January Update

A Nordic Update from Kate Oldham:

Hello everyone,

We hope you’ve been enjoying what is available for winter fun around here! Here is a quick update on the most recent news from team Project Ski More and how our winters are going. As of today we’ve collectively skied 2264.8 kilometers and raised $877.63 thanks to you all and the incredible support you offer.

We have also had some great results in the past few weeks at two Junior National Qualifier races. In Crested Butte, both Chelsea Moore and I won our qualifying races in the classic sprint and in heats, with me landing 2nd in the A final. In Steamboat Springs, we both qualified 2nd and Chelsea hung on all the way to getting 2nd in the A final.

Things are looking bright for the weeks ahead with only one more Junior Qualifying race and the naming of the Junior National Ski Team. We hope to see some of our athletes up there!

Thanks again to all of our sponsors and donors for all the support you have given and continue to offer. We couldn’t do this without you!

Hello All,

Thank you all so much for your extremely generous support. Here is a little update on how Project Ski More is going. (If you don't wish to receive these then please just send me an email saying so and you will be removed from our list.)

As of today I have almost skied 845 kilometers and we have raised $4324. I'm on track right now to ski my goal for the season 1,200 kilometers. Thank you all so much for your amazing support.

The season is going well for everyone on the AVSC Nordic Team. Right now it looks like we might be able to send five of our athletes to compete at Junior Nationals and we have a really strong team qualified for States after this past race. AVSC has had athletes on the podium at almost every race that we have attended. I personally was super happy after my second and fourth place finish in the Steamboat Junior Nationals Qualifier.

I again want to thank all of our awesome sponsors and donors and want to remind you it's not too late to donate if you haven't already.

In case you want to check it out we were recently featured in the Aspen Times and Aspen Real Life.

Sincerely,

Colt

Founder, Project Ski More

You might think the best thing about this day in 8th grade was my bronze medal cookie. Nope. It was when Nick Sweeney, my AVSC teammate and then a high school junior, ran alongside the course cheering me on. I didn't even think he knew my name. Nick is now crushing it as a U20 racer for Steamboat.
