Friday & Sunday UPDATES for WEEK #3
Jan 15, 2021, 9:44 am

There are only 3 rules on this team. 




In that order. 





Great racing by EVERY. SINGLE. TEAM. MEMBER. Yesterday!!  


A lot of great first time experiences, whether is was a first ski meet, ski racing in a new division, or just racing a 9.5k for the first time ever.  So many wonderful accomplishments, which made for a happy team and smiling coaches!


You'll find the results at  http://www.stevestiming.org/,  under the Race Results page there and on this site.  REsults may not be as quick as in past years, as Steve & Alicia are not actively timing the races this season.  Steve is handling all the start lists, while the host of the meet is doing the timing, and then submitting it to Steve to post online. 


THANK YOU to all who are putting on different hats as we plan and organize our 2021 ski meets! 


TEAMREACH is a new app the team is using this season.  The skiers will recieve the daily workout and ski tech videos via TeamReach. We will also use this communication method for last minute updates.

Parents, if you'd like to be in the group, please send Coach Johnson your cell phone number or email address.  We will no longer use the Remind app. 



These skiers were the recipients of "Captains Awards" from the Ely SKi Meet.  Captains Awards are a team tradition. After every ski meet, the Captains pick out skiers on our team, who have done something crazy, amazing, embarrassing, etc. at that ski meet.  The day after the race, these unknowing skiers are presented with some sort of prize.  Looks like Gatorade was the high priority sponsor of the week! ;) 

Lauryn - tripped a skier (twice) and still didn't beat her...

Mckenzie - A very dramatic crash at the finish line! 

Wren - ski equipment malfunction; her ski fell off during the race! 

NOah - ski racing with a bloody nose. 

Jakob - (not pictured) fell over sticks in the tracks. 


Allison Kate Photography (Danielle M -Skier Connor's StepMom) is back this season and taking beautiful race photos!  Check them out on our team Facebook Page, or her site here: 



It was fun to be back together in a competition setting, and we're moving on to the next race on Tuesday, Jan 19th. (now in Cloquet) 


MONDAY, JAN 18th - Ski practice "SKATE" for everyone 4-6 pm. There will be a ski practice bus on this day.  V / JV skiers bring your race Skate skis to the timing building between 3:30 - 4pm.  Our race wax techs will be waxing skis. :) Use your B skis, or find a pair of team skate skis to use at practice. 



TUESDAY, JAN 19TH : SKI MEET at Pine Valley in Cloquet. (THIS IS A CHANGE FROM THE SCHEDULED KORKKI NORDIC RACE)   Bus is loads ME at 9:30.  We will pick up all other skiers at the Super 8 in Eveleth. 

Spectators are allowed at this meet. Masks & Social distance protocols need to be in place. If you are driving your skier to ski meets this season, please

arrive at the venue around the same time as the bus.  Upon arrival, the kids ski their warm up with their groups - V/ JV/ JH. (Thanks!)

 NEW UPDATE from the MSHSL: 

Updated Nordic and Alpine Ski Mask/Face Coverings Information


The MSHSL learned this afternoon an additional exception has been added to the Mask/Face Covering Requirement language. This additional exception indicates flexibility around the wearing of masks/face coverings during the race portion of both Alpine and Nordic Skiing. Beginning today, the following statements should be applied to Alpine and Nordic Skiing.


  • Participants in Alpine and Nordic skiing must be masked at all times outdoors whenever 6 feet of social distancing cannot be observed.
  • In Alpine Skiing, participants should be masked at all times until they are in the starting gate. At this point, they are able to remove their mask/face covering if they so choose. Upon completion of the run, each participant should again be masked.
  • In Nordic Skiing, participants should be masked at all times until they arrive at the start line. At this time, they are able to remove their mask/face covering if they so choose. Upon crossing the finish line, participants should again be masked.
  • Recommended: Participants are encouraged to use neck gaiters or similar mask/face covering that can easily be moved from their face and then replaced after the completion of their competition.



When Covid 19 is done & gone, the first thing I will do is:

A. Never complain about going to school.
B. Hug my ski friends
C. Wash my buff (mask)
D. Give my parents a night alone.
E. Wax my skis for the 20/21 ski season.
F. All the above
