Entry is $30 and includes a lift ticket. The athletes should be ready to ski and meet at the base of the lift at 8:45 am.  Mike, Dale, Al, Barrett and I will be there, but our athletes will likely be skiing with other coaches from other mountains.

This weekend’s race info —
Details for U12 Stubby SL at Quechee on Sunday, February 5:
Registration is in the basement of the Quechee base lodge from 7:30-8:30 am. The entry fee for the race is $30 – cash or check only. Your athlete will get his or her lift ticket and bib here – please have them register themselves but keep the reminders coming about not losing bibs! Parent tickets are $22 and sibling tickets are $17 and available at the ticket booth at the bottom of the chair.  You do not need to ski to be able to view the race.
Coaches will meet the athletes at 8:25 am at the base of the lift to go for free runs and inspection.
The first run starts at 9:30 am and the second run will start about an hour after the first run ends.  Keep in mind that the athletes will meet their coaches again for second run inspection.  Athletes should listen to coaches and announcements for a time for second run inspection and start times.  Second run is in reverse order within gender and awards are combined time about one hour after the completion of the race.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no “tailgating” allowed at Quechee.  Please do not bring large amounts of outside food or beverages to set up either in the parking lot or on the deck.  Quechee is a private golf/country club and the ski club is lucky to be able to operate and host races there.  NO DOGS are allowed either.
Take 100 North (the right hand turn before Jackson Gore). In Plymouth, take a right onto 100A. When this dead ends at Rt 4, take a right. This will go through Bridgewater and Woodstock – watch for cops in both towns! The speed limit goes down to 25 twice – obey the speed limit. Continue through Woodstock and after a few miles as you come to the town of Taftsville (don’t blink) you will see a big red covered bridge with a green roof on the left.  Take a left to get to the bridge.  Go across it and head straight up the hill.  Follow this road for a mile or two until you see Quechee on your left.  You can either park before the white building (base lodge) or after it.   It takes about 50-60 minutes to get to Quechee.
That’s all for now!
