The Bergkönig was created by Maria Stuber and Bryan Cook to support locally raised elite nordic ski racers. This year, it is being put on by local Waukesha athlete, Felicia Gesior, in conjunction with the Peak Nordic Ski team. Felicia represented the USA in the 2019 Beijing City Sprint, 2018 OPA Trip and 2016 U23 World Championships. She currently skis out of Bozeman, MT. Peak Nordic is a Southeastern Wisconsin based, non-profit organization that is working to get local kids competitively involved in cross country skiing. Peak Nordic has programs for Elementary School, Middle School, and High School athletes, with their training based out of Lapham Peak State Park. Felicia is a Peak Nordic Alumni and is involved with coaching the Peak Nordic summer training camps. Proceeds from the event will be deposited into a Bergkönig Scholarship Fund that will assist Felicia and other future generations of Wisconsin Skiers pursuing Olympic dreams after college.
