Last week also saw the first snow training of the year (at Glencoe). 16 racers and three coaches took part in a very successful day that combined all mountain skiing and gate practice.

This Week

Wednesday 13th:-   Feb  Race training as usual.

Saturday 16th: -  We plan to make best use of the snow while it is here so we will have another snow bus to “nearest best snow”. 
I would like to encourage as many racers as possible to come along on Saturday -by far the best way to become a great skier is to ski with a good group on snow.
The bus board is already available and after last week I hope will be busy -so phone and bookASAP.

Next Week
