Eastern Cup #2: Waterville Maine

Last night the team returned from a weekend trip to Waterville Maine for NENSA Eastern Cup #2. Overall the weekend was a great success and the energy was high in the van during our return drive. As with any group we had some good results and some not so good, but lessons were learned and […]

Welcome 2016!

Welcome to 2016!  The GMVS nordic team reconvened on campus last week after two weeks at home with family for the holidays. With some light sickness and fatigue after a big volume week the group was a little spread out to start but going into our second week we’re dialed in and ready to go. […]

Chasing Winter

This week brings the final days of school before the crew heads home for two weeks of holiday break. Since our return from West Yellowstone we’ve been chasing winter, mostly in the form of driving to Rikert Nordic Center, in Ripton VT. We’re luckier than most in that we do have a place with a […]

West Yellowstone Ski Festival: Week 2

The week of Thanksgiving prompts an annual migration of skiers to West Yellowstone. While we had the trails almost to ourselves last week, this week we found ourselves sharing with the masses. Luckily the organizers do an excellent job with grooming and crowd management so there’s plenty of training space for everyone.  Friday was the […]

Loving West

Our first week continues to be awesome. This morning (Saturday) we woke to chilly subzero temperatures and fresh flakes coming down. The younger crew took the first training session off and did an extra study hall session instead. The older gang went for an easy classic ski on their own and are just now arriving […]

We found winter!

While it’s still unseasonably warm back in Vermont, the GMVS Nordic Gumbies have found winter! We arrived in West Yellowstone Tuesday evening and immediately went for a ski (in the dark). The trails here are in great shape and with the continued snow showers we’ve been getting they’re only improving.  Gumby and Kat took an […]

Whiteface Adventuring

This morning we woke up to another perfect morning, albeit a bit colder at 18F for our morning run and bungee routine. After breakfast and packing our bags we jumped in the van and headed to Wilmington where we found our trailhead. The plan for the day was a long, easy distance workout and there […]

Lake Placid!

At the end of our first full day here in Lake Placid the crew seems tired but happy. Today featured a morning workout before breakfast to wake our bodies up and prepare for the coming day. We began with a short jog followed by some light bungee work and core.  The crew on our morning […]

A Perfect Fall Weekend

Columbus Day weekend was absolutely gorgeous here in Vermont and was the perfect sendoff for Lisa, our guest Italian biathlete. She spent a fun-filled three weeks with GMVS and was a great addition to our team during our stay. This last weekend she jumped into the first of two US Biathlon trials races in Jericho […]

Back in the Valley

Author: Kat Fall is here and winter won’t be far behind! This morning we had a good frost on campus and the forecast shows a week of consistently cooler days heading our way. These last two weeks have been busy. Garrott joined us on Monday, September 21, our first day back after our trip. Our […]
