The summit of Whiteface Mountain on October 10th.
Only 18 days ago we were standing atop Whiteface Mountain after the Climb to the Castle — good timing one might say for a rollerski event! While Whiteface might be a little ahead due to elevation — seeing white stuff on the ground on the East Coast is certainly exciting for all of us, and a reminder to prepare for the upcoming season and tend to membership renewals. (Don’t forget there are still two rollerski events left: The Maine Event 10/22 in Rumford, ME and the Mt. Greylock Hill Climb 11/5 in Lanesborough, MA).
U.S. Ski & Snowboard just sent out a reminder for the October 15th deadline for renewing members prior to price increases. Read on below for information about both U.S. Ski & Snowboard and NENSA membership details.
The USSS Oct. 15 Registration Deadline is Less Than Two Days Away!

USSS Coach Certification: L100 and L200 Hands-On Practicums
Here’s a link to the current calendar of L100 and L200 events that will be hosted in the coming months. Remember that all member coaches will need to be L100 Certified for the start of the 2024-25 Season. NENSA is committed to supporting the USSS Coaches pathway, having offered four certification opportunities this year. We will continue to offer Practicums as requested throughout this winter and next year when course access to USSS sanctioned events will become more stringent. Please reach out to [email protected] for further information.
NENSA will be releasing our 2023-2024 Eastern Cup Primer and Popular Race Schedule on November 1st. We look forward to making this season the best yet and seeing you on the trail!
