TECHNIQUE is what it's all about! 



Week # 4!


It's been a unpredictable week of ... everything!  We lost all the recent snowfall, and gained an addition of icy, wet, muddy, glop-covered hills & trails.  :( 

But .. the smiles seen at practice are worthy of all the daily unknown happenings! :)  


Some of our highlights were:  


- A very nice donation to the team from the East Range Rotary!



- Group "Insanity" work out- this was fun to do.

- Popcorn / technique video practice- a good way to wind down our week.

- Ski Hut & Bentleyville outing = Team Bonding & more! 


Week 4 looks like this:


Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri; Dec 5-9th.

Conditions change frequently, bring all ski equipment & running gear daily.

Hats, gloves, outwear is always a must. 


Picture Day is Friday, Dec. 9th- bring your team uniforms, ski boots, ski hat, warm up jacket & some sort of black pants. 


Saturday Dec. 10th-  first SKI MEET of the season at Mt. Itasca in Coleraine, 11:00 am.   (snow dependent)

Our 2nd year skiers & up will race.  All of our newbie skiers are encouraged to come along to ski the warm up, and cheer for our team.  No racing yet for them.  More details to come on the ski meet line up page on this website.

        Water bottle belts & holders - TOKO brand:  insulated belt is $30.00, single water bottle belt is $ 24.00. 

        Team Ski Hats- last year's style available for $20.00.  New team hats are in the works!
