Cross Country Prep
Jack Broderson has been a great addition to the XC Prep Team this season. He manages to find positivity and fun in everything we do at Prep Team. Whether slogging up a hill in freezing temperatures or pushing himself out of his comfort zone on speedy downhills, Jack has smile on his face, as if every day at ski team is a new adventure. Never a complainer and eager to improve, he makes teaching fun and is an essential part of our team.

Alpine North Series
Dominic is new to SVSEF this year and has already impressed all the North Series coaches with his stellar attitude. After a big fall or when skiing something more challenging, Dominic never complains, he just quietly keeps working on his skiing. He is a great addition to any group because he supports his teammates and works hard every day. There have been a couple days when he has forgotten his equipment but that doesn’t stop Dominic from showing up the next day with a big smile. We love having Dominic on North Series and can’t wait to see how his skiing progresses throughout the season.
