LET’S GO TEAM!

Saturdays MSTC Spring Launch was a huge success! At the end of the event we ended up with $8,800. Over the next day we received an additional $1,200 getting us all the way to our $10,000 goal! I’m extremely excited that we are able to put this toward our Coaching costs at Nationals and I can’t wait to see what next year’s event brings to the table. Thank you to all the families who contributed to the cause, I can’t possibly express how much we appreciate this as a team. YOU ROCK!

Up next is the Vermont open at Stratton this Fri, Sat and Sun. Please let me know if your athletes are attending. Event schedules are posted on the registration page and we will follow these times as a team through the weekend. Note that lift tickets are not included in this event but will be available for $10 each day or $20 for all three days.

First round of Nationals invitations go out today! Once they do please reference the National Rankings page on USASA’s website. Excited for another year of rad competitions and riding in Copper, CO.

There will be extra training this Thursday and Friday at Mount Snow as usual.

For athletes attending Nationals extra training is a great way to get prepared for our trip to Colorado. Extra training is available on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays. This is extra training and can be purchased for $70 a day. 6 and 12 packs are also available for $350 and $650. Please RSVP with Nancy and I at least 2 days ahead of time by emailing nlogan@mountsnow.com and ttwelves@mountsnow.com . Start times are directly associated with mountain operation times. For example, if it’s a holiday week and the lifts are spinning at 8am then we will stick to our normal drop off schedule at 8:15am. On normal midweek days the lifts don’t spin until 9am, therefore we run on a 1 hour delay, meaning drop off is at 9:15am. Pick up times are based upon participation and those times will be relayed to parents and athletes morning of at drop off. Special circumstances may cause for cancelations or delays in which case this information will be relayed as soon as possible via email to those who sign up ahead of time.

We will be doing Nationals group training the weekend of 3/21 and 3/22. For this weekend athletes attending nationals should come with a bag for the day just as they would at copper. Their bag should have plenty of water and snacks/lunch for the day, sunscreen, as well as other things they may need such as spare layers, googles, mittens, etc.

As always feel free to email me at ttwelves@mountsnow.com if you have any questions or concerns.

I really appreciate your time,

Tobin Twelves

Head Snowboard Coach
