Winter Team First Practice update

Winter Teams practice update Saturday November 29th

We will have the first Teams practice of the year on Saturday November 29th. The practice is open to all team members. The practice will be on snow. This is the second year in a row that this practice is on snow. Our Snowmaking improvements are really paying off.

There will be a cookout at 12noon at the Discovery Ridge outside fireplace area. Please RSVP now via email or text 4349892541 and let us know if you plan to come to that cookout so we can prepare the right amount of food. cshepard@wintergreenresort.com

Wintergreen Team Jacket Update

Wintergreen Team Jacket Update

Freeride Jackets have arrived! We are in the process of adding the logo – those who pre-ordered will be contacted as soon as they are completed (remember there is a small additional charge for the logo addition- we will let you know as soon as finalized)

There are a couple jackets available for purchase – please contact Nicole Weiss for sizes left and to purchase.  (734) 476 3488 or nicolemweiss@comcast.net

Race Team / D-Team Jackets have NOT yet arrived.  For those that pre-ordered, we will contact you AS SOON as they arrive to arrange pick up.  We will offer pick up on your own at Freestyle in Charlottesville or pick up at Wintergreen on a specific date.  More details to come.  These jackets have logos already and as soon as they arrive will be ready to go!

Team Accessories – will hopefully be arriving in the same shipment as the Race jackets.  If you ordered a race suit, gloves or pants at the same time as the jackets – you will be updated individually on your order status.  We hope all items arrive together but will keep each family that ordered updated accordingly!  There are no extras available for the accessories.

If you did NOT pre-order and are interested in a jacket, there will be about 10 extra jackets available for sale.  We ordered the common sizes from the pre-orders and tried to include a variety of sizes.  The jackets are all youth size but do go up to size 18.  There are no extra adult size jackets.   We will not know for sure which sizes were sent for the “extras” until they arrive.  We cannot take pre-orders for those until they actually arrive.

When they do arrive, we will send everyone a message with the sizes available and they will be first come first serve to purchase.  You can call Freestyle to order (payment required to hold a jacket) or you can go to Freestyle to try on the jackets and purchase there.

Wintergreen Winter Teams registration open for Winter 2014-15

Winter Teams

It is time to sign-up and register for the Wintergreen Winter Teams for this coming season. Freeride, Race and Development teams. If you were on a team last year and you plan to participate this year there is not a tryout process and you can go to the online site and register and make payment for your team member for the 2014-15 winter season. If you are trying out this December or through the camp at Copper you should wait until after your tryout to register and make payment.

Follow this link for the online registration process

Once there here are some things to consider that might help with the process.

  1. Like most ecommerce sites you need a registered account to make a purchase. Also every item will need a name attached to it. This name is the child’s name not the purchaser/parent’s name so the child will have to have an account as well.
  2. Make sure you, your child or children each have an account and you know what the passwords are for yourself and each of your children. You should do this by clicking on the member lookup tool tab on the home page and going through the process to make sure everyone is listed. Also if someone is not listed and you need to create a new guest/member you can do this at this point and from this page. Once everyone is in the system you can go back to the home page, start selecting items and purchasing.
  3. Do not log in first. Select the items you want to purchase and attach a name to each item. If you only have one child you only enter a name next to the item. If you have multiple items and multiple children repeat the process for each.
  4. Once all of your items have a name attached click to proceed to checkout. This is where you need to log on as the purchaser with your name and password. Now you can enter info and make payment. Make sure you are logged on under your name by checking under the logon boxes on the upper right corner of the page before you enter card info and make payment.

 

If you follow these instructions the process should work. If it does not you can call the ski office at 434-325-8058 and the office staff will process the registration over the phone.

Please print and complete the attached forms and get them back to me via email or regular mail before participating in practice.
