The OISRA Nordic Division has cancelled competitions for the season due to safety concerns for skiers without the support of warming huts or similar facilities at local nordic ski areas. Given the safety considerations for all SMA nordic skiers and coaches to participate in-person, SMA Head Nordic Coach David Burke and Assistant Coach Kate O'Sullivan have pivoted and are working with returning SMA nordic skiers to offer virtual sessions to allow students to connect.
Students interested in learning more about alternate options to pursue Nordic skiing this winter can contact Coach Burke for more information.
