Over 150 USA and Canadian ESTOS converged on Mt Tremblant, Quebec on March 9th for a 3-day weekend of skiing, snow boarding and socializing.

The group was fairly evenly split between our friends from the north and USA ESTOS. That said, there was a noticeable and welcome new contingent of teens & 20s, who all seemed to enjoy the weekend and were “tearing up the dance floor” at the traditional Saturday evening awards dinner/party thanks to our great DJ Stefan Skonberg who knew exactly what tunes to play. The evening ended with some great folkdancing and sentimental Estonian songs.

Also on the itinerary this year was an apres-ski hospitality function hosted by Eesti Spordiliit USA (aka: EAAA - Estonian American Amateur Athletes). The private Library Room at Sommet Des Neiges hotel was packed with ESTOS who had a 3 hour opportunity to mingle and make new friends.

The traditional ski race which took place at 10am on Saturday morning was greeted by - 29 C temperature and strong winds. Despite the frigid weather, 60 of the 72 registered racers braved the harsh climate with several experiencing mild frost-bite. The Mt Tremblant race coordinators  did not have a timing hut at the bottom of the race course and also fell victim to frostbite with one needing medical attention at the end of our 2-hour event.



The conditions unfortunately made it difficult for the 2 ski school employees to accurately record times - so regrettably, some of the results were not properly documented. To the few who raced and did not get timing results…I once again apologize for the unfortunate weather related “results malfunction” delivered by the Mt Tremblant race coordinator.

For the group of 60 racers we did get times for, here are Eesti Spordiliit sponsored trophy & medal recipients:

Along with my co-organizer Aini Maripuu, we would once again like to thank everyone who attended this year’s ESTO Ski event. Looking forward to an even larger group next year…maybe back to Mt Tremblant? In the meantime, hope to see you at one of the future Eesti Spordiliit events on the calendar below.
