The Alpine skiing events will take place at Bristol Mountain while the Nordic events will be hosted at Harriet Hollister. Bristol Mountain and Harriet Hollister, both located in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, are hosting this event for the third time in four years.

 

The State Tournament begins Monday, February 24 with Alpine skiing starting at 10 am. Also at 10am, the first Nordic event will take place with the girls 7.5k individual race. On Tuesday, February 25 competition will begin at 10am and go throughout the day.

“Bristol Mountain is a great host; spectator viewing is terrific, and Section 5 is very happy to have the event,” said Dennis O’Brien, Alpine Coordinator.

“Harriet Hollister is a great course for the state meet. The Rochester area and Section 5 always do a great job of hosting the event,” said Bob Underwood, Nordic State Coordinator.
