Training Saturday-Sunday February 24th and 25th and Super G at Mammoth

We plan to train this week end both Saturday and Sunday at Mountain High. The mountain made snow and is making snow. It also might snow tomorrow night and next Tuesday, so there is a possibility the season will be extended. Please come up and let’s enjoy the mountain a little longer. We don’t know if there will be gates, it is up to the snow, at present is difficult to say.

U10-U12 SG and U10 GS at Mammoth on March 2 to 4. Please remember that if you want to attend these races at Mammoth the registration closes this Sunday (the 25th) at 5 pm. After there will be an extra charge.

U12 only: YOU MUST register for the Training Run on Friday March 2nd, and actually do it. No training run no race.

There is no training run for U10.  U10 will run a GS race.

Gear: U12 can race with GS ski, they DO NOT NEED SG ski.

Daniel will be the Coach for TMH at Mammoth.

Hope to see you this week end.

Race at Snow Summit Sunday February 18th 2018

There will be a open Race at Snow Summit this Sunday, February 18th.

Race registration will be at the Snow Summit Race Room in Tyndll House (next to Bear Lodge, close to the locker room)  from 7.30 to 9.30.  Inspection will open at 8.30, so please try to complete registration by 8 so we can inspect the courses together with all the kids. I plan to go up with first chair at 8.30 am.

They will set two course on Miracle Mile (red and Blue course). Each athlete will run once on the blue and once on the red course, the combined times will be the scored time.

Parents, you can see the arrival on Miracle Mile without skiing, great spot to get picture and videos.

Please make sure to return the bib at the end of the race.

I will be up with Francesca, and help our kids.

It is a great occasion to have a first not challenging race experience, and to have fun with our friend at Snow Summit.

Hope to see you on Sunday.

Coach Ali says:

Hi everyone, you can view and download all the pictures from Snow Summit’s Slalom race from the link below. These pics should be good for small prints, if you like me to email you the full resolution of any pic, please send me the picture id number (you can find the number under info button). I am also including some pics from Snow Summit’s top racers so your kids can see their stand and style against other kids. Let me know if you have problem viewing and downloading the photos.

Best,

Ali
