Freestyle Comp 12.9-12.10

Friday, December 8, 2017

Hi team,
 
We had an awesome weekend of on-snow training for our first weekend.  This weekend we plan to continue to cruise the mountain, get a bit more technical with our fundamentals, and get into the air.
 
For our Freeride team:  We will be concentrating on proper stance on our skis and proper takeoffs with our jumps.  We’ll still slide the boxes and rails, but it won’t be our concentration this weekend.  We need to make sure our foundation is strong first.
 
Freeride schedule:  You can find the USASA Southern Vermont Series schedule herehttps://www.usasa.org/index.php/regions/new-england/southern-vermont and I’ve pasted it below.
We plan to attend all Rail Jam and Slopestyle events as a team.  If there is interest, we will send coaches to Halfpipe events – but we’ll have to coordinate in advance.

For our Mogul team:  This weekend, the plan is to rebuild the rut line on Lower Exhibition, parallel to Charlies Chace.  We’ll also construct a mogul air in the line.  I’ll talk to everyone individually regarding the competition schedule.  The first meet for first year mogul skiers will be after the New Year, so there is time to plan and train for it accordingly.
 
First Parent Meeting:  We’re will be scheduling the first parent meeting shortly and will let you know as soon as we schedule it.
Looking
 
My Best,
-Scott
