The CMSC High School Ski Team is open to skiers in grades 9 – 12 from any area school. The season runs from early November through mid-February.
Our comprehensive training program will cover fitness, technique, and equipment preparation, with individualized coaching and extensive on-snow time at Quarry Road Trails. Competitions will include events throughout the state with other high school teams. For those who qualify, the season will culminate with the NENSA U16 Championships.
Training is offered daily with a commitment of at least 3 weekday sessions and attendance at races required for participation.
New skiers ARE welcome — all over the state, brand new skiers compete in high school races every season. It is NOT too late to get started in skiing!
Our goals for CMSC’s high school athletes this season are:
- Have Fun!
- Advance in ability.
- Develop a life long love for Nordic skiing!
Head Coach Scott Dolan
Scott started Nordic skiing as a freshman in high school. The day he learned to ski he also had his first race! He finished in the top 20 and went on to become one of the top high school Nordic skiers in Maine. After high school he attended the University of Maine at Orono which no longer had a ski team so he competed in Citizen races. He earned level 2 certification as a Nordic instructor from the Professional ski instructors Association (PSIA) while working at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center. He has worked with many middle school and high school age athletes to help them reach their full potential as Nordic competitors. He has been involved in the Nordic community for over 35 years.
Assistant Coach Sam Trafton
We encourage all high school skiers to obtain proper fitting equipment for both classic and skate techniques. Proper fitting equipment goes a long way toward achieving successful results. We are having a fit night for middle school and high school skiers who need equipment at Northern Lights in Farmington on Friday November 3rd at 5 pm.
Bus service to Quarry Road Trails is available from some local schools.
