State skiing: Schedule for alpine and nordic races

The state skiing championships are Feb. 23-24 in Steamboat Springs. A complete schedule of events is below.

Start lists for every event are available here.

Thursday, Feb. 23

Athlete Welcoming Ceremony

On Thursday, immediately after the girls Nordic race, we will have a Team Welcoming Ceremony. All athletes are encouraged to participate.

The Ceremony will be in the Nordic finish arena at the Touring Center.

The organizing committee wants to make this a very interactive supportive event, where Alpine and Nordic athletes come together to cheer on their teammates. Team Banners have been made for the Welcoming Ceremony. We hope that banners will travel to the Alpine and Nordic races on Friday and be placed in the snow around race venues.

Note: There is very limited parking at Touring Center. Bus drivers will need to drop athletes off and return for pick up.
