News and Announcements

Hello Skiers,
Spirit Mountain has opened an area for skiing at the Grand Avenue Nordic Center (GANC).

The GANC ski update is as follows: Groomers and snow makers will be working extensively on Monday and Tuesday to get things pushed out and groom. Some skiing will be available, not sure where and how much, that is depending on work at hand. Please do not expect the full loop to be available and respect the closures. Thank you!

East Varsity Skiers who have a GANC pass or are willing to pay the $5 daily fee and can get to GANC have the option of skiing there for practice. Meet coaches Patti and Mark for ski practice at GANC at 4:15 for attendance outside the chalet. Plan to skate ski.

All other East skiers will meet at East at 3:45 to run as we have been doing.

Reminder: If you haven’t filled out the Skier Profile on the website (www.dulutheastnordic.org) this year, please do so. That is what is used to make up the Team roster that is sent to the East A.D. office.

Note: Today, Sunday, is the last day to order a Team Jacket. Jacket order information can be found on the Team website in the News and Announcement Section.

Here is the website for ordering the East Nordic Team Jacket and Hat. Remember this is optional and we don’t change the jacket style for many years. So unless you outgrow it or wear it out (I’ve never seen that happen, LOL) you won’t have to buy another one.

The online store closes at midnight on Sunday November 28, 2021

Hello Skiers and Parents,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 East Nordic Ski Team.

Our practices start on Monday, November 15th. We will meet at East High School until we can ski at Snowflake. Plan to meet at 3:45 outside the main entrance at East ready to run. Please wear a mask while we are gathered for warm-up exercises and instructions. Practice will end about 5 p.m. for the new/younger skiers and between 5 -5:30 p.m. for the older skiers while we are running from East H.S. Please dress for the weather!

Our middle school skiers from Ordean East can take bus #2 from Ordean to East H.S. Before taking this bus, a skier must bring a not from a parent stating that the skier is on the East Nordic Ski Team and is using the bus to get to practice at East. That note must be brought to the Ordean Middle School office before using the bus.

Attention – Please Note:
We are having trouble arranging a Snowflake bus to go from Ordean East to East to Snowflake. There are plenty of busses but no drivers available. Do we have a parent that would be willing to get the proper license and be our bus driver? The bus company is willing to help with this. Please give me a call if you are interested.

All skiers remember – If you are sick, DO NOT ATTEND PRACTICE!

Looking forward to seeing all of you,

Bonnie

West Yellowstone Information

Posted by David Kask at Sep 22, 2021 1:26PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Hello Skiers,

We had been looking forward to the West Yellowstone trip this Thanksgiving but….

Due to the high numbers of COVID cases we do not feel that we can safely run our West Yellowstone Trip. Those of you that have been on the trip before know that we need to fill the buses and have 4 to a room to make the trip cost effective. This means that the bus ride, hotel rooms, our dinners and team meeting are too crowded to be safe during this COVID pandemic. We are very sorry to cancel the West Yellowstone ski trip this Thanksgiving but look forward to having the trip in 2022.

See you on the ski trail,

Coaches Bonnie and Dave
