First, I'd like to say thank you to everyone for getting the season started. We had a great first week! Below are a couple of updates this week followed by the week's practice schedule. 

Also, if you missed the parent info meeting, you can find the presentation here. 

  • There have been a few updates to the pods due to the number of skiers we've had register. We now have a Varsity, JV1 Boys, JV1 Girls, and a JV2 pod. Check out the changes and current pods here. Let me know if you have questions or if I've missed anything
  • Note about the 2 registrations: There is a part-time (3 days/week) and full-time registration (5-6 days/week). The part-time is for 7th & 8th graders only. However, 7th & 8th graders CAN do the full time and show up every day to practice. Let me know if you have questions at all and I'm happy to help. 
  • Please keep filling out your daily attendance for your pod each day before practice. The links are on the main page of our website here. 
  • We'll be passing out uniforms this week at the high school. We'll also be passing out a bib with a number and timing chip skiers need to wear at races over their uniforms. You will have the same bib all year long and can bring it home with you.
