Laddies Loppet

Another great weekend of racing on the home course at the Laddies Loppet. The team once again putting down some solid results and great finishes. The high individual placings by the team have unofficially moved us in to second place overall among nearly 30 teams going in to the final race of the season!! Fantastic job everyone, proud of each and every one.  Weekend recap with links to results and more photos on skinnyski.com. Thanks Bruce for taking all the great photos.
