Training Update

Hello everyone,

This information is for both the U12’s and the U14/16/18’s. I will make it very clear when the information applies to only one group.

As everyone is probably aware, Seymour is not it tip top condition at the moment. They have received a few centimetres of snow over the past couple of days but the freezing level rose overnight and any precipitation is currently falling in liquid form. The long range forecast is looking promising but we all know how predicable the weather can be in this part of the world.

Training must go on!

Until Seymour is open we will be looking to other hills (Whistler/Blackcomb) to fulfil our training needs. In an effort to make these trips to and from Whistler easier on the parents we have secured a donation of use of a four wheel drive winterized passenger van from Driving Force for the duration of the Christmas Break. Space is limited (room for 6) and is open on a first serve basis to MSSC Member Athletes (that call Mount Seymour Home) and we do have to cover the cost of loss and damage insurance and fuel.

Here are the details:
Max skier capacity: 6
Cost per skier: $20 round trip (will be applied to your racer account)
Who can ride: any U12, 14, 16, 18
Who’s driving: Rob

Rob has years of expense in the transport field – as a professional driver, and he drives big name musicians around when they are in town.

I will need to know ahead of time if you will be attending training and if you will be riding up in the van. Please send me an email letting me know who is going, what days they will be attending and the days that they will require a ride. Details of where and when to meet will be sent out to confirmed skiers.

Please note: once you reserve a seat it is yours and you will be responsible for filling it if you back out.
