2021 Sprints Recap

It was great to see you at the EMBK Sprints this weekend.  Sun, smiles and skiing – good times!  Thank you to parents who brought your skiers out for a fun race. Special thanks to all of our parent volunteers who came out to help with the many moving parts on this weekend and extra Covid safety needs. What a community!  We would like to send out a special thanks to Chris Li for his planning, race timing and results, and his team of timers.  Thanks to Jim Stock, our fearless leader, and our dedicated coaches.  Thanks to members of our Covid safety team (and especially to Jonathan Brenner and Erin Lake) for helping make this event safe and fun.  Shout out to all who brought us music, fun commentary, candy and helped us get bibs to and off our kids.  We can’t forget the planning crew for the event – Caitlin, Josh, Kris, Jonathan, Josie, Erica, Jim, Erin, and Chris.  Dee and Leona managed our registration.  Thanks to Josie for her leadership. We are grateful for our crowd and start managers and our doctors who volunteered their time.

Virtual Race for Snow 2021

Please consider participating in the Race For Snow which would be held as a virtual event over the week of February 7-13 of 2021. It is open to anyone anywhere, and we expect participants from all over New England. 

A group of high school skiers has organized the race for the past four years to raise money for 350 Mass, an organization fighting climate change. Climate change is a critically important issue to the ski community as our snow dwindles, and one which affects people everywhere. 

Information about the race can be found at our website here: https://theraceforsnow.wixsite.com/2020
Registration is open – Register HERE!
