We are living in an interesting time. Some of us are extremely busy and stressed while others are struggling to find something to do. Many people have reached a place of isolation and uncertainty surrounds all we do.
During this time we reflect upon many things, who we are, what we want, what is our place in the world, how do we keep moving forward against the tide of injustice, environmental degradation, global pandemic.
At University of Wyoming Nordic we think many of these answers can be found in learning, community, and movement. Opening our minds to all possibilities - academic, emotional, and athletic.
As we look towards a ski season that will look very different from ones we have experienced in the past Rachel & Christi have asked themselves how to create a space that honors the time in which we live, the learning that we need, the hope that we crave, and the sport that we love.
We have decided it looks like a learning community that invites anyone who is interested in being part of a community that swirls and coalesces, like snowflakes in a storm, around the environment, learning, social justice, training, technique, nutrition, connection, and love.
We have learned in this time that virtual engagement can mean connections across time and space in a way that we never imaged. We are currently training with people across the World and spanning the future, current, and past for UW Nordic. We also have been training with some new friends.
We want to expand this idea to a space that provides more connection - We want to engage our global community.
We will meet Mondays 7-8pm MST on Zoom. We will post ideas, videos, readings, etc. every week on this blog.
