It's good to be home...

After a long camp in Vail, CO, we have finally settled into our weekly schedule at home.  We have had the opportunity to get in some great SL training this past week on SL Hill.  While the snow is thin in spots, it is still very good.  We spent the week working on two different sections of SL Hill; from the start to the knoll, and from about halfway down the pitch to the bottom.  It has been fun to see the girls get back into SL and make some serious progress in one week.  With race after race being postponed, it gives us even more time to continue to develop as well as increase our mileage before stepping into the starting gate.

We did send a small group of girls to the Sunday River FIS Open Races on December 8th and 9th.  Courtney Hayden turned in a career best result on day 1 moving all the way from bib 70 to finish 26th, scoring a 55.16!  On day 2 Emma Sahn finished 2nd for U18's, way to go girls!

All smiles out of Emma on the U18 Podium!

I had the opportunity to bring Sandra, Katelyn, Grant, and Trent to the U16 Fundamentals Camp at Burke December 9th - 11th.  I was extremely impressed with the ability level of the U16 athletes in the Eastern region.  It will be fun to have those athletes start to filter into the USSA race circuit as the season progresses.
