It may be cold outside, but Holderness School’s athletics teams have enjoyed a white-hot start to the winter sports season, with the boys and girls varsity basketball teams going undefeated in tournament play and boys varsity hockey going undefeated in their early-season games.
The freeski season starts after Thanksgiving break and ends in early March. Practices at Loon Mountain occur Monday through Friday when school is in session, and prep school slopestyle competitions are held on Wednesdays in January and February throughout the Lakes Region.
Today, cross training is the name of the game, so athletes become familiar with all aspects of the sport. While our prep school competitions are limited to giant slalom and slopestyle, athletes also spend time learning about half pipe and snowboard cross events.
The mission of the varsity team is to help develop novice and intermediate athletes into strong, all-mountain and park skiers and riders with broad fundamental skills. Safety, fun, and learning are at the core of everything this team does.
