The 2010 and 2011 season saw the Alaska Pacific Nordic Ski Team set new standards for American skiing. APU came away from the national championships with just under half of the thirty medals awarded, and four athletes named to the 2011 World Championships team. For this past seasons successes the Alaska Pacific Nordic Ski Center received awards for club of the year, international coach of the year (Erik Flora) and athlete of the year (Kikkan Randall). In the last five years APU has become the dominant club in United States cross country skiing.
APU hosted it’s second annual fundraiser on Tuesday night, with a live and silent auction, celebrating the 2010/2011 race season. On May 12, APU will continue its fundraising efforts with an online auction. Start bidding today on a Adidas German National Team training jacket from Stefanie Boehler, Atomic 2011 World Cup Race Skate Skis, or a autographed 2011 World Championships relay bib signed by Kikkan, Holly, Sadie, and Lars. Other items include unique Alaskan experiences such as a Halibut fishing charter out of Seward, Alaska.
The online auction will run for one week, starting Wednesday May 12th.
Your financial support allows the APU Nordic Ski Team to continue advancing the level of skiing in our country.
