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!

Dartmouth Carnival

Last weekend was the Dartmouth Carnival. Still not our favorite venue, especially those GS flats, but the slalom ended pretty well!

For the slalom junior Sierra Ryder had a career best finish in 10th place! Go Sierra!
Junior Hannah Johnson also had a pretty good day ending up in 18th, overall the girls got 5th, not our best team score but still pretty great!

On our mens side we had great skiing but unfortunately there were some DNFs, however we are confident they will channel that great skiing and bring it into this weekend at Middlebury!

Also don't forget the Bates Carnival is one week away!!!! We hope to see everyone there supporting our fellow skiers and having a great time, trust me this will be the carnival you want to attend.
