  • Nordic Skiing Varsity

    2016 - 2017
    Head Coach: Patrick Casey

    The Nordic program at Holderness School has a long tradition of producing world-class athletes. Alumni of the program include Olympians Charlie Kellogg and Carl Swensen and current Dartmouth College standout Fabian Stocek. 

    The coaching staff, led by former U.S. Nordic Team Coach Pat Casey, is also remarkable. Current coaches include Olympian Kristina Joder Casey and NENSA trustee Peter Hendel. Head of School Phil Peck, who was also a World Cup skier and Olympic coach, makes time to ski with the team when he can as well. 

    Members of the Holderness team compete on several levels, the best vying to make the Eastern team and represent our region in national competition. Other students, who are new to the sport, are taught both classical and skate techniques and learn to appreciate the glories of Nordic skiing through the beautiful New Hampshire winter. All students compete in the local Lakes Region league and the larger New Hampshire Nordic Coaches Series. A select few represent the school at the annual NEPSAC championships, and many compete in other regional events, notably the annual Stowe Derby.

    No matter the level, Holderness Nordic skiers have access on campus to 10 kilometers of groomed trails, several of which are lit for night skiing. In the off-season students have access to a fleet of roller skis, four ski ergs, a full weight room, and up-to-date cardio equipment. Many graduates go on to ski in Division I collegiate programs including Dartmouth, Colby, St. Lawrence, and Williams.
