Flyer Buffs & 2nd Chance for Nordic Apparel

The MSHSL rules for masks limit skiers to buffs/masks that are "black, white, or beige or school colors. These may include only the school names and/or mascot". If you're looking for a buff that meets this criteria, we have a limited number of Flyer buffs available for sale. The buffs are $13 and can be purchased from the coaches at practice. Please make checks payable to: Flyer Nordic Ski Club.


We are also re-opening the Nordic Apparel Order. If you are interested in ordering, you can do so online. The storefront will close next Friday, January 15th. When the clothing items become available, coaches will distribute them at practice. If you prefer, you can have them shipped to you (for a fee) or you can put a note in the comments that you would like them to go to you, rather than your skier, and I'll contact you to work out a time to meet.

Let's Wax Skis!

What in the world is going on with MN weather? Let's make the best of it and enjoy the snow!

Jordan groomed the LF golf course tonight. It is ready for skiing! This is a unique opportunity for you to prepare for the season by working on technique and endurance, so you can enter the season more in shape and ready to improve. Of course, this is optional and not by any means mandatory.

With the start distance learning, we have an interesting situation. Tomorrow after school you are allowed to prep your personal skis in order to ski on your own. After tomorrow, once distance learning starts, out of season coaches are not allowed to contact athletes due to distance learning parameters. Because of this, waxing skis has to happen tomorrow. If you cannot wax your skis tomorrow, you could simply stop by and grab a scraper to take home and make due the best you can. With the short notice for everyone including coaches, we will not be handing out school skis. Sorry! 

Zean will be opening the wax shed after school at 3:15. Please email him, so he knows you are coming and can plan accordingly. (zbaker@lfalls.k12.mn.us)

2nd Annual Brewskis for New Skis

Our second annual Brewskis for New Skis is Saturday, September 26th, 2:00-10:00 pm at Starry Eyed Brewery.

This fundraising event is incredibly important to our program this year because we weren't able to work a parking lot at the Craft Fair this year. For over a decade we've been able to raise money parking cars and now we're without those essential dollars for bussing, food, and equipment.

Last year we made over $4000 at the Brewskis event. This money went directly into our program for our kids. We were able to buy 8 pairs of skis, a couple of pairs of boots and much needed new uniforms. 

We're cued up for another great event and have a list of generous sponsors, the FAB food trailer, food donations, and gift basket donations. What we really need now is volunteers on the day of the event. Please consider signing up for a two hour block of time to work in the food trailer or sell tickets.

Here's the link to add your name to the list of awesome skiers and ski families >>  SIGN ME UP!

State Meet 2020 Results & Photos

The meet was cold and windy, delayed by a day and delayed until later in the day to allow for temps to rise. The boys had a great day of skiing at Giants Ridge, led by Jackson's top 10 finish, and finished 12th in the state as a team.


Top 10 boys finishers. Jackson Grant, 10th place. Congratulations on a great season!
