After the weather interfered last week, this might be the first time in the 2024 season that Wyoming High School skiing has a full weekend of competition. Of course, it’s all weather permitting, and if roads open up, it would allow teams to reach their destinations. Downhill skiers are trying to make their season debut at Laramie, while Nordic will compete for the fourth time this season at Pinedale. This is Week 5 of the prep skiing season in Wyoming.

It’s been nearly two months since Alpine skiers began practice in November, before the Thanksgiving holiday.
