We are a club-sponsored team that has seen its numbers grow in recent years to a high of 30 skiers. Based in Rhinelander, the Hodags have a handful of trail systems to train on, including the newly homologated course at C.A.V.O.C., as well as the Northwood Golf Course and Washburn Silent Sports Area. The team has some support from the Rhinelander School District as well.

Rhinelander hosts one of the largest scholastic races each season, the Hodag Challenge, with over 350 skiers skiing both days of the pursuit.
