Sisters to host ski championships
Last updated 2/7/2023 at Noon
The Sisters alpine ski race team will host the 2023 OISRA (Oregon Interscholastic Ski Racing Association) State Championships at Hoodoo this year. This is the first time in over two decades that Hoodoo has hosted the championship alpine ski race.
The race will be the first weekend in March. Wednesday March 1, will be a warm-up/travel day. Racing will be held on March 2-3. Racers and families will be staying locally in Sisters throughout the weekend.
Many of the racers that are part of the ski team this year are very excited for the love and inclusivity that the team brings.
“Ski racing is a technical sport but we would not be able to do it without the team and the amazing support we give one another,” said Charlotte Seymour.
This year’s Sisters alpine race team is the largest it has ever been in Outlaws history. The team has a total of 33 racers competing.
“Even though our team is bigger than it has ever been, we have all grown so much closer. Everyone is so supportive of each other,” said Presley Adlet.
Not only do the Outlaws have a variety of capable athletes, they also have an outstanding coaching staff, including head coaches Gabe Chladek and Rima Givot, who are assisted by Natalie Grummer and Ann Brewer.
“Coach Gabe” and “Coach Rima” have been coaching the Sisters team for a total of six years.
“The team will be very competitive this year due to the fact that we have a lot of experienced racers returning,” said Chladek.
Volunteers are needed to assist with hosting the championship ski race at Hoodoo. Anyone interested in volunteering for Hoodoo during the state ski race, or in sponsoring the race, is asked to contact Spencer Raymond at [email protected]
