Teams Jacket order Due Today!

Wintergreen Race Team and Development Team Jacket Orders – due NOW!

The orders for our Wintergreen team jackets for next season are due immediately (like today)

I made an error in how the messages were sent to get orders so the deadline is unfortunately today!

Please reply with a yes or no – and a size – there will be a little room for going up or down in size once they arrive. The sizing is the same as the Spyder jackets (We will be switching to a Karbon jacket this year) Great look – great quality and better timelines and service.

They look basically the same – black jacket with red trim – wintergreen race team logo on the back so will blend in with the Spyder jackets great. This is a jacket we can stick with for years to come as the colors do not expire in three years like Spyder.
Email today with your size request!

If you have questions please contact Nicole Weiss at nicolemweiss@comcast.net or call 734 476 3488

Winter Teams Race team update

SARA U16 -U21 Championships

We have just heard that the U16-U21 race at Massanutten will be a one day race. There will be no racing on Saturday. They will try to run multiple runs on Sunday as it is supposed to get cold Saturday night and that should refreeze the snow making it a firmer race surface.

The new schedule for the weekend is attached. Revised Tentative Schedule for Champs Feb. 24

Please read over it and note Massanutten is not offering an option to register for the race on Sunday Morning. The last option to register and pay for the race is 4:30 pm Saturday afternoon. So for those of you who do not want to go to Massanutten Saturday afternoon to register we will have a representative at registration to pick up your bib and register you. We will then need to get a check form you on Sunday.

Please let me know if you are interested in having your bib picked up for you on Saturday cshepard@wintergreenresort.com

Winter Teams Update January 26th 2017

All Teams will have practice at Wintergreen this weekend Jan 28th and 29th

The Freeride team will have practice here and also a competition at Seven Springs PA

The D-team will have practice here, The D-team mid-season race has been postponed until next weekend February 4th-5th. We hope to have Eagle Swoop width back so we can hold that race.

The Race team will have practice here we will ski with SL skis both days. Coaches will focus on drills.

The hope is that snow making weather returns tonight. Snow making will be on going this weekend. This will make it tough to set gates as we lost a lot of snow this week.

Also it has been determined by our management group because of the weather forecast and where we are with snow making that Big Acorn will not be open for skiing by Feb 11th and 12th. Therefore we decided to let Sugar Mountain take that weekend to reschedule the Qualifying race. It is a tough Winter for snow making and a lot of thought was put into this decision. It is not easy to cancel all of the events this season but the reality of what we are facing is hard to ignore. Thank you for your understanding.
