In the Nordic events of last year's National Collegiate Men's and Women's Skiing Championships, performances by Mandy Kaempf of Alaska Anchorage and Rene Reisshauer of Denver seemed to mimic those of 2004 champions Sigrid Aas of Alaska Fairbanks and Henning Dybendal of Utah. Reminiscent of the performance by Aas, Kaempf swept the women's five-kilometer freestyle and 15-kilometer classical cross-country events, while Reisshauer's sweep of the men's 10-kilometer freestyle and 20-kilometer classical cross-country races lead the Pioneers to their 18th NCAA championship. Reisshauer turned in a very impressive performance in the 20-kilometer classical cross-country race, where he finished 51 seconds ahead of his closest competitor. Individual winners on the Alpine side included, Megan Hughes of Middlebury in the women's slalom and David Chodounsky of Dartmouth in the men's slalom. Vermont swept both the men's and women's giant slalom with Greg Hardy and Jamie Kingsbury winning their respective events.
