Big Mountain Skiing Update 3/17-3/19


Congrats to all of you that competed at Abasin, I saw some really great moments from every competitor.  Even though I was not coaching, I was able to watch everybody's runs.

Rolling into this weekend, we have a slight conflict with the Breck National.  This event will drain a fair amount of our coaching resources to support the athletes competing, but we'll still offer some training on Saturday and Sunday for those that want to make the trip to Breck on Saturday and Sunday.


3/16 - No Training
3/17 - No Training (SMS/SHS no school)
3/18 - Breck 9AM-3PM - Meet Kieran & James outside of Ski Hill Grill, bottom of Peak 8
3/19 - Breck 9AM-2PM - Meet Kieran & James outside of Ski Hill Grill, bottom of Peak 8

Training for the rest of the season

The Breck National will mark the final competition of the year, with the exception of NorAms. Our last few weeks will be focused on having fun, and pushing ourselves a bit.  March and early April can be quite productive in terms of snowfall, and Abasin can really come alive in these last few weeks.

We'll continue doing some more mini comps, and we'll host our annual edit day.

At this point, our final day of training will be April 2nd.  Following that, I'd like to tentatively plan a Beach day on Sunday April 16th to wrap up the season!
