SSCV Nordic skiers skied their hearts out on their home turf over the weekend, grabbing 11 podiums and 70 top 15 placements at the Rocky Mountain Nordic Junior National Qualifiers at Maloit Park in Minturn.

The Rocky Mountain Nordic Junior National Qualifier events are part of a series that ages U8 – U20 Nordic skiers can compete in, with the opportunity for the top performing 14- through 18-year-old athletes to secure a spot at the U.S. Junior National Cross-Country Ski Championships on March 6-12 in Minneapolis. The other qualifier events leading up to U.S. Junior Nationals included races in Aspen, Snow Mountain Ranch and Frisco. The competitions hosted by SSCV consisted of four different length races depending on the age group, gender and race type, including a 10K for Senior/U20/U18s, a 5K for U16s, a 3K for U12 and U14 and a 1.5K for U8 and U10 in classic mass start races. For the freestyle individual start races, there was a 7.5K for Senior/U20/U18 males, a 5K for Senior/U20/U18 females and U16 males, a 3K for U12 and U14 and a 1.5K for U8 and U10.

“We had an amazing weekend. The venue was dialed with weather and conditions that were as good as it gets. We had incredible volunteers, so many that know their roles so well and are just willing to help out and do whatever needs to be done,” said Eric Pepper, SSCV Nordic Head Coach. “Racing-wise we did really well. I think it was probably the most successful weekend of racing that we have had at Maloit Park, and it was nice to walk away feeling like the weekend was really successful.”



Dan Weiland, SSCV Nordic & Cycling Program director, said, “It’s very exciting to see SSCV kids race again on their home terrain with such outstanding course conditions and to be able to host a JNQ.”

“I am incredibly proud of our athletes’ determination and overall success at this competition, and with the help from our volunteers, staff and parents, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Clearly the hard work of our athletes leading up to this qualifier is paying off.”
