What a great weekend! Congratulations to everyone who participated in the second world cup!! Everyone did an absolutely fantastic job!  We did take video of the racers and you can find them on Sprongo.  I apologize in advance for the second run video as Harriet did not realize there was a “draw” button on the video camera, which she hit by accident, so there are scribbles on the video.  Please find the videos at this link: https://sprongo.com/playlists/157962/68183/t

For those of you that were here this past weekend, you saw that Zander is back and has been cleared to ski for the rest of the season! Unfortunately, this weekend Adria took a fall and will be out for the rest of the season. Please send good vibes her way so she can heal quickly!

Next weekend, (March 3) we will have a race called the Heinz Paul. It is a fundraiser to raise money to buy equipment for our program. The U8s will be participating. I believe the race will take place on suntanner on March 3rd. Parents are welcome to register and race as well. As soon as I know more details I will post where and how you can register your racer. 

The following weekend, Saturday March 9th we will have our tubing party in sun bowl after skiing. I am going to talk with families this weekend to make sure that this is a good weekend so our attendance is high. As soon as I speak with a majority of the families I will let you know when it is okay to buy your tubing ticket.

Happy Presidents Day!!!

This weekend we will have program Saturday through Monday!! February 16-18 :) Whoohooo!!!!

Our second race will be on Sunday, for all U8s and all U10s. You do not need to register!! We are still waiting for confirmation from the mountain where the race will be held. As of now, I am going to say it is in the same location on Suntanner. If this changes I will let you know :)

Thank you to all the parents who read the blog with their kids!! It is very clear which kids read it and which kids did not. 

The question this week is: What place did Vonn finish in her last race!?!? 

Thank you for all the emails about this upcoming weeks attendance :) This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

U8 February 9th & 10th

Our next race will be next Sunday February 17th :) Please tune!!

We will be training GS and free skiing this weekend. Please pray for good weather! Our mountain needs it!!

If you are going away for Presidents week, please let us know! You can email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We will be having our tubing party in March! :)

please let your razor carry their own equipment, it is important for them to take care of their own stuff. 

Can you believe we only have 7 weeks !?!? This is a question I am going to ask the racers Saturday morning to see who read the blog :) Please read the blog with them it is important to know what is going on every weekend. 

Thank you to all the parents who have updated equipment and made changes to their child's race gear, when we have asked! We know it is difficult and expensive. But it makes a huge difference! A racer who has the right skis or goggles is like having gas in a car.... Without the right stuff, it is hard to go anywhere.

U8 Plan-Feb 2nd & 3rd

We had a great weekend, free skiing, training Gates and skiing in the woods!!

This coming weekend we are hoping to do the same!! 




I will not be there Sunday. Adria will be there! 

Please remind your little racers if they need to go to the bathroom to please ask us. Please make them go before they come out in the morning and before they come back out after lunch. It holds everyone up when someone has to go at 8:45 and at 12:45. We know it's hard. But if you don't pee you don't ski!! :)

If you don't want your racers buying a snack please pack them something in their pocket. :) 

We will be having a tubing party soon!! Date TBD**
