2014 - 2015 Ski Meets

Essex Park Time Trial - Monday, February 16, 2015

The Rochester Nordic Ski Team held the final event of the season, an intra-squad time trial event, at Essex Park on Monday, February 16. RNST skiers were blessed with the warmest day of the week with temperatures rising to 20 degrees by race time. As the skiers gathered in the archery range for the opening ceremonies, snowflakes gently floated downward creating a beautiful snow globe effect. National flags representing the many heritages of the ski team were waving proudly in the "olympic stadium". Coach Joey lit the "olympic" torch which was then passed around the circle of skiers ending with the captains lighting the "olympic flame". With the games officially started, skiers lined up ready to begin their journey on an expertly groomed 6.2K course on the Essex Park trails. Each of the 76 skiers enthusiastically skied up the first hill as they took on the challenge of the endless rolling hills of the course. A nice downhill run led the skiers to the finish line where they gathered with their fellow team members to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies. At the awards ceremony, the top five boys and girls skiers stepped onto the picnic bench podium to the cheers of their teammates. Many happy faces headed toward their cars as the sun set on another awesome RNST season! Thanks to all of the coaches and parents who helped provide the RNST a great experience at Essex Park.

Rochester Nordic Ski Invitational - Thursday, January 15, 2015

The Rochester Nordic Ski Invite was held on Thursday, January 15 on a 4.8K course wandering throughout the Eastwood Golf Course along with a short section in the woods.  A total of 201 skiers participated in the race with 120 RNST members joining skiers from Mounds Park Academy, Prior Lake, Red Wing, Rochester, and Winona.  Skiers enjoyed the balmy 31 degree temps - quite the contrast from below zero temps just two days prior.  Congrats to the RNST varsity and junior varsity girls who were the Invite Team Champions.

Maplelag Time Trial - Saturday, January 10, 2015

The Maplelag Ski Weekend was the setting for two time trials on the Skater's Waltz trail.  The experienced skiers used the entire 4.8K Skaters Waltz course on Saturday morning, while the beginning skiers used a shortened 4K version of Skaters Waltz on Sunday morning.  With the temp around 0 degrees on both mornings, skiers worked pretty hard on the slow snow conditions.  117 skiers participated in the time trials with a few skiing in both.
