We have a race on Tuesday at Elm Creek, all JV and Varsity skiers are expected to race.  New skiers are welcome, just once more, to come and will not race unless your coach thinks otherwise, be sure to ask coaches Monday.  Please sign up for the race here by Sunday night.

We will be having a WHOLE TEAM wax clinic on Monday at 3:10pm, every skier needs to attend. 

It is going to be VERY cold this week, please dress appropriately. This goes for the race as well. Make sure to wear layers under your uniform.
