We are a cohesive team-serving athletes from 6-18, from new skier to expert racer, all united around a common identity and pride in the Methow Valley Nordic Team.
We develop athletes who ski with excellent technique, continually improve, are recognized for reaching their own goals, and who take joy in celebrating the whole team’s success.
We provide opportunities for athletes to learn about competition and dealing with pressure, and we seek to provide individual and team-based competitive opportunities locally, regionally and nationally.
We support, celebrate, and retain well-trained, happy and satisfied coaches who are good teachers and mentors to our athletes.
We inspire the families of our athletes to be involved and, in cases where the athlete’s family cannot be involved, for athletes to feel welcomed and included.
We are a team that athletes want to stick with 1st grade through 12th.
We maintain a safe program.
We ensure that every athlete who wishes to ski can, regardless of his/her financial ability.
We ensure the program’s financial stability.
We are good community partners and inspire the community to take pride in the team.
We support, encourage, and celebrate the volunteers who help make our success possible.
We are an efficient and effective nonprofit organization, with a culture that is based in finding positive solutions and constructive problem-solving.
