A message from Lee

Hello Skiers!

I wanted to pass along a message from Coach Lee. Feel free to let me (or Lee or Greta) know if you have any questions. We will miss him immensely!
Sincerely,
Emily

To all LVHS Nordic skiers and Parents,

By now you’ve all moved on to your next seasonal challenge, be it athletic and/or academic. I’m writing to let you know that I too have made a change. It’s with mixed feelings that I’m announcing that I will not be coaching next ski season. After five years of coaching it’s time I spent more time with my business. As a chiropractor I’ve made the transition to working on animals, predominantly horses and dogs. I’ve built up my practice to the point where I can no longer afford to be away from it during the winter season.
Nordic skiing is my first passion and it’s been incredible to be able to share that with all of you. I want to thank you for that opportunity. Thanks also to those of you who endured listening to my interminable stories of skiing and skiers, domestic and Norwegian, contemporary and “ancient history”.
It’s my desire to emphasize what great coaching you have with Emily and Greta. Greta comes from a lifetime of nordic competition including a collegiate career at the University of New Hampshire. Emily has two combined California/Nevada state high school championships and three NCAA finals (while skiing for Montana State University) in her resume’. She is presently a certified personal trainer. You have world-class coaching here and hopefully my replacement will be of Greta and Emily’s caliber in regards to their athletic ability, coaching skills, and humility. They are a gift to Lander.
Though I won’t be coaching, I will be around. I look forward to seeing you on the trails and following your ski careers. Thank you all again.

Sincerely,

Coach Lee Lofgren

Lander Junior High Nordic Ski race results

Wahoo! Congratulations to all of the Junior High skiers on such a great race today! The results are posted and available on the High Plains website

A big thank you to all of the volunteers. Web Webster and Matt Jacobson deserve very special thanks for everything they have done for the teams. We’ll get some images posted and let you know where to track them down.

Now, on to the State Nordic Ski Tournament in Cody next weekend…go Tigers!

LVHS Ski Clinic – Saturday February 01

The Lander Valley High School Cross Country Ski Team will be giving ski lessons on Saturday February 1stfrom 10 am – noon at Beaver Creek**.

All ages and abilities are welcome. This is great opportunity to learn ways to improve your classic or skate skiing, learn tips on how to ski more efficiently and faster or to try out cross country skis for the first time. If you are new to the trails at Beaver Creek and have always wanted to see what they are like—come for a guided tour!

There is no set cost for the clinic but donations to help skiers attend the USSA Cross Country Junior Nationals Championships in March would be greatly appreciated.

Ski rentals are available at Gannett Peak Sports, open Friday until 6 pm (it’s a good idea to rent beforeSaturday).

Given the forecast, it is very unlikely that the clinic can be held at the golf course, however,

**IF we receive more snow before Saturday and the conditions at the Golf Course vastly improve, we may move the clinic to the golf course. If the snow in town looks good, take an extra 5 minutes and swing into the golf course parking lot to see if we are there.

Directions: Beaver Creek trails are about 22 miles from Lander, about a 30 minute drive when road conditions are good, up the South Pass Hwy 28 toward Atlantic City. The parking area is on the right (West) side of the highway. Plan to arrive at the parking lot around 9:30 to allow time to walk to the trails and sign in. Walk from the parking lot, under the bridge to the ski trails. Be prepared for windy, winter conditions. Dress in warm, synthetic layers (preferably no cotton). Registration next to the kiosk opens at 9:45 a.m. Water will be available.
