Ski camp at ABR, Ironwood Michigan, December 2017
In 2011 four Red Wing Cross Country runners (Phil Mitchell, Meyer Beckner, Hannah Rosenow and Emily Deck) asked Coach Dave Asp to teach them how to skate ski. We have since grown from four, to eight to more than forty skiers! In 2015 Red Wing Nordic became part of Red Wing Community Education and in 2017 joined the Wisconsin Nordic Ski League (WNSL) In February 2018 Red Wing Nordic skied in its first State meet!
We mourn the loss of our beloved Coach Dave Asp who left the ski trails of this earth on January 30, 2018. To learn more about Dave and the inspiration he left for many, you can read his book To the Start Line and Beyond: Chronicals of an Athlete/Cancer Patient.
