March 8-14, 2015

The biggest Junior Cross Country event in North America is returning to the ASC Training Center and Far West. This annual National Championships will draw 400+ of the very best 14-19 year old skiers for a week of hard fought competition on the challenging ASC Training Center courses. Through a tough qualifying process each of the 10 USSA divisions will bring their very best to the start line at ASCTC. This is truly a National Championships in every sense and the proving grounds for future Olympians.

A lot has been going on up here at the venue. We are doing everything we can to preserve what snow we have. The snow is thin with this warm weather but we are keeping snow on the trails!
