Yesterday was our final day of competition at the NCAA Championships in Montana. The week ended with the men’s and women’s slalom races, and the alpine skiers came through for us in a big way. After our Nordic races on Friday, we had slipped to seventh place in the overall team standings, but all of our alpine skiers skied with no mistakes and pulled us back up to fifth overall at the end of the week.

The weather was also good for cleaning skis after the races:

I never get tired of the sight of the Chugach Mountains when descending into Anchorage. That's Eagle Glacier, APU's summer ski traing center in the middle of the picture:
