Weekend of Dec 6 and 7 Skiing

With the upcoming forecast for warmer temperatures, it is critical that skiers get as much time on snow as possible. The weekend provides perfect opportunity to do a lot of skiing. Hyland and Elm Creek are open from 5 AM until 10 PM. Just by being on snow a skier will improve regardless of proper skiing technique. Balance will improve with frequency and time! Go enjoy yourself, meet a teammate(s), bring a friend, bring a family member-just ski!

Weekend Skiing -Dec. 6 and 7

Although we cannot hold “official” practice at Hyland as we cannot reserve it this weekend – we strongly suggest that you get as much skiing in as you can this weekend! Hyland and Elm Creek are full 5K courses, excellent snow, but very crowded from 9-11am and extremely busy between 11 and 4pm. Snow is ideal earlier in the day.
Ski classic Saturday morning and skate afterwards. Varsity ski 1 hour of each minimum. Those who want best training effect, classic 1.5 hours and skate 1.5 hours but take at least 1 hour rest and meal break between. Tuesday’s 12/9 race is 5k Skate at Hyland at 3:45
