Junior Olympic Update March 7, 2009

Another sunny day in the Sierras and conditions at Auburn Ski Club are looking better than ever. As coaches are already busy testing skis for next week’s competition, most have smiles on their faces. “I don’t think I’ve ever been to a JO’s when conditions were this good,” Far West Coach Jeff Schloss said Friday. “There’s tons of snow but it’s well packed down and it’s not getting too warm. It’s going to get a little warmer but not hot like 2005.”

Interview with 2009 CNISSF State Champion Bernie Nelson

As a first-year Older Junior, Truckee local Bernie Nelson is determined to place well at this year’s Junior Olympics, especially because she is on the host team. After taking the State Championship crown last week at Auburn Ski Club, Nelson, a senior at Truckee High School, is one of the few athletes on the team who competed in the last Junior Olympics (’05) held at Auburn Ski Club. She recalls ’05 as her “best Junior Olympics — ever” and said she hopes to top them this year.

It was a spectacular day of racing at Kincaid Park. Hard tracks, perfectly groomed to the point you couldn’t even remember that a few days ago the stadium was a slush pond. It was amazing, the transformation. Great skiing on a variety of klister and even some teams using hard wax early in the day. The Alaskans totally dominated the day, winning every race EXCEPT for Far West taking the J2 Girls with Joanne Reid coming from behind for the win.
