Things look cold, cold tomorrow! Vasiline is your friend. Let's make sure we have appropriate clothing.

  • Rookie skiers plan on waxing Thursday 
  • Varsity can leave practice early to go home and wax.
  • We will try to sneak in a quick session on the classic skis.

The week ahead.
  • Saturday is the Bemidji Meet.
  • Flyer is up. 
  • The forecast looks a little iffy, the race organizer said he will be making a call Thursday night. I'll let you know when I know.
NEXT WEEK... The Little Falls race is THURSDAY. The original schedule had the race Tuesday. Just want to make sure everyone has seen the updated schedule.

Keep picking single form improvements and committing to that change. Remember a huge piece to that improvement is time on skis as well. Find your groove and keep skiing:-)

Ride share reminder. Please, please make sure your pick up group is covered if you are not at school or coming to practice. 

Thanks Everyone!!

See you tomorrow:-)
