In June, NENSA proposed a shift to highlight Popular Racing throughout the East. The base of the concept being that these regionally run events draw together the magic of local skiing love — and with heightened NENSA support we can celebrate these mini-festivals properly and build participation, while creating new development pathways and opportunities for skiers of all ages and abilities. Clubs are the base of our membership and continue to develop new strength throughout the region — to better reflect the breadth of our communities we have revamped Club Scoring to include both, Popular and Eastern Cup racing.
This initiative, created a balanced and diverse calendar for the 2021-2022 season. NENSA is excited to bring continuity to the heart of these Popular events with event support, sponsor partnership, and increased staff presence and media at events. We are excited to grow participation numbers and development opportunities for venues and athletes alike, by highlighting the Popular Races Series including broad circulation of a soon to be released, NENSA Popular Race calendar poster.
**There are a few proposed competitions that will finalize the Popular Schedule after the Fall Board Meeting by the NENSA Masters Committee.
The Zak and Club Cup Series brings together NENSA’s New England’s finest citizen races. These events offer regional racing opportunities for developing skiers, and season-long head-to-head competition for senior and masters. There are often Bill Koch age offerings held in conjunction with many of the events. All events that are part of the Zak Cup Series are also scored for Club Cup points. All timed race distances will be scored to Club Cup scoring.
