The Harvard men's and women's alpine skiing teams faced New England's best collegiate ski teams Jan. 28 and 29 in the University of New Hampshire Winter Carnival at Attitash Mountain, N.H.
The result wasn't pretty.
Outmatched by the skiing powerhouses, some of whom own their own skiing mountains, the Harvard men and women combined to finish last in the 11-team competition.
Harvard finished with 119 points. First-place Vermont blew away the competition with 688 points, easily beating second-place Dartmouth by 98 points.
The weekend was split into two competitions, with the slalom race on Friday and the giant slalom (GS) on Saturday. Each Crimson team raced five skiers for both slalom and GS.
The racing started off Friday with the slalom races, which were scored based on two runs, each on a different course.
On the women's side, UVM turned in a dominating performance, taking first place with 91 points, handily beating second-place Middlebury by 11 points. UVM captured five out of the top seven places.
The Crimson women finished 11th out of the 11 qualifying teams. They posted only six points.
