Week of Feb. 8 - Race Signup, Schedule & Updates

It's going to be cold this week! We'll evaluate the weather all week and make decisions about having practice or not. Stay tuned to Remind for updates. 

Just a note on league rules about cold weather practice: 
  • Races get cancelled if the air temp is below -4F, this may impact Thursday's race. There is no real wind chill limit for races but past precedent has set it somewhere below -30F. 
  • For practices, the cutoff is an air temp below -18F. Again, no real set rule regarding wind chill but somewhere below -35F. 
Again these are the rules but we may change or cancel practice even if temps don't get that low. -18F is very cold!

The following are a few announcements and updates. 
  • Please remember to pay your Booster Fees for the year! The boosters help pay for coaches, wax, and new skis to rent out. Pay online here. 
  • See Coach Voss this week if you haven't received your Three Rivers ski passes.
  • Please remember to keep filling out the daily attendance for each day before practice. The forms are below:

All levels (Varsity, JV1, and JV2) must signup for the race on this form by TUESDAY AT 2pm. It's ok if you change your mind later and don't race but I need to see who's planning to race so I can sign you all up and make sure we don't go over skier number limits for Friday's JV1 race. 

PRACTICE SCHEDULE: Because of the cold this week, we need to minimize time standing around before practice, we will start skiing at the stated time so please arrive early to kick wax your skis or get ready.
