The Board of Directors of Cross Country Alaska welcomes all members of Alaska’s ski community to attend the CCAK Spring Summit.

The Spring Summit will take place on Sunday, April 22 in Anchorage from 9 AM - 4 PM in the Veco Board Room in Carr-Gottstein Hall on the APU campus in Anchorage.

This will be an opportunity for coaches, parents, athletes, volunteers, and administrators to gather and share ideas about cross country ski racing in Alaska.

The Spring Summit will be a series of short (30 - 60 minutes) seminars, each focused on a specific topic. Lunch will be provided. The agenda will be posted on the CCAK website: on or about April 11.

The Board of Directors is soliciting topics for discussion at the Summit. If you are interested in submitting a topic for discussion or leading a seminar, please send an email to
Proposed topics include:
• evaluating and improving Besh Cup JO qualifier races
• Athlete development: training camps, state-wide races etc.
• Team Alaska Junior Olympic policies, logistics, and costs.
• Bidding for 2010 Senior Nationals/Olympic trials
• Race calendaring statewide for 2007-2008.

The CCAK Board of Directors (BOD) is currently soliciting nominations for new Directors. There are three (3) open Director positions this year. Each will be elected to a three year term.
The BOD is responsible for setting CCAK's course as it strives to fulfill its mission and vision. You may volunteer yourself, or nominate someone else you believe would be an asset to CCAK. Nominations may be made by emailing or in person at the Spring Summit.
