Grand Targhee and JHMR are open!!!! Snow King should be open this Saturday!!!
After a long fall in the gym, we finally got on snow these last two weekends. We were at Grand Targhee two weeks ago and last weekend we were at JHMR. It was great being back on snow.
At Grand Targhee we were mostly free skiing and at JHMR we were working on drills. As soon as Snow King opens we will start training gates as well, until then we will keep free skiing and doing drills.
We believe that Snow King is doing everything to open as soon as possible. Unfortunately temperatures are just not cold enough to make quality snow.
Physical Assessment Testing
We are done with physical testing and it was a great success! Athletes who were regularly coming to practices and who were doing Fall sports improved the most. With some groups, we will keep going on with dryland thru the season.
