NASA CUSSA/DJRC - A WINNING COMBINATION

NASA DENIED ACCESS TO CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN

Widely recognized as one of the state’s elite alpine ski racing programs, the Northwestern Alpine Ski Academy (NASA) has been denied access to Crystal Mountain, its home for 45 years and 42 of those years under current Program Director/Head Coach Dan Janowiak. This unfortunate event occurred in the late summer of 2018. Crystal Mountain’s decision to eliminate NASA and start its own ski club was very out of character and unnecessary. NASA believed that in a short amount of time, Crystal Mountain would recognize that their decision was crass and cruel to the 51 NASA athletes and their families and all those who had been loyal to Crystal Mountain for many decades.
As NASA promised its membership, the club reached out to Crystal Mountain in the spring of 2019 and requested a return to its home hill for the 2019-2020 season. Crystal Mountain said “they do not envision extending an invitation to other clubs to locate at Crystal Mountain.”

For an accurate account of “what happened”, please take the time to read Dan Janowiak’s letter to the NASA families from September 30, 2018. (CLICK HERE FOR LETTER)
