Freestyle Comp 1.20-1.21.18

Friday, January 19, 2018

Hello Freestyle Family,

 

Nice job to everyone who competed last weekend at the Rail Jam.  We have a BIG weekend ahead of us! 

 

We will be re-constructing our mogul course on Lower Exhibition (right next to Charlie’s Chase).  Why is this exciting?

  1. We’ll have a full 2 jump competition course for our bump skiers
  2. We’ll be building a set of jumps with long, chopped landing pads for our freeride team to get back to advancing up the jump progression chart.  Any athlete who wants to go sideways or upside-down, should be ready to get a bunch of jumps in this weekend!

We need help building the course.  We simply need skiers to ski in the lines once they are set.  Swing by to help any time after 10AM on Saturday.  If everything goes as planned, we’ll be skiing and jumping on the course at 1PM on Saturday.

 

Freestyle Team Hoodie order:  Colleen Heikka has volunteered to organize our hoodie/apparel order this year.  Here is the Google Doc with the info https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeCqGJSJhf7HzCioNBPSph--uXpDq42Du10EEBj2z8dvSbvhQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

 

Upcoming events:  Our Freeride team’s next competition is at Mount Snow on 1/27 & 1/28.  Spots are limited at this point – so please try to register if you have not.    For the Mogul team, out Stratton meet is just around the corner.
