Practice Updates - Fri. 1/15 & Mon. 1/18

Well sadly the snow we were hoping for has come in the form of slush. At least it'll all freeze again after this weekend and conditions will hopefully be better next week. See below for some updates. 

Three Rivers passes will be handed out next week. You can still ski on your own at Three Rivers Parks, just have a student id ready and say you're with Hopkins Nordic, if anyone asks. 

I will be posting next week's full schedule this weekend, but here's some updates as of now. 

Friday 1/15: No team practice today due to trail conditions. Skiing will be wet and slow on natural-snow today until they freeze up again. If you want, you can ski on your own at any of the man-made snow trails like Hyland or Elm Creek, which should be holding up better. Varsity or those with passes to Theo Wirth can ski there. We recommend skate skiing today as classic would be tough without Klister. 

Saturday 1/16: Varsity skiers check the training schedule. Coach Ditty will be putting a time out there where he'll be at Wirth with stuff to possibly classic ski. Bring skate skis/boots too, just in case. 

Monday 1/18: No team practice due to MLK Holiday. Three Rivers is not scheduling any team practices this day. Skiers are welcome to ski on their own at any park. 

Tuesday 1/19: We are going to cancel the JV2 race to give those skiers a little more time and experience before racing. All team practice will be at Baker National Golf Course from 3-5pm. 

More to come!
