Tri-State: Sat Dec 12 Update from Race Director, Greg Knight

December 9, 2020

Triststate: Please see note below from Race Director, Greg Knight, regarding the first day of training on Saturday Dec 12.

*****

HI Everyone:

I was just at the mountain and they have blown a lot of snow over the past 3 nights.  However it is not enough to open this weekend and given that it is predicted to warm up this weekend they made the decision to open for Friday the 18th.

We are going to practice on Saturday from 9AM-12PM.  We will do some dryland training and some on snow work.

Please bring the following:

  1. Mask– Will be sent home if you do not have one on!
  2. Running shoes and workout clothes
  3. Slalom Ski gear- No guards
  4. Bottles or water
  5. Healthy Snack

Your athlete will be able to change on the Cruise deck outside from ski boots to sneakers. 

Goals of the practice:

  • Introducing of coaches –  I will send out coaches contacts later
  • Introduction of this year’s rules, including social distancing measures we must follow
  • Getting athletes heart rate going and seeing what kind of shape they are in
  • Getting reacquainted back on snow with 2 or 3 exercises

If your athlete does not feel well when they get up Saturday morning please do not come to the area.

I know this is not what we all wanted but we are able to get on snow and get some kind of training in.  We are excited to see all the athletes.  I promise they will sleep well Saturday night!.

Sincerely:

Greg

Race Director
