Thursday, January 25, 2018

Hi Freestyle Family!

 

Wow what a week.  First and foremost, huge congrats to Devin Logan, Emerson Smith and Caroline Claire for making the US Olympic Freestyle team.  Since they were young, all three truly dedicated themselves to progressing our sport.  We are super proud of their accomplishments and we are excited to watch them compete at the highest level in a few weeks.

 

Second, our Freeride team will be competing this weekend on Gulch.  Registration & Check-in will be at Carinthia starting around 7:30. The freeride coaches -Lane, Lex and Jill - will meet the team at Carinthia around 7:45 to herd our athletes up the hill for warm-ups.

 

Third, our Mogul Team – Jake, Brett, Aldan & T-bone have a big mogul contest coming up in two weeks at Stratton.  Registration opens Sunday night on www.easternfreestyle.org

 

Fourth, we have our Team Family Pot Luck Dinner this Saturday at the Ski Club.  Colleen has a google doc going.  It is here: 

 

Fifth, we will have a Slopestyle group training on Friday.  If interested, check with Nancy for details.

 

Sixth, please let me (Laff) know if anyone is interested in the USASA Halfpipe events on 2/10 and 2/11.   These are awesome events and we encourage participation – but are trying to get the coaches schedules set.

 

Lastly, while you’re on the hill this weekend, cruise on over to Gulch to check out the Slopestyle event and swing on over to Lower Exhibition to ski in some of the lower mogul course!
