** Needed ** 

WAX GURU's for team wax nights. 

Our team is looking for more hands in the wax hut to help wax skis, during practice time, before a big meet. (Pursuits, Section Race, etc) We'd love to have a couple of new Dads (or Moms) who would like to get more involved with our team wax fests. No experience is necessary, all you have to do is follow some basic instruction from the others that help. The time committment is usually 3 hours or less. (3-6 pm, the day before a race). The dates needed yet this season: Friday - Jan 19, Thursday- Jan. 25, Wed - Jan. 31, Wed - Feb. 7. Currently our wax guru's are: Keith J, Jack G, Dan K, and some of us coaches. If you are interested, let Coach CJ know. THANKS for your support! 

Well, Mother Nature sure knows how to move our schedule around! But, we've GOT SNOW now! 



SMILES! That is what we've seen lately after last week's races!


Nice work everyone - at the Spirit Mtn. Meet and the ME Invite! Those finish places keep moving in the right direction - up, and as we always say... the first page of results is where you want to be!  :) 


That's a wrap for the 2018 ME Invite! 

Thanks to our team parents & Giant's Ridge volunteers for your support at the spaghetti feed & race day details.

Special kudo's to our key support crew at GR- "Pepsi" Deb Maki & Benji Neff, and booster club president -Sandy Tardiff. 

It was an awesome day all around!! 


The ritual of Captain's awards, (funny or serious prize offerings) are highly coveted and sought after from all team members. These super sugary, downright bad for you, and ultimately darn yummy, variety of candy handouts, are a hit- the day after a ski meet. Check in with your skier to see if he or she has been awarded a Captain's Award recently! 

THANKS to Captain's Kayla, Christine, Callie & Jared
