Jan 2-7, 2017 and Lander Invite

Hope all of you had a great rest and a good Holiday.

Week 3 Practices

First Week on Snow COLD but successful.

Our goal is to not only ski trails but to learn to ski efficiently.  Skiing with good technique makes the trails easier to handle and more fun.

Last Friday we learned how to glide wax our skis.  All skis no matter what type benefit from hot waxing.  1) it helps our skis glide.  2) protects the bottoms of our skis form daily wear. This is not the same as kick waxing.  Kick wax or grip wax is done at the ski trail to allow for those of us nor skiing on fish scale  or wax less skis to get up hills.


As of last Friday the  following skiers are missing vital items in their file with the LJHS office.  They will not be able to practice until these are up to date.  We as coaches will ask them to call parents and go home if they do show up to practice.  Please take a day and get these vital items taken care of. We will assume if you are missing everything that you are not a member of this team.  (This was the list on Friday before practice, you have have taken care of things all ready.)
