Good afternoon coaches!
Hope everyone has had a good weekend and a great start to their week. I wanted to give you a all an update of what this week will look like. As you all know, Glen Eden is making all the efforst in the world to make snow at every opportunity that they get…based on snow availability- we will be training on one lane all week:
Monday- Jan 9–> Make sure you have submitted your hours online by end of day today. Highschool Racing Coaches- meet Emilie in the clubhouse at 6:30pm. Tonight we will be doing a ski off with the athletes and placing them in their appropriate groups- you will be free-skiing with your groups and working on ski improvement. No gates this week. Next week will be GS gates for them. There will also be a small freestyle group and the Snowboard development team in the clubhouse starting their training this evening!
Tuesday, Jan 10–> TNT night #1. Jeff will be coaching for Heidi, Tyler, Danielle, John, Rick and Will. Meet in the clubhouse for 6:30pm for a quick meeting.

Saturday, Jan 14–> JHL #2. JHL coaches, please meet myself for your session at 8:30am in front of clubhouse. all teams that are at home will be training SL. All league coaches and apprentices, please be on snow for 7:30am.
Sunday, Jan 15th–> Hosting SL for J White Team.- all league coaches on snow for 7:30am. All teams at home will be training SL in the afternoon. Thanks to Meghan and Chloe who expressed interest in helping out with the race- much appreciated!
As you all are probably aware, this week kicks off lessons for the snow school and this means that the hill will be a little busier, please use the start of the evening to remind your racers of some hill etiquette:
– making groups of 3 or 4 before lining up for the chairlift
-no horseplay in the lift lines
– in order to use the ski school line, your racers must be with a coach, no exceptions will be made for this. If you would like to have your racers cycle through fast, I encourage you to instruct them to make use of the single line.
Please also, think about where you are stopping on the hill and try your best to keep your group in one condensed line or cluster off to the side. Thank you to everyone for a great first weekend and looking forward to seeing you all on snow this week!
