HANOVER — The NCAA skiing championship is coming back to the Upper Valley.

The NCAA awarded Dartmouth College with 2024-25 national championship as part of a mass announcement of sites and dates on Wednesday. More than 450 selections for preliminary rounds and final sites were revealed for events beginning in two years and carrying through 2025-26 for all three NCAA divisions.

This will be the third time that Dartmouth has hosted the NCAA skiing finals and the first since 2003, when Utah charged past Vermont to claim the national title. Alpine races were held at the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme Center, while Nordic events took place at the Dartmouth Cross Country Ski Center at Oak Hill in Hanover.

The Big Green’s Bradley Wall won the men’s slalom national crown on his home slope that year. Dartmouth finished sixth as a team.

“Having the opportunity to bring the NCAA championships back to the Upper Valley is exciting,” said Cami Thompson-Graves, Dartmouth’s director of skiing and head coach of the women’s Nordic team. “The 2003 championships was very successful and a huge motivation for our teams, and I expect that to be the case again in 2025.”

This past winter, Dartmouth was sitting in eighth place after the first two days of the championships in Bozeman, Mont., when the final two days were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Big Green has finished in the top eight in every year dating back to 1998 and the top six 17 times in that span, topped by a national championship in 2007.
