Winter Trip

Uncategorized Comments Off

The packing list and some details were handed out at practice last night. If your skier did not bring that home, you can click on the link below for the copy.

We’ll post any updates on the site by the morning of December 26th if there are any changes.  The winter storm looks like it will have blown through by the time we leave so that is good for our travel.  If you are going to be on your way somewhere, please travel with care!  Enjoy the time with family and please call with any questions.  Coach K’s cell number is on the trip form so if you need to reach her, feel free (just not at 2:00am unless it is an emergency!)  ;-)

We will not have official practice tomorrow but you are expected to ski at some point.  Woodland’s will be groomed and looking good so have fun and explore – 90 + mins.  If you want to continue with classic – Elm Creek is tracked and would have good skiing, just don’t forget to pick up a ski pass there.  We will have some great classic tracks on the winter trip also, all locations are reporting great snow conditions with more snow projected in the coming days.

Stay healthy, eat well and enjoy time with your family.  Remember – 6:00am at the high school on the 27th!!

Parents – we are looking for a few crock pots to take with on the Winter Trip for some warm lunches. If you would be willing to share yours for a few days, please let a coach know. Thanks in advance!

We want to send a huge thank you out to all of our volunteers today.  Thank you to our course setters: Mitch, Phil, and Max, thank you to the groomers – we would not have been able to hold the race without your fine work, thank you to our food providers: Kay and Theresa, thank you to our course maintainers (wielding the handy shovel), fire keepers, photographers, wood providers, registrars, timers, water-hander-outers, sign holders, cheerers, supporters, racers, and all the other “ers” that I’m forgetting.  We had a great event, and it was thanks to all of you!  Two more inches of snow might have made it perfect, but it was pretty good even without it.  Thank you!

Results are posted now and have been sent to SkinnySki.  Photos will go up as soon as they are passed along.  Thanks for the great day!  We ended up with 93 registered and 91 raced, awesome!
