|State Meet Trip
The ski season's biggest weekend and culmination of training and racing all winter. This
year the State Championships are in Cable, Wisconsin. We will be staying 2 nites at
Lakewoods Resort. This race usually takes place on the second weekend in February and
is formally the end of the season for the ski team.
Every year we encourage high school ski team members to ski the Korteloppet in Cable,
WI. The 29 km skating or classical race is the best way to finish out the season. Once you
do it, you are hooked for life into doing the Birkiebeiner! This is an optional race for those
who are ready. First time skiers get a free scholarship to do the Korteloppet. This Race
usually occurs on the last full weekend in February.
