First day of practice: TUESDAY NOV 14
Nov 6, 2017, 2:15 pm


There are only Three Rules on this Team.

1. Be a great person.  2. Be a great student.  3. Be a great athlete.   In that order. 



Week # 1: Starts Tuesday, Nov. 14th! 





It was really great to see so many new & veteran skiers at our pre season meeting! Can you 

believe this weather?  We may be able to get on ski's that very first day! Check back here for updates...

The first week is crazy busy with lots of details, here is a list of items that pertain to it. 




  • Activity Forms- these are posted on your school websites or pick one up from your AD’s office.  Complete and return to your AD, before the first day of practice. 


  • Clearance Slip- bring to practice. No Clearance slip = no practice. 


  • Skier ID info cards, Medical Consent forms, Skier Handbook page.  


  • Bus Transportation for practices:  ME students ride bus # 8, a regular school bus route.  Arrive at Giant’s Ridge about 3:45.  VA / EG skiers:  Bus leaves VA school at door #6 at 3:15, then stops at the Gilbert JH to pick up EG skiers.

The VA bus will return skiers to Gilbert JH, and to VA school by 6:30 each day. 


  • Practice: runs 4-6pm, M-F.     


  • Bring: running shoes, water bottle, some sort of BLAZE ORANGE.  Veteran skiers: bring classic equpiment - rock skis, boots, poles.

Any questions? Call, text or email Coach CJ. 

Looking forward to a super snowy, great fun and successful season!


I'm joining the 2017/18 team because..

My parents are making me.
It's a secret.
It's the coldest winter sport.
Those 9 seniors are finally gone. I might have a chance.
Benji N is the new winter sports director.
