We are 3 weeks into the season, and mother nature has not backed off. We have had to cancel 2 early mornings in a row due to too much snow, not a bad problem to have. With all the snow, we have had to change plans to more free ski based coaching, as it has not been suitable to train in the gates (a reverse from last season). Once the weather dies down, our first priority will be to get the athletes training on their SL and GS skis in appropriate environments.
I would just like to say thank you to all the athletes, parents and coaches for such an amazing holiday period. By now you should have all received an email from your program head coach with a review of the school holiday period as well as the plan for the coming weekend.
The Amazing Race and Fundraiser were a great success, raising $26,000 towards the club, one of the biggest nights on record. We can attribute this to some great auction items an very generous families. Thank you all.
Let’s hope that mother nature keeps up the great start to the season with plenty of snow to carry us through to the end of the season.
