(Looking at the live results from the morning races, its showing the Buffs also with the winning skier (freshman FAUSA, Louis Gustav ), but for some reason the team didn't tweet about that. Don't know if it's a scoring error or social media omission??? Edit - Re what I just crossed out, looks like the OFFICIAL results show Mr. Fausa in 9th; still a good result for the freshman.)

Before I forget in this BUSY period for Buff sports (various sport teams are scheduled to compete in 4 different places tomorrow. Friday AND Saturday), wanted to mention the Alpine team is scheduled to finish up the action at the "RMISA Invitational At Utah", with (2) giant slaloms competitions scheduled to be run for each gender, with the women scheduled to ski tomorrow, and the men on Friday. All races are scheduled to be held at Park City. (I was curious, and it looks like they may avoid the bitter cold we in the Denver Metro area are supposed to face this weekend, as the predicted highs for Park City are 38 tomorrow and 35 for Friday.)

In this particular Invitational, the Buffs currently sit in 3rd out of the 6 teams competing after the Nordic group raced January 17th and 18th. (See posts #16 and 17 for more detail on the Nordic races from this Invite.) From the recap after those races, the scores are:
"
TEAM STANDINGS (Thru 4 of 8 events): 1. Utah 394; 2. Alaska Anchorage 319; 3. Colorado 288; 4. Montana State 262; 5. Alaska Fairbanks 218; 6. Denver 203.

Looks like they moved up the start for this morning's runs. The top 30 women have already completed their 1st runs, and looks like the best start for the Buff Alpine women this year, with 3 in the top 7 and the 4th in 15th. Hope the 2nd run also goes well!
(2nd run scheduled for a 10:15 start.)

Unofficially, looks like a great start to the next 2 days of races, as freshman Cassidy Gray is showing as the winner (in only her 3rd outing as a Buff) in the 1st competition today, with teammates close behind in 4th and 8th.

New link for the 2nd competition today, scheduled to start at 12:15 - https://www.live-timing.com/race2.php?r=219681&USA=n

Oh well, it looks like the 2nd competition today didn't go well for the Buffs. Unofficially, for the 1st time I can remember, not one Buff skier made it through to the finish (1 didn't start this afternoon's competition, 3 didn't finish the 1st run and the same number couldn't complete the 2nd run).

Looks like conditions may have been tougher overall, as only 32 skiers finished in the 2nd competition vs. 46 this morning.

Article after today's races. (Sounds like a solid 1st competition for the men's alpine team, especially for the top 2 finishers, and then the 2nd scheduled competition was postponed due to weather.)

Today's the start of the Conference (RMISA) Championships, with both the men's and women's giant slaloms (GS) on tap. It will be an especially busy day for the men, as they are also racing a makeup giant slalom for the postponed one I noted in my last post. That makeup GS has just begun (per the live timings link available near the bottom of this post).
Edit - The makeup men's race will, in addition to counting towards individual points (which helps determine how good a starting position the various skiers might earn for the NCAA Championships), constitutes the end of the "RMISA Invitational at Utah". (The Buffs currently sit in 4th overall at that Invite, 10 points behind 3rd place Montana State, and a pretty hefty 59 points behind 2nd place Alaska- Anchorage.)

All of today's races, as well as tomorrow's slaloms, are at Park City, Utah.

Preview- https://cubuffs.com/news/2021/2/17/...or-thursday-ahead-of-rmisa-championships.aspx

"
PARK CITY, Utah – The postponed men's giant slalom race as part of the RMISA Invitational at Utah, originally scheduled to take place Friday, Feb. 12, has been rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 18 ahead of the RMISA Championships here at Park City Resort.

One of two scheduled men's GS races took place on Friday, Feb. 12, but the conditions worsened to the point the second race was deemed unsafe, so it was postponed. The new race will not be a FIS-U or USSA race, but will count as an official RMISA race and be counted in the team standings to close out the RMISA Invitational at Utah and for NCAA qualification, MVP and official Start lists maintained by the conference.

The make-up race will take place Thursday morning and will be followed by the women's GS and eventually the men's GS races that will be a part of the RMISA Championships that same afternoon. Additionally, the disciplines for the RMISA Championships will flip with GS races taking place Thursday and slalom races moving to Friday.

Those races will conclude the alpine portion of the RMISA schedule ahead of the NCAA Championships. Nordic teams will be in Utah next week to both close out the final regular season meet, the RMISA Invitational at Westminster/Soldier Hollow on Monday and Tuesday (Feb. 22-23) and compete in the RMISA Championships Friday and Saturday (Feb. 26-27), all scheduled for Soldier Hollow.

The NCAA Championships will take place in New Hampshire from March 10-13.

Article about yesterday's GOOD day of racing-

PARK CITY, Utah – The Colorado Buffaloes Ski Team is just two points out of the lead in second place after the first day of the 2021 RMISA Championships, with men's and women's giant slalom races taking place here at Park City Mountain Resort Thursday.

Stef Fleckenstein finished second in the women's race after holding the first run lead, and both senior Isabelle Fidjeland and sophomore Emma Hammergaard saved the day for the Buffs with tremendous second runs to put the Buffs into contention in the team race. In the men's race, freshman Louis Fausa and junior Filip Forejtek both finished in the top six to put the Buffs near the top of the leaderboard.

Earlier in the day, in a makeup GS race that closed out the RMISA Invitational at Utah, Forejtek took third place to enable the Buffs to pass Alaska Anchorage and finish third in that meet. In all, the Buffs racked up 12 top 20 finishes with five top six and two podium appearances in the three races.

In the RMISA Championships, the Buffs scored 89 points in the women's race and 74 in the men's race for a total of 163 on the day, just two points behind Westminster (165). The standings are tight with Montana State just nine points behind the Buffs with 154 points and host Utah sitting fourth with 146 points, 17 behind the Buffs and 19 out of the lead. Denver is in fifth place with 121 points.

Closing out the RMISA Invitational at Utah, the Buffs passed the Seawolves to finish third. Utah won that meet with 683.5 points followed by Montana State's total of 537 with CU taking third with 524.5, just ahead of UAA's total of 516.5. Denver was fifth with 440.5 points. Behind Forejtek's second place, the Buffs outscored UAA 71-44 in the race to take third. CU has now finished second in both the CU and DU Invitationals and now third in this meet.
...

RMISA INVITATIONAL AT UTAH TEAM STANDINGS (FINAL): 1. Utah 683.5; 2. Montana State 537; 3. Colorado 524.5; 4. Alaska Anchorage 516.5; 5. Denver 440.5; 6. Westminster 367; 7. Alaska Fairbanks 218; 8. Colorado Mountain 122.

In today's action, the Championships have already begun with the Alpine skiers racing their last scheduled races until the NCAA Championships, with slalom competitions.-

So far, the women have completed their 1st runs, and unofficially looks like a pretty solid start for the Buffs, with all 6 having recorded times (no DNF's), and the top 4 CU skiers in the top 16.

By the way, I'd been interested in why Canadian freshman Cassidy Gray, who was named one of CU Athletes of the Week last week after winning in her 1st collegiate giant slalom race, is not competing today and didn't race yesterday in Utah.

Via quick Google search, looks like she's been competing at the World Championships that are taking place right now in CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy. Per an article I found, she impressively earned a top 30 finish (23rd) out of bib #40 yesterday in the giant slalom in what I assume was her 1st time ever competing at the "main" (competing with Mikaela Shiffrin and other stars of the sport) World Championships.
(Article - https://alpinecanada.org/news/cassidy-gray-makes-her-mark-at-her-first-world-championships1)

Congrats to her!

1st, noticed I didn't post here the results from last Friday's races at the RMISA Championships. The Buffs had some nice results, but the depth wasn't as strong as Thursday, so they are now in 3rd place. On the big plus side, looks like the standings are VERY close, so the Buffs are still in it for the championships.

Note- at the bottom of the article, it discussed NCAA skiing in the other regions. From that, it looks like the NCAA Championships will be very west region-centric, as it sounds like Vermont and St. Lawrence are the only schools in other regions that are competing in both Nordic and alpine events. (Vermont is usually one of the top schools I think of from the East, so good they are still competing. Not an expert in any way, but the other school I remember as seeing as title and podium contenders from the non-western region is Dartmouth, but since I'd heard the Ivy League had cancelled all competition awhile ago for spring, knew they weren't in contention. (In the last completed NCAA Championships, in 2019, Vermont finished just ahead of the Buffs in 2nd, while Dartmouth was fourth.)

PARK CITY, Utah – The battle for the 2021 RMISA Championship will come down to the Nordic teams. The Colorado Buffaloes alpine ski team slipped one spot to third, but the standings remain tight after slalom races Friday here at Park City Mountain Resort.

The slalom, the most unpredictable discipline of college skiing, did take a toll on most teams Friday, and when the snow settled, the Buffs picked up 134 points to finish the alpine competition with 297 points in third place. Westminster leads the field with 320 points and Montana State is eight points ahead of the Buffs with 305. Behind the Buffs are Utah with 286 points and further back in fifth place is Denver with 228 points. Westminster does not field a Nordic team, but the Bobcats, Buffs and Utes will all be within 19 points of each other when the Nordic teams pick up the action next weekend at Soldier Hollow.

Junior Filip Forejtek finished second in the men's race and junior Stef Fleckenstein fourth in the women's race to pace the Buffs. Those were the only two top 10 finishes on the day, but no team was able to stockpile more than two skiers into the top nine of either race. Senior Isabelle Fidjeland was the next highest finisher on the women's side in 13th place while junior Olivia Gerrard took 26th. In men's action, juniors Max Bervy in 16th and Bobby Ryan in 18th were the other two team scorers.

The college alpine season is now over for a majority of the Buffs, as only three per gender can ski for the team at the NCAA Championships.
...

RMISA CHAMPIONSHIPS TEAM STANDINGS (Through 4 of 8 Races): 1. Westminster 320; 2. Montana State 305; 3. Colorado 297; 4. Utah 286; 5. Denver 228; 6. Alaska Anchorage 213; 7. Colorado Mountain 146.

CENTRAL REGION UPDATE—The teams in the Central Collegiate Ski Association, which compete in Nordic only, have two meets remaining ahead of NCAA Championships, starting with its conference championship this weekend and the NCAA Central Regional Championships Feb. 27-28. To date, four schools in the region have competed in the Northern Michigan Invitational and the Gitchi Games. Northern Michigan, Michigan Tech, St. Scholastica and Green Bay all competed and St. Cloud State and St. Olaf have not.

EASTERN REGION UPDATE—It appears that several teams in the east are not competing this season. To date, the EISA has completed the New Hampshire Alpine Carnival, the EISA Nordic Invitational at New Hampshire, the EISA Maine Nordic meet, the Woodstock Nordic meet, an alpine FIS-U at Burke Mountain and the UNH Nordic Carnival. Still ahead are the St. Lawrence Alpine carnival, the EISA Nordic meet in Vermont and the Boston College Alpine Carnival ahead of NCAA Championships. Teams that have competed thus far are Boston College (alpine), Colby College (Nordic), New Hampshire (both), Plymouth State (alpine), St. Lawrence (both) and Vermont (both). It's unclear which schools will compete in the remaining events.

Heading into today's last races of the Invite, looks like the Buffs are pretty solidly in 2nd place at the "RMISA Invitational at Westminster and Soldier Hollow", over 100 points behind leader Utah and ~60 points ahead of 3rd place DU.

MIDWAY, Utah – Sophomore Magnus Boee picked up where he left off earlier in the month, picking up his fifth straight win and sixth overall as the Colorado Buffaloes Ski Team competed in classic races here at the RMISA Invitational at Westminster and Soldier Hollow Monday.

Boee now has six wins and a fourth place in seven races this season, putting together one of the most dominant seasons in CU history. He enabled the Buffs to move from third into second in the meet standings, which began Feb. 8-9 with slalom races at Snowbird Ski Area. CU scored 92 points in the men's race, three behind Utah, and 69 in the women's race, third most in the field, to score 161 on the day and now have 444 points with two events remaining on Tuesday. Utah leads with 553 points. Third is Denver with 384.5, followed by Montana State (369) and Alaska Anchorage rounding out the top five.
...

UP NEXT: Nordic action continues Tuesday with the freestyle races that will close out this meet and thus the regular season, although half of the RMISA Championships are already complete on the alpine side. The Nordic teams remain in Utah all week and will compete in the conference championships Friday and Saturday.

Article after the last day of action of this Invite, where the Buffs end up comfortably in 2nd place -

Direct link - https://cubuffs.com/news/2021/2/23/skiing-buffs-finish-second-in-final-regular-season-meet.aspx

"
MIDWAY, Utah – Sophomore Magnus Boee picked up his seventh podium of the season, taking third in the freestyle race that closed out the RMISA Invitational at Westminster & Soldier Hollow here Tuesday with the Colorado Buffaloes Ski Team finishing a strong second in the team standings.

In a unique team start, where all the skiers from one team start at the same time and each team is staggered by two minutes, that perhaps gave CU's other men's skiers an advantage because they knew if they could stay with Boee, they'd finish near the top. Boee had won five straight and six of seven races entering Tuesday. Freshmen Oyvind Haugan and Will Koch did just that, as Haugan was just four-tenths behind Boee in fourth place and Koch finished in sixth, both having or coming close to their best finish of the season to date.

Junior Ezra Smith paced the women's team with a season-best fourth place finish and sophomore Anna-Maria Dietze earned her sixth top 10 on the season in eighth. Freshman Weronika Kaleta was pushing for a top 10 after the first lap but ended up not finishing the race. Senior Quinn Lehmkuhl was the Buffs third scorer in 14th place, one of the best finishes of her career.
...

In the end, the Utes put another overall impressive performance together in winning the meet with 762 points, 138 ahead of the Buffs second-place total of 614. The Buffs, in turn, were 127 ahead of third place Montana State (487) while Denver (477.5) and Alaska Anchorage (441) closed out the top five of the team standings.
...

UP NEXT: The Nordic teams will now take two days as the regular season is officially complete, an accomplishment in and of itself, and return Friday for the start of the RMISA Championships, also held here at Solider Hollow. The Buffs enter the conference championship meet in second place, but are first among teams that compete in Nordic competition.
...

RMISA INVITATIONAL AT WESTMINSTER & SOLDIER HOLLOW TEAM STANDINGS (FINAL): 1. Utah 553; 2. Colorado 444; 3. Denver 384.5; 4. Montana State 369; 5. Alaska Anchorage 318; 6. Westminster 300.5; 7. Colorado Mountain 128; 8. Alaska Fairbanks 118; 9. Wyoming 69.

Unofficially, looks like another individual win for Magnus Boee today!

(Results at http://summittiming.net/race_result...terval_start/results_with_splits_for_men.html)

Overall, looks like the Buff men finish in 2nd points-wise, with their next 3 in solid 11th, 13th and 14th place positions. (As usual this season, Utah shows GREAT depth for the point win, as their top 4 finish in the top 8, with their top guy the runner-up to Mr. Boee.)

From the results (http://summittiming.net/race_result...egionals_men_20_km_free_mass_start_210227.pdf and http://summittiming.net/race_result...ionals_women_15_km_free_mass_start_210227.pdf), looks like it was a good day for the Buffs, as all 6 scorers (3 each for the men's and women's races) finished in the top 11. (For scoring purposes, it will be all 6 in the top 10.) The Buffs won the men's race by 1 point, while the women finished in 3rd (only 2 points behind 2nd).

I believe these results solidified the team's 2nd place finish overall at the RMISA Championships! (The Utes, as they have in other meets this season, won once again, paced by their women's Nordic team once again being dominant with a 1, 2, 4 scoring finish, their same finish overall as in yesterday's race.)

And, individually, BIG congrats to Magnus Boee, who won once again in the men's race!!!
(The men's Nordic team is looking STRONG for the next few years if everyone sticks around. In addition to any other top athletes already at the program or committing over the next couple years, Mr. Boee is only a sophomore, and the next 2 finishers (who came in 4th and 11th) are freshmen.)

MIDWAY, Utah – Sophomore Magnus Boee earned a regional championship sweep by winning the freestyle race Saturday as the Colorado Buffaloes Ski Team finished in second place at the 72nd Annual RMISA Championships, hosted by Utah here at Solider Hollow.

Boee became the 17th skier and this is the 19th time in CU history a Buff has swept races at the RMISA Championships, and Boee thus won his second Individual Regional Championship in two days after also winning the classic race on Friday. Boee now has eight wins on the season, matching the CU record for a men's Nordic skier set by Mads Stroem in 2016, and he won his fourth freestyle race of the season, also matching the CU record.
...

WHAT IT MEANS: The Buffs again proved they are a solid team, finishing second for the fourth time in five meets this season, and in comfortable fashion. They did close the gap on Utah and will put together a team that will compete for an NCAA Championship in two weeks in New Hampshire. Utah will not be able to travel several skiers who posted high finishes on the season and while the Buffs depth is also solid and several Buffs that deserve to ski at the NCAA Championships will not be able to, it will still hurt Utah more than the Buffs. All teams are due to the NCAA early in the week and will be announced shortly after. Unfortunately, the season is done now for more than half the team, as only 12 Buffs will travel to Jackson and Francona, N.H., to compete for the Buffs at the NCAA Championships.

UP NEXT: The Buffs now await the NCAA Championships, set for March 10-13, 2021, in Francona and Jackson, N.H., with alpine events taking place at Cannon Mountain and Nordic in Jackson. Giant Slalom races will kick off the championship on Wednesday followed by Nordic classic races on Thursday, slalom races on Friday and the championship will close out with freestyle races on Saturday.
...

RMISA CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM STANDINGS (FINAL): 1. Utah 680; 2. Colorado 596; 3. Montana State 522; 4. Denver 464; 5. Alaska Anchorage 455; 6. Westminster 320; 7. Alaska Fairbanks 270; 8. Colorado Mountain 146; 9. Wyoming 138.
