The Ishpeming Ski
Club has formed a nordic ski team last year through Ishpeming
and Negaunee Public Schools, serving both middle school and high
school age groups. The team is a mix of students from Ishpeming
Public Schools and Negaunee Public Schools. Thirty-four
teens are participating in the program; all are competing in
cross-country skiing, some are
competing in nordic combined (cross-country skiing and ski
jumping). This is a 50% increase from last year!
With their new
race suits, jackets, and hats, the team is
not only improving their performance this second year,
but they look like a cohesive team as well. It has been great
to compete against the Marquette School team in a five race
schedule held on the area cross country courses in Marquette
County. The racers also have been attending other races around
the central division which includes Michigan, Wisconsin and
Minnesota. Good luck to our area skiers!
Ishpeming Ski Club is offering the following
ski jumping and cross-country skiing programs at Suicide
Hill for the 2017 ski season.
