Christmas Break Ski Camp!
3-day training block Dec. 26, 27 and 28 at Lost Valley. It will be 4 hour sessions, tentatively scheduled for 9 am to 1 pm. Please let us know ASAP if your racer would like to attend. Deadline for sign up is Friday, 12/21. We need a minimum of 7 Racers to make it happen. Our expected fee for this camp will be $100 for the 3 days. It is possible to do 2 or 1 day of the camp and the fee would $36 a day. Those that paid the all inclusive registration, access to the camp is included.
And by the way, Lost Valley will be holding a Race/shootout on the last day as well! This camp is a great way to get your racer up to speed quickly for this season!
Big Mountain Training in December!
It that's time of year again, Skiing and Racing! LVRC's first big mountain trip is Saturday December 1st! And then 3 more Saturdays for the month of December, (12/8, 12/15)
We hope you can join us!
We need a minimum of 15 to attend. Every Friday Morning prior, we will make a determination whether or not its still on. Also, let us know if you'd be willing to give another racer a ride.
Same deal as always, Family members are invited to join us to take advantage of the reduced ticket rate.
We have not confirmed the group rates yet, but last Year's cost for the trip is $37 for Racers and $47 for adults. Looks like a standard tick price for that weekend is $63 and the group rate will save you at least $16 a person. For those with Sunday River passes, it will be $10 fee for the racer to help cover the Coaches.
Sunday River Meetup Details
We will be meeting at the Barker Lodge at 8 AM to mosey on down and get the tickets. Your racers should be suited up and ready to go at 8 AM. The lifts open at 8 AM and we want to be on the fresh snow as soon as we can. I recommend arriving at the Lodge at 7:30 AM to give yourself enough time to get ready and go with the pack to get the tix. We usually change up and stash our stuff on the top floor of Barker, so if you are the first to arrive head on up and snag us a table. If you are running a bit late just try and hook up with us by 8 AM so that we can get your discounted ticket. If you are going to be later than 8, you can try and call me, but I can't guarantee I'll get the call. Please have cash or check with your racer to pay for the ticket. We prefer cash, but will take a check. If you do write a check, make it out to: Lost Valley Racing Club.
