Winter 2023 - 2024

Hello Skiers and Parents,

The 2023 – 2024 ski season is approaching fast. We hope you has a great summer and are ready for a great ski season (with as much or more snow as last year.

Your coaches this year will be the same as last year, Bonnie, Dave, Mark, Nona and Patti and we are looking forward to having you all back on the team along with many new skiers (i.e. talk to your friends and let them know the Duluth East Nordic Ski Team is a great place to be during the winter!)

The first day of team practice is Monday, November 13. Watch for information on team meeting and parent’s meeting dates in the last half of October.

We also will be taking our annual trip to West Yellowstone again this winter. Watch for information coming out in the next week or two.

In the mean time keep in shape with your favorite training and we will see you soon.

Here is a link to a video of her race … Also look for two of the coaches from our West Yellowstone trip.


Hello Skiers and Families,

We will have an Awards Gathering to celebrate all of you East Nordic Skiers!
