On January 29-30th 8 skiers from the Methow Valley travelled to the 2002 Olympic venue at Soldier Hollow (near Park City) for a super-qualifier. This race included team from the Rocky Mountain, Far West, Inner Mountain, High Plains, and our division- PNSA. Over 650 juniors were at the race, making this the largest junior race in North America. The temperatures were cold- between 5-10 degrees F, and the MVNT skiers enjoyed perfect tracks!
Everyone skied well and pushed themselves to reach their goals of qualifying for Junior Nationals. There are two remaining qualifier races in February: Bend and Spokane. Junior Nationals will be held this year in Presque Isle, Maine, March 7-14th.
