Kudos to everyone who just wrapped up #JuneTerm! This month-long event presented diverse weekly challenges designed to bring our broader ski community together with some shared training in a flexible and virtual manner. We had participants of all ages from 7 states – VT, NH, MA, MN, NY, ME, and NJ – and Canada!
It was a busy month with our youngest participants building their own agility course, sharing their favorite trail or mountain through art, going for a hike, and getting out for a fun free-choice activity every day of the final week. The popular challengers/masters crew completed a 5k run, 10k roll (or bike), a double pole challenge, and an over-distance workout. Open regional training group participants completed an over-distance workout, did a double pole test, ran up a peak, and followed the virtual Eastern Regional Elite Group (REG) camp training and testing plan for the final week. Check out the test results from our #JuneTerm participants and our REG camp attendees here. It was inspiring to see the commitment of everyone working hard and training “together” on their own this month!
A big shoutout to EnjoyWinter for the sweet prizes and raffle items from Bliz, Start, Swenor, and Anti-Freeze! Also thank you to our event partners, Green Mountain Valley School and Nordic Team Solutions. And last, but not least, a huge thank you to all our participants who got out there and tackled the challenges thrown their way!
Next up for summer programming, NENSA is partnering with the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center to host the second annual Roy-llerski. This virtual July rollerski (or even bike or run!) fundraising event honors the life of Maine skier Roy Varney. Find more info here.
