Mikaela Shiffrin and the best women in the world are returning to Killington! They’ll be racing GS on Saturday and SL on Sunday. Many Ski Runners families attended the race last year and had a great time. There will be a parade for the kids, so stay tuned for further details. Who wants to organize the tailgate?
Christmas Camp is the preseason training camp for all of the Alpine Racing Programs, U10 through U19. We blend skill drills with freeskiing and some fun & games to really get the season started on the right foot. If conditions permit, Christmas Camp culminates with the Easy Mile Downhill! Exact dates and training times will be determined by snow conditions. Look for email updates from the coaching staff.
On Sunday, February 25, it’s the U12s turn to race for glory on The Face at the Suicide 6 Stubby SL. What’s a stubby? It’s a hinged SL gate that’s only about 24 inches tall. The kids “shin” these gates as they learn to make fast, clean slalom turns. Come out and support the home team!
Race The Face signals the end of the official Ski Runners season, and we make sure our annual club race is a great time for everyone. In a parallel GS, the kids race against each other, brothers race sisters, parents race each other, parents race their kids, the dog races the cat. The kids wear costumes. You get the idea. There’s no timing. Today is all about fun and celebrating the season as a team!
WSR Clubhouse at Suicide 6 - The first day of Dry-land training for the alpine programs is Sunday, November 5. We’d like all parents to join us for an orientation session while the kids are out hiking Suicide 6. This is your opportunity to ask questions about your child’s program, gear, ski tuning or even trade that pair of ski pants that do not fit anymore. Then we will fire up the grill and celebrate the coming season. We’ll provide basic grill items like burgers, dogs, buns and condiments, but we’d love our membership to bring a snack, side or dessert to share. If you are new to the club, this is a great opportunity to meet other families and learn what makes Ski Runners so special!
