WILIAMSTOWN, Mass. — With the new rotating schedule in the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association, Williams College hosts a winter carnival in even-numbered years.

This Friday and Saturday, the 15 EISA schools will compete in Alpine events Friday and Saturday at Jiminy Peak in Hancock, Mass. The Nordic events will be contested at Prospect Mountain in Woodford, VT.

The Friday Alpine events at Jiminy Peak will be staged from 9 to 3 each day and the Nordic competitions will be held from 9 to noon

In addition to the athletic competitions being staged over the two days the Williams College Outing Club is sponsoring many "Williyimpics" events, which includes a fireworks show at 9:20 p.m. on Thursday at Poker Flats on Stetson Road.

The improving Eph teams will be hoping to take advantage of their knowledge of their home courses and conditions to continue to make progress.

Last weekend at the Dartmouth Carnival senior Alpine skier Shannon Campbellnotched a sixth place finish in the slalom, while the men's Nordic team benefitted from strong showings from two first years in the 20K Classic race.Jordan Fields finished 10th and Eli Hoenig came in 12th.

Another first year, Hannah Cole, led the Eph women's Nordic team with a 10th place finish in the 15K Classic race.

Junior Alpine racer Christoph Lentz moved up 9 spots on his final run in the slalom last Saturday to finish 20th and will look to improve on that finish on his home course at Jiminy Peak this weekend.
