Greetings NENSA Community!
NENSA is looking for our next Youth & Introductory Program Director, and we are accepting applicants through April 9th. See box below for more information on this position and link to the full job description on NENSA.net.
The excitement of this season continued this past week with the Supertour Finals in Craftsbury Vermont, held last Friday through today. The entire event was so amazing ~ the crowds, the energy, the mix of USST/WC/Olympmic athletes along side our New England masters, juniors, collegiate, and BKL'ers ~ just such a great vibe and everyone having fun skiing in the amazing spring conditions!! Jessie Diggins swept the Supertour, winning all three individual events, and her SMS Team won the team relay.
See box below for some amazing photos, video, and links to full results and write-ups.
Saturday and Sunday were also the final Zak Cup and Club Championship races this season, held alongside the Supertour festivities, with the Spring Fling 12.5/25k mass start freestyle races held on Saturday, and the Club Team Relay Races held on Sunday. BKL'ers through Masters came out in droves to race with their friends and teammates ~ it was the perfect weekend to end a really phenomenal season!
See box below.
NENSA held a Masters Awards Party right after the Team Relays on Sunday, with prizes for our overall Zak Cup Winners (leader bibs and Cabot Cheese awarded), the Marathon Challenger Hat Awards (from SWIX), and NENSA mugs and assorted Zero Gravity beer awarded to all the age group catageroy Zak Cup winners!
See box below for some great photos and links to results.
Be sure to check out our Calendar of Events below ~ the season might be winding down, but there are still some great events happening in the next few weekends! How about the Stowe Race to the Cabin this coming weekend, as well as Fast & Female with Kikkan Randall at LL Bean in Freeport (the event is full, but an "open to the public autograph time with Kikkan" is happening from 2-3pm this Saturday 3/31). And, there is still time to sign up for Cochran's XC Challenge to be held on April 8th.
