1971 NCAA Skiing Championships
The 1971 NCAA Skiing Championships were contested at Terry Peak ski area in Lead, South Dakota, at the 18th annual NCAA-sanctioned ski tournament to determine the individual and team national champions of men's collegiate alpine, cross country skiing, and ski jumping in the United States.
|Location||Lead, South Dakota|
