Hopefuls 2/16-2/17 and 2/23-2/24
Hello from snowy Vermont!
Hopefuls will have usual training the next two weekends. Saturday 2/16 and Sat 2/23 we’ll ski from 9-11 and 12-2, meeting at the Sugar House. The kids in the Sunday program will ski on 2/17 and 2/24 from 8:30 - 12:30. We are not having training during the mid week. We added an extra Saturday at the end of the season as a make up day. All Hopeful coaches are volunteers and many of us have to work next week. Please enjoy taking the week to chase your kids around the mountain!
Our next race is 3/9 at the race arena. The final race of the year will be 3/16 on Wardance. This will be a regular race day with us racing in the morning and training in the afternoon followed by awards. Our final day of Hopefuls is Saturday, 3/23. On Sunday 3/24 the OMARA end of year BBQ will take place as well as the demo day and parent kid races on Wardance.
On Saturday evening, 2/16, the OMS Winter Festival is happening at WIllie Dunn’s. This is a big fundraiser for Okemo Mountain School which features wine and beer tasting, a selection of small bites from restaurants in the area, and a silent auction. Please come out to support our ski academy. More information can be found at https://www.okemomountainschool.org/events-calendar/2019/2/16/winter-festival
See you all on the slopes this weekend!
Pam, Jim and the Hopeful coaches
