Last week of Regular Season Practices and Races

We are heading into our last week of regular season practice and races. Due to this weekends frigid cold we will race on Monday, Feb 15th at the Range. This will be a classic race with the girls starting first at 3:30. We welcome any help from parents with waxing or timing!

The weather is throwing another curve ball at us this week. We will have to see what happens Tuesday into Wednesday. We are going to plan on skiing Tuesday-Thursday at Sleepy and waxing Friday at CVU for our last race on Saturday, Feb 20. I will update the webpage with practice and race details as they become available

Waxing details for Monday

If you can clean your kick zones and glide wax classic skis at home please do so with CH 6. If you can, please put binder on your kick zones. If not, please leave them in the wax room before noon on Monday.

The coaches will be in the wax room on Monday at noon to add binder to as many skis as possible before leaving for the Range at 2:00. We have set up the ski racks with signs- girls not glide waxed, girls glide waxed but no binder, boys not glide waxed, boys glide waxed but no binder. Please put your skis in the appropriate rack before noon on Monday.

ALL skis will go in the trailer by 2pm to go to the range!

Class dismissal on Monday is 1;45, bus leaves at 2
