Our friends at Northwood School have big news! Congratulations Tommy!

From the Head of School, Michael Maher: 

Dear Alpine Students and Families,

I am writing to you today to announce that I have appointed Tommy Biesemeyer as Director of Alpine Skiing.  Tommy is well-known within the racing community and locally. He joins Northwood after a storied career with 15 years of alpine racing, training, and coaching experience. For those who do not know Tommy, he is a resident of Keene, and like our student-athletes, he began skiing at the age of three. He had his first race at age seven when he joined the New York Ski Education Foundation (NYSEF) program.  At age 12, Biesemeyer competed in J3 and J4 races but always had sights set on the U.S. Ski Team. A victory at the '03 Junior Olympics started him down that path, and he then made his World Cup debut in 2010 and the Olympic Team in 2018. 

As recently stated in October 2020 in the U.S. Ski & Snowboard, Tommy stepped away from racing to pursue new passions, which today brings him full circle to Northwood School, now miles from where he learned to ski at Whiteface Mountain.

Happy Spring Everyone,

Congratulations to all the athletes who raced in the spring series and projects the past few weekends and a huge thank you to the many coaches, parents, officials, and volunteers who make our races possible. Again, we could not have done it without you. We hope that everyone is loving the longer days and warmer temperatures.  There is still a lot of great skiing to be done, and for that reason HoliMont is hosting the 2nd Annual Parallel Proceeds of Spring, a Parallel Racing Event, April 11, 2021 open to all programs.
