Thank you!!!! :)
Hey A Team!
Holy cow you guys killed it last week at our Presidents week training camp. Some of you got six days of awesome training-some got two or three days of valuable snow time. Whatever amount of time on snow was huge and valuable. World Cup allowed us to work on so many aspects of our skiing. Even Beeline moguls were a great aid in working on line & form, arms and body positioning. Our Detour jump allowed us to perfect aerial tricks that might have been neglected throughout the competition season. Well done gang… So much progress... so much more to learn-but that’s the beauty of the sport, we get better without even knowing it sometimes. At other times we hit the wall and must regroup. Long story short we’ve had a great year on the Eastern competition tour and still a little more action to be had. 👍
This weekend we head to the Eastern championships at Killington. I have been told that the course is being built this week. That means that potentially we might have some good conditions and it will be fresh for us. We will wait and see. 😉 Megan, Adam and I will meet you guys in the upstairs of the Killington K1 lodge on Friday at 10:30am. Training starts at 11:00am. Lift tickets are available at the training center for $50 cash. Coaches will meet athletes on Saturday morning before the event at 7:45am at the K1 base lodge again. Any information pertaining to the Eastern Championships at Killington is available at…https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12uqjY0-h3SXcbhGBGYajE0jT0P63VKbOosBDoSdbooQ.
Saturday morning training goes from 8:30- 9:30am and the competition begins at 10:00am. It is the same schedule for Duals on Sunday. Good luck to all competitors!
I am very proud to announce that we have qualified seven (maybe eight!?) of our SWSC athletes for Junior Nationals at Snowbird.

That being said now it’s back onto our Eastern tour and after a week off- I hope everyone is super excited and ready for their chance to ski on our own World Cup run at Stratton.
