The University of Wyoming's Nordic ski program hasn't been a varsity sport since the early 1990s. That hasn't stopped UW from becoming a national power as a club sport; the men's and women's teams have won a combined nine United States Collegiate Ski Association national championships in the past seven years. Even with that success, UW coach Christi Boggs was surprised when she found out late last year that the Cowboys and Cowgirls had been selected to participate in the upcoming Winter World University Games, which begin Wednesday in Erzurum, Turkey.
