2019 - 2020 Ski Meets

Essex Loopy Loppet - February 15, 2020

RASC organized the Essex Loopy Loppet race for the Rochester skiing community.  Beautiful weather - 25 degrees and sunny - greeted the 18 RNST skiers who participated in the Loppet.  Skiers traversed the rolling hills of Essex park on a 5.8K loop.  Several RNST skiers enjoyed the loop so much they did it twice!

Heart Thumper Time Trial - February 4, 2020

The Rochester Nordic Ski Team held a 2.2K freestyle time trial on the Quarry Hill Trails under cloudy skies and a moderate 19 degrees.  The 40 degree temps from two days previous created an icy/hard pack trail, but the expert RASC groomers tamed the trail to provide fast, but controllable, conditions for the race. The 86 skiers received valentine chocolates after crossing the finish line!

Rochester Nordic Invitational - January 24, 2020 

Skiers from Lake City, Red Wing, Rochester, and Winona enjoyed great snow conditions with 31 degree temps at the Rochester Nordic Invite.  A 6.0K trail on the golf course and through the woods was enjoyed by 109 skiers while 16 beginner skiers used a shorter 5.0K trail.

Heartwood 6K Time Trial and Sprint Team Relays - January 12, 2020

Partly sunny skies with 15 degree temps provided nice conditions for the Heartwood Ski Camp time trial. The 58 Rochester Nordic Ski Team members skated a challenging 6K course.

The sprint relays were contested by teams of 2 skiers alternately skiing six laps of a short loop (less than 1K).  There was much excitement and cheering as the 20 skiers quickly passed through the exchange zone handing off to their partners.
