The University of Denver enters the 2011 National Collegiate Men’s and Women’s Skiing Championships as the three-time defending champion after claiming its record 21st title at last year’s championships in Colorado. The Pioneers earned 785.5 team points, finishing more than 70 points ahead of the University of Colorado, Boulder, who claimed the second-place position. The University of New Mexico finished third at 677 team points.

Denver’s Antje Maempel claimed individual titles in both of the women’s Nordic events for the second year in a row, becoming only the second female skier in NCAA history to do so. Last year’s men’s Nordic titles were split between Colorado’s Matt Gelso, who claimed the 10-kilometer classical title, and Vermont’s Franz Bernstein, who won the 20-kilometer freestyle race.

On the Alpine side, giant slalom titles were won by Eva Huckova of the University of Utah and Leif Kristian Haugen of Denver. Andreas Adde claimed the men’s slalom individual title for the University of Alaska Anchorage while Malin Hemmingsson claimed her second consecutive women’s slalom title for New Mexico.
