Special Note: There has been a change to the schedule. Do to the overwhelming response to the tournament this year we need to modify how the 2nd and 3rd round will be handled so everyone has the opportunity to enjoy their skiing and we fit all the skiing into the available daylight. We are going to run the 2nd and 3rd round as a turn and burn. Therefore when you complete your 2nd round you will be immediately picked up and taken back to the starting point and immediately complete your 3rd round. As an alternative, we are considering running some slalom skiers on Sunday concurrent with trick and jump. If you are interested in considering this option please let Scott Bellefeuille or Dave Allen know of your interest. We will only do this if there is sufficient interest and it can be done practically.

2022 NESS to kick off this weekend with two tournaments

The biggest Northeast Slalom Series ever will kick off June 25 with two tournaments in one day at Avon and Wolfeboro.

The 2022 NESS season has expanded to seven states and 11 stops leading up to the Sept. 3 NESS finals at Pangaea, making it the largest schedule in the series’ history. The increased schedule will give more opportunities to more skiers, and create a larger cash-prize purse at the finals.

“The NESS has been a really great series, but it’s time to supercharge it,” said Dana Hinman, who has come on board this year as the series’ lead director. “This year’s cash-prize purse is definitely going to be an attention grabber.”

The registration fee is $25 for adults, while juniors are free.  To register, adults send $25 to the Old Farms Skiers (fiscal agent for NESS), via either PayPal (@oldfarmsskiers) or Venmo (@oldfarmsskiers). Juniors only need to email dana@hinmaninc.com. The adults will compete for a cash-prize, while juniors will compete for trophies.

The 2022 Northeast Slalom Series is sponsored by Hinman, Inc., h2oproshop, Avon Old Farm Skiers, and Cadillac Hill Carpentry, Radar Skis, and MacCallum’s Boathouse. More information at waterskitheeast.com.
