GENERAL ALPINE UPDATE

Hello All,

 

We had a great start to the season. We are thankful to be skiing at all and hope it continues. Things are very dicey. If you live in the Alps and speak French, Italian, German or even Romansh, you are not skiing. European resorts are not operating until 2021.

 

All Colorado FIS races in December have been canceled. So, nobody will be racing until at least seven weeks from now. I want to emphasize again that this season will look very different than anything we've seen before. Everyone needs to be patient.

 

Between Justin and I, we have thirty years of dealing with Telski. We understand what they need to do to become operational, and they know what we need to function as a club on the mountain. They have been great supporters of our program and are committed to giving us what we need to be successful. We have had very little natural snow, warm temperatures the last six weeks and are in a drought during a global pandemic...just a few obstacles.

 

Also, we know there is a Competition Hill with a Poma lift and lights. The lights will never be turned on for training (if you would like I can explain, just call me). Comp Hill will be available when they can make snow on it. Until then we will have our normal progression of available training terrain.

 

We are going to take advantage of this extended training period to address fundamental skill development for all of our athletes.

 

Again, enjoy the skiing we have, be patient and appreciate what we do have. Things will get close to normal late Spring, early Summer. Until then we will do the best we can for you and your families.

 

Here is the overall schedule for the next few weeks. You will receive emails before each weekend with updated hours and meeting places.

 

***Both clubhouses are closed until further notice. Also, masks are absolutely required in lift lines and on chairlifts. We have found a buff that is CDC approved. It is Blackstrap Buffs. You must get the Dual Layer buff.

 

U14-19's Training this Wednesday Dec. 2 and Saturday and Sunday Dec. 7-8.

U 12 First Day is Saturday Dec.7.

***U12's will start skiing skiing Wednesdays starting Dec. 9.

U10 and Gravity Alpine First Day is Dec. 12.

 

***As always call with any questions. LG 860-919-3072.
