President’s Week Training: We will train mid-week during President’s week (week of 2/20).  We will train 4 out of the 5 days (weather dependent) – hopefully Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday, but we will choose the day off based on the weather if necessary.  Training this week is included in your Competition Center fees.
Details for U12 GS at Pico on Sunday 1/29: (Similar routine to the Skills Day and Dual!)
Registration: 7:30 am in the upstairs of the Andrea Mead Lawrence Lodge, which is in between the Pico Ski Club and The Ski Shop/Main Lodge.  Have your athlete register themselves please!  As with any MVC “regular” season race for U10 or U12s, you do not need to register your athlete beforehand – I take care of all of the entries.  Entry fee is $30 (payable in cash or check payable to Pico Ski Club only), which includes your athlete’s lift ticket.  Please remind athletes to put their bibs on immediately and do not lose them!
We have to leave our bags and get ready downstairs in the Main Base Lodge (park on the right hand side of the main parking lot and go straight through the condos – base lodge is on the right), not in the Andrea Mead Lawrence Lodge.
Coaches will meet athletes at 8:25 am in front of ski club which is at the at the base of the B-slope lift/bottom of the race trail (go out of the base lodge and go left if you are facing the mountain) to go for inspection and free runs.  First run will start at 9:30 am.  There will likely be a re-set for second run, so athletes should listen to coaches and announcements to figure out when to meet for second run inspection.
Please note: Parent lift tickets are available for $45 but only two per racer are allowed. They must be purchased at the main ticket office between the parking lot and the base lodge – NOT at registration. In the past they have only been sold until 9:00 AM and you had to know your child’s bib number – be prepared! As many of you know, the race can be viewed on foot without lift access.
Awards will take place in front of the ski club, which is basically at the finish area about 20-30 minutes after the race.  Listen for announcements.
Driving directions to get to Pico: Head north on Rt. 100 – make a right to stay on Rt. 100 just before Jackson Gore. Turn left on Rt. 4 and go past the Bear Mtn. gondola for Killington and past the Killington access road. About 2 miles past that, you will see The Inn at Long Trail on your right – Pico will be on your left just down the hill. It takes about 35-45 minutes to get there. Beware of cops in Plymouth on Rt 100 when the speed limit drops!!
That’s all for now!  Thanks!
