Freestyle Comp 12.16-12.17
Friday, December 15, 2017
We had an awesome training session last weekend and with a ton of snow this week, this weekend will be even better. There are 2 competitions this weekend as well as training at the mountain. I highly recommend that all rookie athletes NOT attend the events this weekend and instead continue to work their fundamentals at Mount Snow.
Events this weekend:
- Freeride Team: There is a USASA Rail Jam event on Sunday. Lane and Lex will head to Stratton for the Rail Jam.
- Mogul Team: The B Mogul Opener is this weekend. Laff will head to Okemo with the mogul team.
- There will be two coaches back at Mount Snow as well for those not competing. Please meet at the firepit at the normal times.
Competitions/ Memberships Overview: This season, the Freeride team will concentrate exclusively in the USASA Southern Vermont Series Slopestyle and Rail Jam (and Halfpipe if there is interest) events and our Mogul team will continue to compete in USSA events as normal.
