Club Sport: Nordic Skiing

CC Nordic is in its fifth year as a club, and third year as a club sport. We've grown from three to 30 members, and from skiing no races to competing as a Division II club sport with the Rocky Mountain Conference!

One of our principles as a team is that we want Nordic to be accessible to everyone within our CC community: that means that we provide all of the gear, training, and financial support necessary for anyone to join the Nordic Ski Team -- no experience necessary.

Because of this, our team has a huge variety of experience and ability levels, from people who grew up on skis, to those who skied competitively in high school, and some who have never seen snow before. We have members from a huge variety of backgrounds, and everyone comes together to create the most enjoyable team and community atmosphere that we all keep coming back to.

However, being able to provide "no experience necessary" element has become increasingly difficult as our team experiences exponential growth. Our funding from the school covers only specific costs, such as race registration fees. We have no extra budget to allot to things such as wax, skis, trail passes, and transportation costs, all of which are currently covered by students.

We crowdfunded two years ago and were able to purchase 10 new sets of gear (skis, boots, and poles), which have allowed us to support this huge growth in membership -- Now, we'd love to increase our gear stash and keep fostering team development.

We appreciate any and all support, and are truly grateful to all those who give to this snow-loving, long-running, frisbee-throwing, dance-partying, and potluck-having team.

$10

Fund Wax

All of our team skis require waxing, and $10 will help us purchase enough wax to last for several sets of skis!

$25

Fund Waxing Brushes

Waxing is a several step process, and having the right tools is the best way to keep our skis in good shape and be able to use them for years to come.

$50

Fund a Waxing Iron

Waxing irons are necessary for us to wax our skis and keep them protected for long term use.

$100

Fund a New Pair of Boots

Boots are the first step in getting together ski gear -- sharing skis and having skis that might not be the perfect fit is a lot easier than having boots that don't fit!

$250

Fund a Pair of Skis and Poles

In an effort to be completely inclusive, we promise to provide all interested members the gear so they can try out skiing -- being able to increase our team stash of skis and poles would be hugely beneficial in sticking to our mission!

$350

Fund a Full Set of Gear

Financing gear is what makes nordic exclusive, and we want to overcome that -- every new set of gear (skis, poles, and boots) makes such a big difference.

$500

Fund Half a Race Weekend

Funding a race weekend makes the races more accessible to our whole team: costs include transportation, housing, food, and race registration fees, along with any ski rentals if necessary.

$1,000

Fund a Race Weekend

Funding an entire race weekend covers all of the team's food, transport, housing, race registration, and gear costs for the 15-30 team members that attend.

$5,000

Fund our Entire Season!

Funding our entire season includes covering the costs for all of our races, and giving us the funds to purchase enough gear that all team members can ski.
