Our Mission

The Lodi Area XC Ski Club was formed in November, 2005, with the
mission of providing and promoting local cross-country skiing through
high school and middle school teams that compete around the state.  The
club has also developed a youth ski program and adult training groups.  On
top of that, the club promotes easy access to groomed trails located in the
center of Lodi as well as affordable programs and events for families. Ice
Age Nordic was established in 2011 to embrace surrounding communities
like Baraboo and Waunakee and promote a Tri-county ski program.  In
2016, the ski club changed it's name to the ICE AGE NORDIC SKI CLUB and
began development  of a second trail system in Waunakee.

Ice Age Nordic Girls finish 9th at Rhinelander Invitational

The Ice Age Nordic ski team traveled to Rhinelander for the season opener race series. The Girls Team
finished 9th after 2 days of racing, paced by Lodi’s Amelia Heider who finished 32nd overall, followed by Norah
Lee 38th, Hannah Heider 40th and Alex Whyte 44th. “These were extremely tough 5kilometer skate races on a
World Cup type race course and all of our varsity girls improved dramatically over last year”, comments Coach
Dale Fanney. In the JV race, new skiers Anna Vanderhoef 39th, Mateja Rhogan 40th, Raina Bogost 43th, Julia
Kashuk 44th and Cate Beckman 49th finished their first major xc ski competitions. Copper Country Ski Tigers
from Houghton won the Girls division.
In the Boys Division, Ice Age finished 12th with Lodi’s Wyatt Bennett placing 42nd overall, followed by
Waunakee’s Lucas Thompson 46th, and Baraboo” Noah Anderson 49th. Braden Soulier 63rd and Peyton Meyer
64th rounder out the varsity boys scoring. In the JV division, Nathan Ducat and Todd Niles finished 29th and
30th followed by Derek Longua 35th and Nolan Feasel 37th. Coach Fanney again, “The Boys had the most
dramatic improvement over last year and are very competitive. An improvement in just a few seconds over
the 5k race course would have resulted in a significantly higher team place.
Ice Age Nordic is a cooperative XC ski team from Lodi, Waunakee and Baraboo. Next week the team hopes to
compete at Iola in a 6k skate race. Low snow and rain have impacted racing around the State significantly this
year.
