Early season training in November consists of ski-bounding, core strength, hiking, running, and rollerskiing (we have some rollerskis to loan).
Our Junior Nordic programs consistently produces some of the top junior skiers in the region.
In 2013 GNA skiers received some significant honors: Jack and Tessa Schrupp were selected to the New England Regional Team and traveled to Fairbanks Alaska to represent the New England at the 2013 Junior Nationals.
