The Middlebury Alpine guys and girls participated in a tree planting and river restoration project in May in which they planted over 500 Willow shoots and contributed to the restoration of over 1000 ft of river bank on the New Haven River. Their efforts contributed to the goals of the larger restoration project to stabilize the stream bank to prevent erosion and contribute shade to the river. In future flood events the river will benefit as will the water quality in the stream in the future. Thanks team for your hard work. Plenty of digging and planting done.
Last night we brought the team together at Flatbread Pizza Co. to celebrate the season, present end of the year awards and thank some of the important people that help make what we do as a Middlebury Ski Team possible.
A special thanks went out to the staff at the Snow Bowl, including Peter Mackey, Ron Quesnel and John Nuceeder. Bob Prasch attended and we thanked him for his role as our faculty affiliate.
Andrew and Stever presented the following awards
Senior Awards to Hig Roberts, Liam Mulhern and Nick Bailey
MVP – Yina Moe-Lange and Hig Roberts
Bubba Kenney Award-Christoph Niederhauser
Randi Stromstad Award- Elle Gilbert

It’s been at LEAST 5 years since we put a serious hum on the ski room. Yesterday, the Alpine and Nordic teams got together on their hands and knees and scrubbed that ski room with more intensity than a fall workout. If team members aren’t in class today it’s because they inhaled so much wax dust and grime that they had to get it surgically removed today in order to breathe again.
Here’s to hoping these knuckleheads can keep it looking more like the “after” picture for more than just three days!
Thanks everyone for your help – the room looks unreal!
Tomorrow we travel to Park City to get a few days of prep before the NCAA Ski Championships hosted by the University of Utah.
