From Thursday to Saturday, March 8-11, the 2017 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Skiing Championships will be held in Franconia and Jackson, N.H., with two days of cross-country racing taking place Thursday and Saturday at the Jackson Ski Touring Center.
The University of New Hampshire (UNH) is hosting the championships, which scores both alpine and cross-country together to determine team standings at the end of the week.
India Harvey of St. Lawrence University filmed and edited a series about “The Road to Jackson” for Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) nordic skiers. Here’s the preview, and throughout the week, we’ll release individual videos highlighting teams from Williams, UNH, Colby, the University of Vermont, and Dartmouth.
And here is a complete roster of who will be racing from colleges and universities across the U.S.
From the following video: “[Ski racing] made me a little type ‘A’ at moments, but it’s also created work ethic I’ll have for the rest of my life.”
