Training on Monday February 20th

On Monday 20th we will set a SG course on Conquest. This will help the kids going to Mammoth for the SG on March 3rd to get used to longer gs turn and higher speed.

If you have the ski you plan to use on that week end (at 12 they are not yet SG ski, the GS ski for next year will be perfect) bring them.

I will be the one on the slope setting so I could use as much parents help as possible.

We will meet at 8 am at the hut.

Two GS Races on Sunday 2/19/17

We will have two USSA GS races on Sunday, February 19 2017.

Both races will be run at West Resort, on Conquest run.

We will run first Race 1, run 1, followed by Race 2, run1.

We will reset and run Race 1, run 2, followed by Race 2, run 2.

The plan is to open inspection at 8.30.

To achieve this, we need to be able to start working to set ribbons, bamboo and gates as soon as possible.

A first crew will be at the resort at 7 am ready to go, booted, and ski in hand (no stop at the hut).

If you can make it this early please do, but is not mandatory.

The kids need to be at the hut at 7.45, so that at 8 am we can try to go up.

Please push them a little in the hut to get ready fast.

They should bring a quick lunch pack, and take the booth-bag up to the top of Conquest.

See you tomorrow.

Trainingon 3rd and 4th of February

On Saturday, February 3rd, coach Tom and coach Jessica will be at the mountain for training.

Meeting will be at the West hut at 8 am, so they can leave at 8.30 sharp.

With two coaches it extremely difficult to reconnect with kids arriving late, so it extremely important for the kids to be at the hut by 8.30.

On Sunday we will set GS gates at the East resort. We plan to stop training at 12. Coach on Sunday will be Matteo with parents supports. I will really appreciate if parents will help me set.

UPDATE SNOW SUMMIT RACES

After the Captain meeting it was confirmed that both Slalom race for the U10, U12 and U14 at Snow Summit will take place on Saturday , February 4th.

To purchase tickets for family members and athletes please go directly to the Snow Summit locker room.

We will meet outside the SoCal market place between 7.30 and 8 and distribute the bibs. We will take the first chair up and reach the course.

Please try to be there by 8 at the latest ready to ski, we would like to reach the course all together. Bring a pack lunch and water for the kids, it might get difficult to have lunch at the resort with the tight schedule associated with the two races.

On Sunday we will try to run GS at MH for the athletes that will return to Wrigthwood. If you stay in Snow Summit, you are likely to be able to join SS for training.

Training 14th and 15th of January

We will have training both on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th. Coach Jessica will be in charge. Please be at the hut by 8 am, so she can start early with a complete group.

It will be a big week end for the Mountain, so parking will fill up soon. Road are expected to be clear.

There will be no Gate Training, since most of the older kids will be in Snow Summit for the USSA Race.

Training will be center on drills for technique improvement.

Snow coverage is extremely good for our mountain, East might open.

Have fun.

No training on Sunday January 8th

Training was successful today, but a little challenging due to  rain and wind by the rain.  Some hard

core TMH kids decided to give the example.

On the other hand both Jessica and I think that tomorrow the conditions will not allow safe and good training on the mountain,

We decided to cancel tomorrow training, so no training on Sunday January 8.

If the snow improves there will be training next Saturday, with Coach Tom and Coach Jessica.

The rest of the team will be at Snow Summit for the U10/U12/U14 GS.

If you forgot to register, please do it now, there is time until Monday at 5 pm to have the discounted price.

Here is the link for the registration:  https://www.adminskiracing.com/
