The Alpine Ski team looks to have yet another successful season. Coming off of ISL titles in 2019 and 2020, the team looks to replicate that success this year. Led by captains Anton Schmitt ‘23 and Danny Crowley ‘23, integral parts of those championships, it looks to be another successful season. The team was quite young last year, graduating just one senior, making a long depth chart for this year. As always, the biggest threat to that championship will probably be Middlesex, who nearly won in 2020. Coaches Feldman, Trautz, Rohrer, and Cushman believe that this team can accomplish this feat once again. In addition, Belmont Hill will host the NEPSAC Class A Alpine Skiing Championships at Shawnee Peak in February. The team finished 4th in slalom and 7th in giant slalom at the last event in 2020, with most of the other schools in the division having much better training facilities as they are from New Hampshire or Maine. Because the weather is not usually kind to this outdoor sport in December in Massachusetts, normal practice at Nashoba Valley will commence after Winter Break. In the meantime, the team has done a myriad of different workouts for dry-land training, including working in the weight room, cardio, and core. Everything points to another successful season for the Belmont Hill Alpine Ski team this year with the team hopefully winning some hardware.
