    Holderness Hosts Nordic Eastern Cup

    Emily Magnus
    The annual Cheri Walsh Eastern Cup occurred this year amid a string of snow storms that left us buried under 3 feet of beautiful powder! While this may have kept some spectators away, it didn't keep the skiers from enjoying the rigorous climbs and ripping downhills on the Holderness Nordic trails. Thanks to everyone who participated, cheered, coached, and supported this event! Here's a little video that catches the highlights of the day. Oh, and check out the Holderness Nordic Blog for more about this amazing program.
