NENSA Eastern Cup Series Information

2018-19 Season

The Eastern Cup Series has been on the race calendar since the early years of NENSA, and is considered NENSA's signature race series, offering competition for BKL, Junior, Senior and Master skiers.  Eastern Cup events also serve as the Junior National Qualifier races for the New England JN Team.

US Ski and Snowboard Competitors earn National Ranking List ("NRL") points at all races in the series, and FIS license holders can earn FIS Points ("FIS") at designated events.  Although Eastern Cup events attract elite skiers, the series is not just for the very fastest cross-country ski racers.  Athletes of all speeds get to compete side-by-side with some of the nation’s best, and at select events, there is a masters wave that allows those over thirty to race together.  For more information about the Eastern Cup Series, contact Justin Beckwith.
