Editor's Note: A number of people have contacted FasterSkier.com, asking about the current status of the APU Nordic Ski Center. The following is a press release sent to us by APUNSC.
Alaska Pacific University Nordic Ski Center (APUNSC) is running with momentum for the 2006-2007 ski season! Athletes are psyched, new staff has been hired, and the sky’s the limit. Earlier this summer, the APUNSC program located in Anchorage, Alaska underwent a transformation of leadership. New program director Erik Flora says; â€œThis is an exciting time for APU. We have put together an exceptional staff, an unparalleled athlete roster, and received uncompromising dedication and support from our Masters group and the Alaska ski community This is going to be a great season!â€
Young senior racer and US Continental Cup Team member Tazlina (Taz) Mannix adds, â€œUnder new leadership, APU has the potential to reinvigorate Alaska skiing and keep quality Alaskan athletes in the state to develop into world class athletes.â€
