U14 Weekend Training/Race Plan 2/9 & 2/10

Hello Okemo U14 Families,

We had a very successful SG camp and race Sunday/Monday at Middlebury. Now it is time to switch gears and go into Slalom. We will be racing at Suicide Six on Sunday, which is a change from one of the first schedules I sent out. To find the most up to date schedule for the weekend program you can always go to the OMARA website (https://www.go2omara.com/alpine) or OMS website for currently enrolled athletes.

Saturday 2/9: Slalom Gates on Upper Nor Easter 8-10:30. This is a shorter training block then normal, so get on the lift as early as possible. It seems like lifts have been loading before 8 am on weekends. This will be a good opportunity to train on steeper terrain to prepare for Sunday's race. Then we will have directed free ski and drills 10:30-11:30. Lunch 11:30-12:30. Afternoon directed free ski and drills 12:30-1:30. 

Sunday 2/10: MVC Slalom Race at Suicide 6. If you haven't already done so make sure to register (https://adminskiracing.com/node/181424). The fact sheet for the race is attached below. Athletes should plan to load the lift at 8:15, and meet their coaches at the start for inspection.

Let me know if we have any Friday skiers or if you have any question, enjoy the rest of the week!
