U.S. LL Bean CrossCountry Championships

Bridger Ski Foundation Nordic skiers began the year at the 2020 U.S. Senior National Championships in Michigan, with two Elite skiers and four juniors competing.


Elite skier Erika Flowers, who the ski press likes to refer to as “semi-retired” from professional skiing, proved she’s anything but retired. BSF Nordic Program Director Andrew Morehouse said, “Erika Flowers had two top 6finishes (skate sprint and skate distance) and Andy Newell came back from a back injury to win the classic sprint qualifier and finish 9th overall.”


BSF’s junior skiers—Georgianna Fischer, Paige Coletta, Clara Wyatt, and Seth Wyatt—though battling some illnesses, got to experience skiing with the best in the country with both the top junior and professional skiers in attendance. Several BSF alums currently skiing on theNCAA circuit also posted strong results.
