Park City Ski and Snowboard is elated to qualify 9 athletes and 2 alternates to Junior Nationals in Minnesota starting on March 7th. Wes Campbell and Sidney Bennion are also competing at Biathlon Youth and Junior World Championships at Soldier Hollow. For the final JNQ in Jackson, we had 37 athletes competing in age groups U12 and up under the guidance of head coach Liz Stephen. We recently announced the recipients of the inaugural Gordon Lange Scholarship, a merit and financial needs based scholarship to honor those who represent Gordon’s values as a coach. Seniors Wes Campbell and Elena Grissom received scholarship money to attend Junior Nationals this year. Both of these athletes have been part of PCSS since the beginning and it is an honor to recognize them as seniors. Our development programs in Park City are going well with kids racing locally at Wasatch Citizens Series races and at the Cocoa Loppet. The 1st Cocoa Loppet took place at White Pine Nordic and was a chance for our Kickers and Gliders to try racing in a welcoming environment. We had 43 youth take part, skiing a total of 384 total laps or 96 miles. On average each kid skied more than 2 miles. Another highlight of the season was having the opportunity to get some of our parents who had never skied before to try cross country skiing for the 1st time. This has been a goal for a number of years knowing that there are so many people who work in Park City and support the ski industry but are not presented with the opportunity to try skiing themselves. It was great to have it happen thanks to the partnership of White Pine Nordic and the Park City Community Foundation. We even had comp athletes Caio Brown and Bailey Carmack teach in Spanish. It was an absolute joy to see the courage of these adults to try a new sport for the 1st time, like it and want to keep doing it. Now these families are able to go out and ski as a family like so many in our club do.
