You may have noticed from looking at the calendar that we have skiing planned for Monday the 17th, and Wednesday the 19th over February break from 9am to NOON (please note earlier stop time). Typically we have a lot of families traveling during that time, and most all our coaches have work commitments at the their real jobs during that week, but we like to give the kids a chance to get out and ski if we can.
Our plan for those days is to ski as one or two GIANT PODS with whatever kids are around. Most days we will have 2 or 3 coaches there and whenever practical, we will join up the U12 program for gate training. Kids will not necessarily be with their regular coaches, but still expect to have a lot fun together. Since we expect to be doing gate training many of those days, we are likely have kids cycling around on their own with coaches stationary on the course at times. This is the way things usually work for U12s, so it will give them a preview of the next step up the Ford Sayre ladder.
Then on Tuesday, we are going to pull together a special ALL FORD SAYRE freeski day at Jay Peak — more details coming soon!
