Okemo U16-19 Program Jan. 5 - 6
Holiday break was a bit crazy with the weather and the crowds. But we survived and made strides in our SL skiing. I recognize we are GS deficient so far this season. So we will be moving into some GS training on Sunday . We will be split up on Saturday as many of you are racing and some of you have opted to train. Like I said from the get go, we will do our best to provide a training option during race days. We will have a SL training block Saturday for those not racing. Stay positive and remain focused as we charge into the busiest months of the season.
Side note: Super G is right around the corner. If you are racing SG this season it is important to get set up with the correct skis ASAP. SG races are always held midweek on a school day. Be sure to coordinate with your coaches and local shop for SG skis.
