The 2015 Pennsylvania Nordic Championships were held at Wilderness Lodge for the second year in a row on February 8, 2015.  In the end, PACCSA held one of the most exciting races in recent memory, with Nancy Herbst and Sheldon Degenhardt being crowned the 2015 Pennsylvania Nordic Champions.  For a full recap of all the races, click on the title above.    

 

Track!

Even the youngest Yellowjackets are learning trail etiquette - calling out 'on your left' to pass to the left of a slower skier, 'Track!' (clear the track please, a faster skier is coming through) and, of course, 'thank you'.

Yellowjackets 2015 - thank you, Birkie Foundation!

Thank you to the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation for the Young Skier Development Grant which was awarded to PACCSA Yellowjackets in 2014. Yellowjackets have enjoyed the plentiful snowfall at Laurel Ridge - 2015 has been our snowiest season ever! The photos show the team enjoying an agility session disguised as a game of 'fire and ice' tag.
