Hi Mount Snow Freestyle Family,
We had another great weekend of training, where we put down some cruisers on Nitro, slid some rails on Gulch, and did a bunch of T-sets on a kicker built on Tumbleweed. With the snow this week, this weekend is shaping up to be awesome. The game plan = some all mountain skiing, hit some jumps on Nitro, and session some features on Gulch.
Competitions this weekend:
* The B Mogul Team: is at Okemo for the Central Region Opener. Paul Miles is heading to Okemo.
* The Freeride Team: Several team members are heading to Stratton on Sunday for a USASA Rail Jam. We will be sending a coach to Stratton on Sunday and will have details on Saturday.
* For those not competing: We will have groups on the hill all weekend.
Finalizing our calendar: I am finalizing our calendar this week and will be sending it out early next week.
Training on Christmas Eve: There is training scheduled for Saturday Christmas Eve. I know that many people do not spend Christmas Eve at Mount Snow. I’m trying to estimate the number of athletes who WILL be training on Christmas Eve so we can plan for the appropriate coach coverage. Can you please Reply to this message to let me know if you know you are or are not going to train on Christmas Eve?
Parent Meeting: We are looking to schedule our first parent meeting during the holiday break. The date is not yet set with the Ski Club yet, but I wanted to let everyone know that a meeting is currently being scheduled.
Keep dreaming of more snow!
Scott D. Lafferty
Head Coach, Mount Snow Freestyle Team
