Hello SKI FRIENDS! 

 

It was super nice to be together at Monday's preseason meeting!

Catching up with our veteran skiers and meeting our new skiers & parents is always a smile maker! 

Our season is looking to kick off just right.  With all these cold temps, the snow guns are blasting away at Giant's Ridge and lots of other Nordic ski venues!

Mother Nature is watching out for us, and hopefully the real snow will follow soon! 

This site is updated once or twice a week. You'll find more action along with photos on the team's Facebook & Instagram pages.

     

Please check in often to keep up with our team doings! 

 

There's a few things coming up to dial in for! 

 

FIRST DAY of PRACTICE is TUESDAY, NOV 12th.

Transportation:

For the Mesabi East skiers: ride bus #8 to GR. Parents pick up skiers by 6 pm.  

There is a bus from the Virginia High School, (door # 6) that the VA & MIB skiers will board after school.  This bus then stops at the Gilbert Jr High to pick up the EG skiers.

The VA bus will return all skiers on the same route after practice, with arrival to the VA High School at 6:30 pm. The VAAST Alpine team will also be riding this bus once they are practicing at GR. 

 

What to bring:

CLEARANCE SLIPS- from your school's AD. You cannot practice until these are turned into a coach. 

FORMS- Medical, Volunteer, Skier / Parent Info card, etc.  return to a coach.

All of the items are optional.  We do provide the race suit for all skiers, and we issue team warm up jackets
