December 19- Jan 9, 2016

Wow it has been 3 weeks of ski team! Even battling the crazy weather I feel we have gotten real work done.  Thank you Volunteer Coaches Doug Frick and Dan Lewis.  Your help has been huge!

We have spent the last 3 weeks learning how to ski again. We have been intentionally low key.  Our competition season starts after we get back from break.  Practices will still be geared toward learning and improving technique, they will also step up in intensity a bit.

Practices:
THERE ARE NO ORGANIZED PRACTICES THRU THE BREAK!  GO SKI WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY! For those of you who need kick wax.. By Monday 12-20-15 there will be a kit of kick waxes in the warming hut at Happy Jack.  Please use what you need and leave the kit for others to use.  3 waxes and a cork.  Blue wax for cold dry snow, Red wax for if blue is not sticking and older snow, Yellow wax for warm temps.  It is on the tubes.
