North Tahoe High School students were able to take a trip out of the halls and onto the hills on Friday the 21st, to attend the US Nationals Ski Race. This race hosted big names like Travis Ganong, Julia Mancuso, and Ted Ligity who were all representing the US at the 2014 Sochi olympics.
We also had some great local talent, Garret Driller, and Francesca English, participate in the races throughout the multi-day events. NTHS students got to cheer on Garret as he "slayed" the GS against some of the greats in the sport.
