Freeride team party tomorrow (Monday 12/29) at the Nature Foundation at 5pm.

Development Race Team Party at the Nature foundation Tuesday December 30th at 5pm

The races at Sugar have not been canceled as far as we know although the slopes the races are scheduled to be held on are not open for skiing as posted on the Sugar website. The weather forecast is for snowmaking temperatures to return Tuesday afternoon so we don’t see how these race can be successful. We are not confident that this will be a good race surface. Also the forecast is for snow Tuesday night which will add to the drama. We understand some of you might still go to sugar but we are no longer recommending it as a team and we will not be sending a coach down. Please forgive any confusion that we might have created by recommending this race a couple of days ago but the weather has not cooperated.

 

WinterTeams update Friday December 26th

Practice tomorrow Saturday December 27th for all teams 7:45am-11am.

Race team will train GS Saturday and SL Sunday. NASTAR is doubtful for this weekend.

Saturday 3pm is the Boosters Kick off meeting in the main Ballroom in the Mountain Inn. All team member parents are invited to attend.

Back this year is the Masters racing program. Adults of all ages are encouraged to participate. Coach David Lipucci will be the head coach of the program. Dave will be here the 27th –the 31st to provide Master racers coaching and gate training. If you want to sign up for Masters training please contact Chris cshepard@wintergreenresort.com soon as we will limit the signups to the first 10 participants.

Race Team The Bryce GS race will not be rescheduled for the Holiday season. If you are looking to race over the Holiday camp session the Sugar races are still scheduled for Monday December 29th (SL) and Tuesday December 30th (GS). I know we have limited terrain and there is not a race at Bryce so If you want to race at Sugar we will send a coach.

Team Jacket Update

** Race Team and D-Team Jackets – We are very sorry to report that there continues to be a delay from the manufacturer in China. Updates so far tell us that all team and resort orders in the USA have been delayed due to some type of strike in China. Don Cochrane at Freestyle has told me that the Spyder USA rep has gone directly to China to try to get a better more accurate answer on when they will be ready. We are NOT the only team to not have received their order. I know it is very frustrating, believe me, with the holidays coming and many people using these as gifts – we get it. Please trust we are doing everything we can do to speed this process up (although honestly there is not much we can do but wait and keep you informed) When the jackets do arrive – I will email everyone and send a blog message asap. We can arrange to get jackets to people within our ability! Please contact me with any additional questions. nicolemweiss@comcast.net (734) 476 3488

**Freeride Jackets – The jackets have arrived and are being printed this week! We HOPE to have them by December 19th. I will contact each person that ordered and also post a blog message when they are ready for pick up. Danny designed the logo and placement and they will look great!!
