2017/2018 has been a great season! Let's celebrate all of the successes with the end of season banquet. All skiers will be recognized and special awards will be given. Parents and skiers don't want to miss this fun evening!


If you haven't returned your uniform and gear, two opportunities are left:

Tuesday, Feb 27th--At the end of season banquet. Uniforms must be returned clean on this day (When washing uniforms, please LINE DRY.) All skiers who have returned their uniforms prior to, or on this date, will be eligible for special prizes!
Tuesday, March 20th at 2 PM – After Spring Break – In the West Ski Room – Uniforms must be returned clean on this day.  (When washing uniforms, please line dry.)  Also, this will be the last opportunity for skiers to remove their personal gear from the ski room at the end of the season.

If there is a special case for a skier to keep their gear after March 20th, the skier will need to give Coach Anson a written note advising what they are holding onto and when it will be returned. Fines slips will be going out for any uniforms and loaner skis not returned by March 20th without a written note.

Tour of Anchorage - West Aid Station-Please help!
The Tour will be Sunday, March 4th. The high school teams each have an aid station along the course. This is a fund raiser for the team but it also helps out the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage which does SO much to support the high school ski teams and local nordic skiing.

West's station is at Westchester Lagoon. We are looking for parents and skiers to volunteer at the aid station. We will have 2 shifts: 8:45 to 11:15 AM and 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. Please contact Nancy Martin at if you can
