Winter Training Trip

What is the Winter Training Trip?

The annual Winter Training Trip will take place this year on Friday, January 26th - Sunday, January 28th, 2024. This is an OPTIONAL trip for all skiers on the team.

This year's trip destination will be Cable/Hayward, WI where skiers will ski at The Birkie Trail >>. Skiers will stay at two Airbnbs houses in Cable, WI, with (1) boys and male chaperones and coaches in one and (2) girls and female coaches and chaperones in the other. The houses are a ten-minute drive apart. The ski trails are in Hayward, WI, which is a 30-minute drive from the houses.

As there is no dining hall, we request that parents will furnish the food! Sign-ups for food will be available soon.

The cost per skier will be determined early in the Nordic season.

Your main point of contact for the trip is Katie Brown. Email her at
