Hope all of you had a great rest and a good Holiday.
We had 2 really nice practices before Christmas. Fun and good work done. I feel like those skiers who took advantage of these practices are more comfortable on skis and ready to learn to race.

SNACKS/LUNCH- please no peanuts or peanut butter. We have a few kiddos wit severe allergies to avoid.
As in years past there will be a sign up going around for breakfast items for the trip. We will not let skiers buy snacks before the meet. We desire healthier options for good racing. Please watch for this sign up.
