Cold Safety, Meet, Practice Tomorrow and Team Picture Info.

With cold temperatures frostbite and hypothermia are always a concern.  We instruct skiers to be prepared to cover their face and to take care of fingers by putting them against hips or under arms if they are feeling too cold. Skiers who are feeling too cold can also leave practices to go inside.   Here's what the Mayo Clinic has to say regarding frostbite symptoms and hypothermia.  I encourage all skiers and families to read through these articles.

The Classic Suburban Conference JV Championship schedule for tomorrow is postponed because of cold safety concerns.  Friday Jan 31st, Monday, Feb. 3rd and Friday, Feb. 7th are being mentioned as new meet dates.  I'll post something when I know for sure.

Varsity skiers will have an indoor practice tomorrow at 2:30pm.  Please come prepared to get a workout inside.

Finally our team pictures are scheduled for Friday, Jan. 31st.  We'll have to be flexible, as this is one of the proposed dates for our JV Championship.

When The Weather Gives Us Lemons, We Make Pancakes!


Looks like we made the right decision to change our meets to Friday the 24th with school being cancelled tomorrow.  We, however, are not done waxing skis.  In order to be prepared for our JV to go to Richfield and for our Varsity to go to Mahtomedi we will have a 6am waxing party Friday morning.  Let's try to get as many skiers there waxing as possible.  Coaches are making pancakes.  I would encourage families to carpool.

Schedule Changes!

 
Due to the cold weather forecast for Thursday The Conference Relays will be held on Friday at Mahtomedi.  The JV/Middle School  will be going to a meet for young and new skiers at Richfield to give them an opportunity to compete against experience and age peers.  Thanks for flexibility on these date changes.
