U16s Dive Five Hours Only to Have Race Canceled

AttitashMembers of the Northwood U16 team traveled five hours to Attitash, NH to compete in two Super G races. There were two scheduled training runs before racing on Monday and Tuesday. Monday, the skiers were able to warm up, stretch and ski the race hill, but when they went up to the start they were unable to race due to a broken chairlift. Tuesday morning the athletes woke to a snowstorm, which later turned into freezing rain and twenty mph winds, which led to the jury cancelling the second race due to dangerous weather and snow conditions.

“We were all disappointed that the races were cancelled, especially after the traveling so far,” said race Ave Day ‘21. “However, in ski racing, there are always variables we can’t control, and we just have to go with it.”
