Development All Mountain 1.18-1.19.20

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

This past weekend:
All levels & ages, within all-mountain devo, focused on a common theme.  Each group incorporated the fundamental skill of outside to outside turning.  The overall objective is to be able to ski solely on the outside ski prior to, during, and after the ski turn during medium radius highly carved turns. The ability to ski on the outside ski is essential to optimally maintaining balance while engaging the skiers edge (Edging).  Varying, but common, activities and skills stations were used to test, practice, and challenge all our skiers.
Over the next few weekends, the group will continue to work on Mastering this core theme, while continuing to introduce additional new & challenging skills.
 
Plans for this weekend:
We are scheduled for our Fun Race event on Saturday (1/18).
It will take place on Charlie’s Chase Trail, in a Duel Giant Slalom (GS) course format.
The Fun Race will consist of one timed run for each child.  If a contestant falls or misses a gate they may go back up to the start and take a rerun.
Our goal is to make sure every competitor gets a good timed run.
Approximate start times will be available through your child's coach at the meeting area Saturday morning. 
Parents and friends may watch the race from outside the finish fence.
***Note:  The Development Program will not run on Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
 
As a general reminder, please be aware that groups leave promptly at 8:45.  Due to the holiday weekend, which is expected to result in increased crowd levels, plan accordingly as parking & traffic may cause delays.  If possible, please let your coach know if you will be delayed so they can coordinate a meeting/pick-up.
