Hello U10 & U12 parents,

Some more information to pass along…

[U10 / U12] Dry Land Fitness Testing

The third and final fall fitness test takes place this coming Sunday, November 24th at the Mickey McDougall Gym in North Vancouver. In order to keep the groups manageable starting times will be based on age (siblings can come together):

U16 – 08:30
U14 – 09:30
U12 – 10:15
U10 – 11:00

Please, make sure you arrive on time as this event will be very busy. This test will be a FULL test and will show how much the athletes have improved since the last full testing in spring.

Makes sure to bring water, running shoes, and be sure to warmup at least 10 min before testing starts.

[U12] Whistler Training

This Saturday (November 23rd) will be our first official day on snow. The plan is to meet in front of Guest Services in Creekside at 8:15, grab our tickets and head up the hill. We will ski until close (3PM) and then download back to Creekside.

I have three seats available in my car if a ride to and from Whistler is needed. Please let me know if your child requires a ride and I will send you additional details about where and when to meet.

– all skiers are required to purchase their own passes
– skis / boots / poles (make sure all equipment is in working order and that the boots fit the bindings!)
– helmet and googles
– dress in layers
– a packed lunch or lunch money
– a day pack to stash lunches and extra layers / gloves in

If you can’t make it out this weekend don’t worry… we will be heading back back to Whistler November 30th, December 7th and 14th.

*** Please let me know if you child will be joining us in Whistler this weekend. A simple response to this email will do. Thanks! ***

EDGE Cards

We will be visiting Whistler a number of times over the season. If you skier will be coming out to one or more of these sessions I would recommend purchasing an EDGE Card.

Prices for the pass range from $41 to $339 depending on the number of days you preload. After your pre-purchased days are used, you will be charged a discounted daily lift ticket rate for each day you ski or ride. Another big advantage to the Edge Card is that you can tie it to a credit card which means no more ticket window lines… straight to the lift and lunches can be paid for with the pass.

Early Bird rates end November 25.
