Monday and Tuesday Nights for a couple years now. Snowmaking is going well, updates will be sent out by email so preregister.
4.The most delicious race on our calendar will be on December 22nd, “the Osceola Pie Race”- bring your fastest skis and an appetite- registration page.
Simultaneously RNR is holding the first JNQ races out at Bristol. Head on out and race with the fastest.
Ring in the new year with a double header day of biathlon and XC skiing at Mcauley Mtn. Home of the polar bears (where Olympian Maddie Phaneuf got her start). The hills are steep and so is the competition. Well worth the trip.
