COLD WEATHER IS COMING!!!
It looks like on a second week in November we will have great temperatures for snow making. We need 7-10 days of good temperatures to make enough snow to open for training. We are hoping that we could be training at Snow King right around Thanksgiving.
Please check weekly emails from coaches for updates.
We had some Covid cases among athletes in October and we believe we prevent the spread at dryland. We are still learning every day and we believe we have good protocols in place and are on a good path to keep athletes safe.
At trainings we will keep reinforcing wearing face coverings, social distancing, washing hands, etc.
We have 35 U16 and FIS athletes and 4 coaches participating in JHSC Fall Colorado Camp. Due to no snow, we had to cancel our U14 camp at Loveland.
U16 and FIS athletes will be skiing from Nov 7th to 15th. Athletes are free skiing, doing drills and skiing GS and SL courses at Copper. This is very important camp to make sure athletes are ready for the start of the season.
We have over 100 athletes from U10, U12, U14, U16 and FIS teams coming to dryland. Athletes are having fun and they are working on physical conditioning, coordination, balance, etc. We will continue with conditioning until Snow King opens for training.
