Coach Terra Merry

Terra Merry first set foot on skis with her parents in the woods of Maine at the age of five. In high school, she joined the nordic ski team, learned skate technique and has been in love with the challenge of skiing ever since. As a coach, Ms. Merry is here to help you learn proper technique, build conditioning, get motivated to finish strong, take care of yourself, and learn to love the smell of snow.

Help us launch a XC Ski team at Portsmouth High School and Portsmouth Middle School .

We are committed to making Portsmouth Nordic Skiing accessible to all students, regardless of ability to purchase equipment; students with demonstrated financial need may borrow equipment. For the 2017-2018 season, returning students will need to purchase their own equipment, while new skiers will have priority in borrowing equipment.
