Seasonal Rentals

The Ute Mountaineer / Aspen Cross Country Center will offer seasonal rentals to juniors for the 2022-23 season. Priority will be given to Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club Nordic program participants. At the end of September Ute Mountaineer will be setting dates & times in October for AVSC juniors to reserve and try on equipment – separate dates will be set for each nordic program. Once the dates are set, AVSC will inform athletes. At this time we are not reserving equipment.

If you have any questions in the mean time please contact August Teague  for Team programming or Lauren Martinez for Bill Koch.

Team Uniforms

Bill Koch Youth Ski League: 
There is no uniform requirement for our Base Camp Programs (One Day, Two Day).

Racing Suit- All athletes who will race this winter need to purchase a racing suit through Podiumwear.  This includes all High School and National Comp Team athletes and most Devo Team athletes.  For your convenience, there are several uniform options available at various price points.  This will be your racing suit to keep, so put your name in it and take good care of it. Link and ordering options will close October 1 and a second order will occur in November .
 

Warm Up Jacket- All Team Program Athletes (Devo, High School, and National Comp) must have a team warm up jacket.  Jackets can be purchased through Podiumwear with October 1st being the first deadline and the second will occur in November.

Sizing: 

Sample items are available to try on at our Nordic Fit Night (AVSC Clubhouse, Sept 19th) and will remain available until the end of that week.  .  After Sept. 19th you will just need to guess.  Sizes are pretty true to normal.

Anyone looking to sell an old uniform should do so at the ski swap!
