The 2018 Wisconsin Nordic Ski League State Meet is in the books and results for the weekend can be found here. The entire two days of skiing was also live-streamed on the Internet and is available for replay anytime. There is a link on the home page to find the streaming site.
Over 430 skiers participated in two days of ski racing at the Birkie Start Area near Cable WI. Individual and team awards were handed out in High School and Middle School divisions for both boys and girls. Despite some relatively cold temperatures, the skiers turned in some outstanding performances. As organizers, we want to thank all the volunteers who helped make the weekend a success.
Conference Meets were held this last week for two conferences; the Northern and Southern. The Central Conference was not able to hold their meet last night due to the lack of snow at the Reforestation Camp. The Southern Conference held their meet in conjunction with the Badger State Games using the 7K Freestyle race for this purpose. The Northern Conference held their meet in the Cables at the Birkie Start area near Cable. The top finishers in the High School Boys and Girls races have the opportunity to earn a top seed for the first race of the State Meet. Results can be found at the following links:
As you know, many ski events are run with volunteer help and the WNSL State Meet is no exception. Anyone can volunteer to assist at the race and earn money for their favorite ski team at $8 per hour worked. When you check-in on race day, you just need to let us know what team your support. This is a great opportunity to involve yourself in a great event and help support your favorite team. We also will work with you so that you still get to see your favorite skiers while they are racing.

The course for the 2018 high school races will undergo some significant changes from last year. The new course will incorporate two laps on separate courses – an A-loop (lap 1) an a B-loop. This will allow for the inclusion of some more difficult climbs that will be more challenging then the previous course and also reduce some congestion on the course when skiers on different laps overtake each other. It will still provide good opportunities for spectators to watch the the competition at multiple points on the course. You can view the course maps for both HS and MS events on the Spectator page. There is also a good map on how to get to the Birkie Start where all the races will be held.
