    Can't see where cubuffs.com did a preview article like they normally do, but the skiiers schedule shows them at the Alaska Anchorage Invitational from today through Thursday.

    1st news is in, and sounds like another great job by the top 2 of the men's cross country team!

    The event's schedule looks to be (I assume both men's and women's teams racing the specialties listed below each day):

    Freestyle Nordic (cross country)- Today
    Classic Nordic (cross country)- Tuesday
    Giant Slalom (Alpine) - Wednesday
    Slalom (Alpine) - Thursday

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska—The men’s Nordic duo of Rune Oedegaard and Mads Stroem went 1-2 for the sixth time in seven races this season and the top-ranked University of Colorado ski team is in second place, just eight points back of Utah after the first day here at the Seawolf Invitational.

    Good first day for the Buffs. Hopefully they can overtake Utah and finish with another invitational win.

    Interesting to see what this means overall points- wise. A strong performance by the Nordic men offset by the Nordic women (which per the article linked to in post #2 have members fighting illness and/ or injury) not having any finishers ahead of the Utes' top 3.

    Article on yesterday's part of the competition- http://www.cubuffs.com//ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=209908790 .

    ANCHOARAGE, Alaska – Mads Stroem and Rune Oedegaard again went 1-2 in the men’s classic race and the top-ranked University of Colorado ski team held onto second place Thursday here at the Seawolf Invitational, hosted by Alaska Anchorage.

    The Buffs have 438.5 points and are currently 28 points behind No. 3 Utah (466.5) with No. 5 New Mexico (430) making a surge to within 8.5 points of the Buffs, meaning just 36.5 points separate the top three teams with just the giant slalom races remaining. No. 2 Denver is in fourth place with 378 points while host and No. 9 Alaska Anchorage is right on DU’s heels with 369 points and No. 10 Montana State sits in sixth with 341.

    Sorry I forgot to keep up with this event. Here is the official cubuffs.com article about yesterday's giant slalom (the last races of the Seawolf Invitational)- http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=209910746 .

    "
    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The University of Colorado ski team logged only two top 10 finishes here in Thursday’s giant slalom races, not enough to rally the Buffaloes into a higher finish as CU finished second in the Alaska-Anchorage Seawolf Invitational.

    Utah entered the last of three days of competition here with a 32-point lead over the Buffs, and would add 30 points to that in winning by 62 overall with 629.5 points. Colorado held off a Denver charge to claim second with 567.5, with the Pioneers third (546) and New Mexico fourth (533).

    “It was a tough day on very difficult snow,” CU head coach Richard Rokos said. “Now, it was perfect snow, but (the kind) we didn't have a chance to ski or train on it all year. You don't get surfaces like this except at the World Cup and those who have skied on it at the World Cup are very comfortable with it; today, the two groups were distinguished – the ones who had and the ones who hadn’t. The first seven or eight guys that ski World Cup and train on it they were a second and a half ahead just based on experience.”
