#juneterm is a month long event with opportunities for BKL, recreational and competitive collaboration. Each week will present its own challenges – with leaderboards and social recognition for outstanding efforts and creativity. This month-long program is designed to continue to bring our broader ski community together – share standardized testing and challenge data – and yet be flexible enough to be integrated into athletes personalized training programs. We hope you will join us!
SAFE – LOCAL – DISTANCE(D)
NENSA says … the number one rule is SAFETY. Participants must select terrain suitable for their skill level for all activities and remain in close proximity to their homes – you are encouraged to complete the event solo or with the support of a small responsible group in accordance with your own state guidelines. Distance (10+ feet – no drafting) must be maintained if exercising with others.
Club Criteria – For every week a participant completes the challenge they will earn one club point for the club they designate in registration. NENSA will tally participation at the end of each week and reward the club leader with a special prize.
