It has been a great fall so far for PCNSC with cross country, jumping and Nordic Combined all offering dryland training.
We had our biggest fundraiser of the year on Sept. 30th the Red Bull 400. The event had more than 800 participants who ran and climbed up the 120 Ski Jump. It was great to have so many of our athletes and parents volunteering for the event.
Starting in September Emma Garrard took the position of Nordic Development Manager and Matt Terwillegar took on the role as Nordic Director. Former Manager Morgan Smyth returned to school to pursue Physical Therapy and will be missed. Luckily we will still see her on the trails coaching this winter.
In other news, starting October 1st PCNSC is now part for the new Park City Ski and Snowboard Team. We are excited for this collaboration and believe it will help the growth and quality of our programs.
With the first flurries of snow and registration open we are getting excited for our winter programming. We have a great lineup of coaches with Gordon Lange, former US Ski Team Coach, and Ruff Patterson, former Dartmouth Ski Team Coach. coaching the XC Comp program. Combined they have a wealth of experience they bring to the program. The Comp team heads out October 19th for a fall training camp in Jackson, Wyoming.
For the XC Devo/Devo+/Devo Bridge program Emma Garrard will be head coach with other coaches including returning Hanz Johansson, Joel Sehloff, Art Myshrall, and Coner Matthews. We are excited to announce we are hiring NCAA Champion Eva Sever Rus coaching both Devo, Kickers and Gliders and also at a lot of our races.
We are really excited to announce Annie Morgan as the head coach of the XC Kickers and Gliders program. With Annie's expertise we expect to see a lot of growth and improvements in this program this winter. Emma Garrard, Morgan Smyth and Tanya Swenson will also be coaching the program.
All of our teams have been training hard and having fun this summer! What have we been up to? Take a look!
