The Methow Valley Nordic Team in Winthrop, Wash., is gearing up for the upcoming ski season with an online auction fundraiser. Methow Valley Nordic Team started over 25 years ago and continues to develop kids who love to Nordic ski. Famous alumni include Sadie and Erik Bjornsen and Brian Gregg.
With over 100 kids signed up for this year’s program and snow in the hills, Methow Valley Nordic Team is off to a strong start for the 2015-16 ski season! Dryland training for the Team has been taking place throughout November and a crew of skiers will head to Silver Star, B.C., for our annual Thanksgiving training camp. Competitions will begin in mid-December with some skiers focusing on qualifying for Junior Nationals to be held in Cable, Wis., in March and others aiming towards Biathlon trials in December where they hope to qualify for international biathlon races. Many other MVNT members will work on furthering their skiing skills and enjoying the snow.
Methow Valley Nordic Team annual online auction opens for bidding on Friday, Nov. 20 and will close on the 29th. The auction is at http://www.32auctions.com/MethowValleyNordic. Items range from “Ski Dreams” with athletes to clothing to packages. With something for everyone, this is a good way to kick off holiday shopping!
