Dartmouth Opens Season

Hanover — The Big Green ski teams return to action for the 2019 season starting today at the St. Lawrence Carnival.

The event opens with the giant slalom at Whiteface today and concludes with a 10-kilometer Nordic classic at Mount Van Hoevenburg on Sunday.

The Big Green is coming off a third-place finish in the 2018 NCAA Championship, its best showing since a third-place finish in 2011.

Dartmouth graduated four of 12 skiers who were part of that team and returns plenty of talent to make a run at the national title this season.

The men’s alpine team is anchored by Switzerland native Tanguy Nef, who won the slalom title at the NCAA Championship a season ago. The women’s alpine team will be led by three-time slalom All-American Alexa Dloughy. Katharine Ogden leads the women’s Nordic team and is coming off wins in both the classical and freestyle events at the NCAA Championship meet last season.
