Ski Season Wrap Up

Just like that our 2016/2017 ski season has come to a close-officially.
After carnival season finished in February we have been busy at NCAAs, NorAms, Eastern Cups, US Nationals, and Canadian races. After a long month and a half of spring racing we have finally finished and are ready for some very much needed sun and break.
The semester is almost done as well (one more week!!) and the alpine team will be taking a little break before getting right back into training and getting in shape.
Next season starts now right?!

In the mean time we would like to thank everyone and anyone who has supported the Alpine team this year, we so greatly appreciate it!

Additionally we would like to give a shout out to Kelsey Chenoweth who is graduating this spring, congrats on everything Kels!

Thanks for a great season bobcats and bobcat supporters!

Bates Carnival/End of Carnival Season

And just like that our wonderful carnival season is over. Six weeks sure does fly by!

The Bates Carnival/EISA Regionals was very interesting this year...The GS race was a one run race due to the incredibly warm wet weather producing difficult racing conditions. Kelsey Chenoweth had a good one run race ending her GS Carnival season with a 10th place! And congrats to freshman Emma Finfer on an awesome GS run where she ended up 25th for college!!

The slalom races were equally exhilarating with some great skiing by many of our skiers. Michael Cooper had a great second run finishing overall in 7th place and 6th for college!
*Special thanks to Kurt and Dylan for their awesome announcing!

I'd also like to give a huge shoutout to our only senior this year Kelsey Chenoweth on her skiing career. Congratulations on an amazing ski racing career that you should be incredibly proud of. We are going to miss you so much you have no idea.

Looking towards the end of the season we have a few more fis series that we will be doing and NCAAs are in two weeks for our two qualifiers (Kelsey and Michael).

Middlebury Recap

Well, the Middlebury Carnival came and went. The weather was amazing as always and one of the highlights was Kelsey Chenoweth's 11th place finish in GS!

We have been on break this whole week ramping up for our home carnival this Friday/Saturday at Sunday River!
We are delighted to announce that two of the funniest amazing people we know, Kurt Niiler and Dylan Malone, will be announcing the races! This will help make the carnival the best of the year for sure. Additionally we expect to see many alums and parents and hope everyone can come up and watch as our bobcats kill it on our home mountain!
