Starting them young...

Here's a great shot of a few of our local Methow Valley Nordic Junior skiers.
Methow Valley Nordic Junior Girls
Skiers for life!
These kids are the most important part of our sport.    From the hundreds of "skiers for life" that form the backbone of our Nordic skiing community come the handful of champions that climb onto the top step of the podium at championship events.

A big congratulations to the Washington State natives who are knocking the lights out at Sr Nationals this week!     They started here looking very much like these kids.
