Nordic Skiing getting an early start in 2015


After what can be called a successful season in 2014-15, the Nipissing Lakers Nordic ski team is back at and ready to improve.

For the second straight year, the Lakers hosted the OUA Championships, bringing home some hardware and really showcasing their improving program. While they showed well on their home courses, when the team hit the road, they were just as impressive, claiming more medals, setting personal bests and really highlighting the hard work they have put in throughout the off-season.

This year, the program is hoping to match their previous efforts and continue to make a name for themselves on the national skiing stage.

Here are their training camp times for the 2015-16 season.
