December 4-28, 2017.

This is going to be a long post… please read ahead so that there are no surprises. I will update the blog when I get back.

Congratulations to ALL of the racers who skied in Canmore this past weekend!! What a great weekend of racing by everyone, sick, broken, cheering squad and healthy! I cannot thank enough, the parents who came along for a weekend 'off'! All of your hard work and assistance with everything made this weekend a breeze and just super awesome!!!


NEWS: Lodge update
ALL RACE TEAM BAGS ARE TO BE PUT AGAINST THE FARTHEST TWO TABLES IN THE LODGE. CHICKS START THIS WEEK AND WE HAVE TO SHARE THE LODGE!!!!! Burpies to those who don't comply.


Tuesday Dec 5: Classic skiing- let's hope that the bright warm days forecasted are wrong and going to be our normal winter cool… in the mean time- bring headlamps and water bottles for this workout. Double check your skis if you raced in Canmore- that all that Klister is off of your skis and wax up with a nice Blue wax.
