The MVC Skiing Championships will be held at 3 venues this year. Championships was tentatively schedule to begin on February 8th, with the Nordic Classical competition at Sugarloaf because the first day of Championship competition was schedule for February 9th, with the alpine Giant Slalom championships at Black Mountain. To accomodate the skimeister skiers who compete in both Nordic and alpine events, and the fact that it is not possible for those skiers to travel from Rumford to Kingfield on the same day, we are looking to move the February 9th Nordic races to the 8th as mentioned above.

The second day of competition is on February 12th, with the alpine slalom competition and Nordic freestyle pursuit both taking place at Titcomb Mountain in Farmington.

Also, please note that this year we will be awarding the top three individual finishers in alpine slalom, giant slalom, and combined and top three Nordic in the classical, freestyle, and pursuit.
