As we close out this year I wanted to reach out about two things, the athlete showcase during the Stratton NYE Fireworks that highlights our program and the Stevek Mogul Challenge.
Athlete Showcase - 21 Jump Salute
This is a tradition that started 15 years ago to honor Steven G Kenney otherwise known as "Stevek". He was a pioneer of our strong seasonal programs at Stratton and was the leader of the Allegro/Freestyle program at Stratton for over 30 years. We build a jump at the base of Suntanner and have athletes jump and showcase their talent during the torchlight and fireworks. We are asking the Freeski Comp Team, B Team & A Team to take part because it's advanced nature. Training at 7:00pm for one hour, please stage at ski school and DO NOT approach the jump without coaches supervision. The show will start at 8:30 with torchlight, jumping then fireworks.
Stevek Mogul Challenge
As a member of the B Team & Allegro program, we invite everyone to take part in the Stevek Mogul Challenge. This is an event not to miss. This is a competition and while Allegro is not a competitive program, we highly encourage all Allegro athletes to try this great event! This event is a US Ski & Snowboard sanctioned event, hosted by Stratton Winter Sports Club.
