Thank you! Warm Temps…
Nov 282010

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your families! We have one more week of practice before our first meet so we are going to get you all out on the snow, a lot, this week. Make sure you have all your equipment, boots, poles, skis, warm clothes, hats, gloves… We need a few more inches of snow to get on at Woodland Trails but we are able to get on snow this week both locally and at some groomed trails. M, T, Th and F will be normal practice times this week, Wednesday our practice time will be a little later as we were able to get a practice slot at Elm Creek on their man-made snow. The bus will load that day at 3:20, we can be on the snow from 4:15 to 5:45 and we will make the most of that time that we can. The bus should return to Elk River around 6:30. Four of our races are scheduled to be at Elm Creek this year so it is a good idea for the skiers to be familiar with the course in addition to the fact that we can get on good snow. Elm Creek charges $4 per skier for practices so if you can attend the later practice, please bring $4 on Monday or Tuesday if possible so the team can write one check. We also have a practice set up for next Monday at Elm Creek. If the weather forecast changes and we get additional snow before Monday, we may move that practice to Woodland Trails, as things look now though, we will be there at least twice for practice so if you want to bring in $8 for the two days, that may be easier.

If you have new skis, make sure you have been taking the time to get some base layers on those skis. You’ll be racing on them next week and we want them to be fast! Plan ahead because with so many of you on the team trying to wax at the same time, the night before a race is not going to be a very good time to wax, it will take you hours to get through. If you need to get into the wax room for waxing, talk to a coach to work out a good time to do that. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and make sure you have your homework done for tomorrow!
