Dave Kincaid Racers:

Coach Dale and Jason will be with you there on Saturday and Sunday. Coach Lorraine will be there Saturday only. I have created a WhatsApp group for communication during the race. Use this link to join the group. 


Please respond to this email if your child will not be there this weekend so that I can staff properly.

Due to the away race, I am trying to organize groups with limited coaches. My plan is to combine some groups, but it really helps to know who will be there. Here is the list of kids I have going to Dave Kincaid. I know they will not be there. I will send out groups and coaches on Friday once I have a better idea of headcount.


Saturday (GS):

Kids will train GS in the morning and then go free-skiing in the afternoon. We also will try to set one of the skillsquest drills at the bottom of the course, if space allows. 
  • Meet on Gold hills at 9:00am
  • Pick up at Gold Hills at 11:15am
  • Meet at the shacks at 12:45pm
  • Pick up at the shacks at 3:00pm

Sunday (SL U12s-(AM Gates), U10s-(PM Gates) ):

U12s will also mix in some more skillsquest practice!
U12s (SL):
  • Meet at Gold hills at 9:00am  for SL training (this gives us time to set up the course from 8:30-9:00am)
  • Pick up at the bottom of gold hills at 11:15am
  • Meet at the shacks at 12:45am for free-ski
  • Pick up at the shacks at 3:00pm


  • Meet at the shacks at 8:30am for free-ski

This weekend's focus

For those at Crystal Mountain we will be focusing on foot to foot skiing and fore-aft balance. Here is a video talking about the concept! Groups will revisit the one ski drill, falling leaf, and whirlybirds. This will get the kids back in a more balanced position which makes them more consistent in the course!
