Congratulations to Senior Hig Roberts for the win yesterday at the EISA Championships/NCAA Regional GS at the Middlebury Carnival.
Congratulations to the entire alpine team for a great season of racing and training. We have more training and racing left… but it is worth noting what a great group of guys an girls we have on the team. It was evident how tight this group is when it was clear that Hig had won. What a celebration in the finish coral! What a great day to be a Panther.
Congrats to Elle Gilbert for her best career finish in fourth. And Nick Bailey posted a 5th in the slalom which also was his best college career result.
This is the team ready to brave the elements and the upcoming storm at Williams/Jimminy Peak. In case we need some pushing the girls team will come to the rescue as they did on Sunday for the Roos family.
We have a handful of alpine team edition Middlebury Ski Team zip up hoodies available. They are made by Lori Ford Custom Outdoor Gear and are a great three season jacket or mid layer on a chilly day.
Jackets are $100 and available in small, medium, large and extra large. Proceeds go directly to alpine ski team athlete support. Photos are below.

At Dartmouth Skiway on Saturday current alpine team captains Hig Roberts ’14 and Katelyn Barclay ’15 met Sally Foss Haskell who was the women’s ski team captain in 1955. Sally was attending the Dartmouth Carnival watching her granddaughter Mardene Haskell who competes for Colby. In 1955 Sally competed in the 24th Middlebury Winter Carnival. Events back then were the slalom, downhill, cross country and ski jumping. Along with the ski events, the carnival also had a skiers banquet, an ice capades show as well as basketball and hockey games. On Thursday night of the carnival the Middlebury Cagers played RPI in basketball and on Friday the Middlebury Pucksters played Dartmouth in a hockey game, followed by the carnival ball which featured Ralph Marterle and his 17 piece band. The carnival program (courtesy of the Midd archive) gave me all of these details, however if I was a student at Middebury in February of 1955 it would have cost me 50 cents to purchase the carnival program.
