Our program will begin December 27 with the Christmas camp. Camp will be four days ending December 30. Our primary focus will be to evaluate our athletes' skills, re-address USSA/CMAC skiing skills, practice these drills on the mountain and as well as in a GS course. Athletes should be prepared with skis for GS training unless we have some deep pow, in which case the fat skis are fine. One of the changes this year will be the opportunity to race GS on January 14 & 15 and SG on January 16. It is not mandatory to race all days but plan for Saturday with the option of Sunday and Monday. I will address this particular weekend at another time. If you have plans to be away for the holidays and not at camp, please let us know.
You will notice another opportunity to race SL on February 11 & 12. Again, we will race Saturday with the option to race Sunday as well. Finally, we will race in the Sallie McNabb cup March 11 to complete the season.
The following is a general schedule for the season:
In closing we want to welcome our returning athletes back to the program and extend an Advprep welcome to our new athletes. At this time we have 18 athletes. We are happy Cate will return as a coach and we will have Phoebe Brown coaching with us this season as well. We welcome Phoebe to the program.
We look forward to meeting all of you soon on the hill as the snow flies. Please keep active and fit in preparation for the season and try to get a few days in your boots before camp.
If you have questions, my personal email or cell number is fine.
