This link will reside on the junior racing page and skiers and coaches can submit items such as race results, team profiles, stories from the athletes, etc. All submissions should be sent to Janice Sibilia for posting at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On January 27th, skiing will be free in the Methow Valley. It's the Methow Valley's "backyard ski day", and there will be no trail passes required on the 200km MVSTA trail network. Local rental shops will have free rental skis for beginners or anyone who needs some skis to use. There will be free baked goods at trail heads. And free shuttles for point-to-point skiers. Grass-roots programs that introduce people to cross country skiing are a key to the development of the sport. Do your part and encourage your friends to try skiing.

Ok, so I lied in the title. This post has almost nothing to do with Torin Koos. The whole reason I started this blog (or, at least, one of them) was that it seemed to me that folks in the XC skiing world had all sorts of weird beliefs about their sport that ought to [...] Related posts:A New Sprint Points Method Andrew Newell: Qualifying vs. Heats Top 10 Qualification vs. Making The Final
