HANOVER — The Dartmouth Winter Carnival began on Friday with only the freestyle races completed as the slopes at Dartmouth Skiway proved to be too icy and dangerous for the giant slalom, which was postponed until Feb. 17.

The Big Green won the women’s 10-kilometer free as two Dartmouth skiers landed on the podium. The men’s 15K went to Vermont, though Colby’s Zane Fields easily took the gold by nearly 90 seconds. With the Catamounts’ second-place showing in the women’s race, they edged out the Big Green for the day with 248 points to 220 for the hosts and 202 for Colby in third.

Dartmouth’s Katharine Ogden was second in the women’s 10K in 30 minutes, 19.4 seconds, followed by teammate Lauren Jortberg in third (31:12.4). Vermont’s Lina Sutro won in 30:04.6.

Callan Deline led the Big Green in the men’s 15K in ninth place (45:49.3). Fields won in 43:32.5.

Vermont took the other two podium spots with three others finishing in the top 10 to amass 128 points, while Colby and Williams shared second with 105 and Dartmouth finished fourth with 88.

The carnival will continue on Saturday morning with the slalom races at the Dartmouth Skiway beginning at 9 a.m. and the 3x5K classical relay at Oak Hill slated to start at 10 a.m.
