The HS race schedule starts mid-December and runs through late February.  Races are typically on weekends. Race events are typically one technique, either freestyle or classic. Girls and boys race separately.  In many cases, JV and varsity race together.  Therefore, one race event will have 2-4 races for the HS skiers. Race distances range from 4 to 10 km over flat to rugged terrain. Most races are day trips, but a couple races will require overnight stays for the team.  LNST registration fees cover some lodging for the skiers. Parents will be needed to chaperone overnight trips and pay for some lodging. Race registration is covered by LNST.
