Happy New Year!

Wow! Have you been on the hill this week? The conditions are constantly improving and if you look, you will see a sea of red streaking down the hills! Our racers are looking good and getting set to represent us well this season. It is going to be exciting!


As we are getting underway there are just a few important things to remember. The first day can seem a bit like a circus so here are some tips to help it go smoothly:

1) Be Early! The U12, U14, U16 and U18's will be starting at 8:45. That means they will be on their way to lift at 8:45.  U10's will be starting at 9am. If everyone is ready to go on time it keeps less clutter at the meeting spots and less time in the lift line.

2) Make sure that you have your Emergency contact and Authorization forms into Nikki. She is too busy to chase people.

3) For U10's - Group lists will be printed and placed and on the wall in the lunchroom area. On the sheet with your child's name will be a color, find the same colored flag at the meeting place - this is your child's group.

4) Make sure you attend the parent meetings. If you have any questions, this is where they will be answered.

5) Let us know what you can do to volunteer this season (managers, race volunteers etc). Keep in mind it takes everyone working together to have a successful season.

6) Lunch for all groups is 11:30 - 12:30. Make sure you are on time to meet your child. Our coaches need to eat too and they are required to stay on the hill until every child is picked up. 

7) Pick-up time is 3:00pm

New Years Camp Jan 2 - 6th - Get a leg up on the rest of the competition by enrolling in this lead up to programs starting. Focus will be on technical free-skiing. Groups that have already been assigned will be training together for this camp.
