Important Race Camp News
The X-Mas Camp for racers is running ... starting with dryland and then hopefully moving to snow after a couple of days. Cold weather is FINALLY coming over the next few days and evenings - we hope they can lay down enough to get us on the hills this week.
The X-Mas Camps for Park and Pipe skiers and boarders have been cancelled.
Please contact Nikki if you have any questions about the Xmas Camp.
Nikki can be reached here: [email protected]
