The Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association released the 2010 schedule of its member institutions. The western schools will not have to travel east as the University of Colorado will host the 2010 NCAA Ski Championships in Steamboat Springs, Colo., on March 10-13, following four regular season invitational meets and the RMISA Championships.
The season will begin January 11-12 in Park City, Utah, with the University of Utah hosting the alpine portion of its meet. Montana State will then host an invitational January 15-17 with alpine events taking place at the Bridger Bowl and nordic events at Bohart Ranch. Montana State will also host an extra giant slalom qualifier race during its invitational, as well.
Action will then return to Utah for the nordic portion of its invitational, hosted in Soldier Hollow on January 22-23. New Mexico will host an invitational in Taos and Red River on February 5-6 before the regular season concludes at Nevada on February 19-20 with nordic slated for Auburn and slalom events taking place at Sugar Bowl and North Star. Nevada will also host an extra slalom qualifier on February 21 at North Star.
The RMISA season will conclude with the RMISA Championships, which double as the NCAA Western Regional, hosted by Colorado on February 26-27 in Steamboat Springs, Colo., before the season concludes at the NCAA Championships, two weeks later at the same site.
