I was first introduced to cross country skiing by my dad at age five. We would go into the woods at the end of the street every chance we got. That joy of skiing first given to me by my dad, must have been evident when I first joined NTSC in 2005. I was almost immediately recruited into the nordic ski school and to be the nordic director. I am delighted to find myself in the position of director again and I will try to share with you my joy of skiing should you join us on a cross country day trip. See you out there!
