December Alpine Newsletter

We are on Snow! 

Thanks to Mother Nature, we are looking great in the valley for snow! We are in a pretty good position for training purposes and early season races here at Snow King and at JHMR! 

The FIS, U16 & U14 teams have had training camps nationally in Colorado and internationally in Austria this fall! Snow King opened Nov 26, which has provided amazing early training here on our great little town hill! 

Sean Hines (Race Director), Ned (Head U16 Coach) & Vidar (U16 Coach) take b-net up the hill with the snow cat to get Snow King ready for the season! 60 nets were taken up to protect the athletes from the natural obstacles on the side of the trail! Thank you Coaches!
