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.

Halfway Through Carnival Season

Hard to believe but we are already halfway through carnival season. 
This past weekend at the Stowe/UVM carnival we had a weekend of mixed results. 
First day of GS started out great, good surface and pretty descent weather, however the afternoon turned into a bit of a blizzard, making second run a little bit of a challenge for some. Regardless we pushed through and produced some good GS skiing.

Slalom was perfect conditions and weather for all, it was a truly beautiful day for ski racing.
Highlights from the slalom was sophomore Michael Cooper and his career best finish in 9th place! Additionally junior Hannah Johnson got 12th! Good work bobcats!

Moving forward we are ready to crush the next three carnivals, Dartmouth will be this coming weekend, then Middlebury, and finally to top things off our home carnival at Sunday River is in just three weeks! You definitely don't want to miss the Bates Carnival so mark your calendars everyone! (Feb 24-25)
