After full preparation in the gym and on the mountains of Austria, it’s time for Northwood skiers to begin their long winter season.

Two weekends ago, Katie Gilligan, Alpine Ski Coach, and a small selection of NYSEF skiers hit the road for Sunday River in Maine. Besides the two seniors, Julia Geraldi ‘20 and Andrew Van Slyke ‘20, the other skiers, Audrey Higgens-Lopez ‘21, Gabby Cote ‘21, and Jaden Klebba ‘21 had their first FIS races ever. Cote said, “It went great for the first race of the season. We all skied up to our abilities and got a sense of what it’s like skiing at a higher level.” She added, “I’m very psyched for this season. The ski team’s got some really good training in, and we all continue to improve. Based on how we all did as a group on our first race, we’re going to kick butt this season!”

Now that skiing season is in full swing, Northwood skiers are out on Whiteface Mountain more than four days a week, traveling all across the country for races. Their second race took place this past weekend back in Sunday River.
