NCAA Skiing Championships Heading To Dartmouth College In 2025

It's been a while since the last time the NCAA skiing championships were held in the Upper Valley area in New Hampshire, but it has been confirmed that the events will be headed for Dartmouth College at the end of the 2024-2025 ski competition season. This comes as part of a huge announcement of more than 450 selections of host sites for preliminary rounds and final sites for predetermined championships across all three NCAA divisions, with most being held from the 2022/23 through the 2025/26 seasons.

"Having the opportunity to bring the NCAA Championships back to the Upper Valley is exciting!" said Cami Thompson-Graves, the Dartmouth Director of Skiing and head coach of the women's Nordic team. "The 2003 championships was very successful and a huge motivation for our teams, and I expect that to be the case again in 2025."

This will be the third time that Dartmouth has hosted the championships, with the last time being in 2003. Though Dartmouth finished in 6th place for that series, they were able to finish as #1 when the school hosted back in 1958.

"We are thrilled that the NCAA Skiing Committee selected Dartmouth to host the 2025 NCAA Skiing Championships, and we are ready to work to put together a first-class experience for all participants," said Tiffani-Dawn Sykes, the Dartmouth Associate Athletics Director for Compliance who spearheaded the bid. "Hosting this event is a great opportunity to honor Dartmouth ski team alumni, showcase our current student-athletes on a national stage right here in the Upper Valley, and also serve as a recruiting tool for future Dartmouth skiers."

Though not officially confirmed, it could be safely assumed that the alpine events will take place at the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme Center, NH, which is north of Dartmouth College's hometown of Hanover, with the nordic events taking place at the Dartmouth Cross Country Ski Center, also in Hanover. These championship events were held at those venues in previous years.
