State Championships and the Last Week at the Whale

It is hard to believe that the last weekend of the season is coming up! What a fantastic year of racing!

Last weekend many of our racers ventured over to Wildcat Mountain for the State Championships. While we certainly had our game faces on for the races, we still made sure to make time for some less serious fun! From starting dance parties at the top of the race course to our team dinner on Saturday night at the White Mountain Hotel, we definitely made some really great memories!

We had beautiful, sunny skies not just on Friday but Saturday and Sunday as well! Each of us made sure to take a moment to realize how lucky we are to not only be skiing, but also to be skiing on a mountain with a few of Mount Washington right across the way! It is certainly a view that is hard to beat!

A special congratulations goes out to Phoebe and Sienna who will be competing at Piches this weekend at Gunstock Mountain- rip it up girls!

Our final week at Whaleback couldn’t have been any better. The 50-degree weather was a nice change up from the conditions that have forced us to wear layers and layers of clothing all winter long! I like to think that we deserved the warm weather treat we were given this week J

We trained a fast paced GS course on Tuesday, a full length GS with the U14s on Wednesday and yesterday another GS course that forced the athletes to “stack up” and be balanced on their skis. Between the deep ruts our racers skied Wednesday to the hard, slick and ungroomed conditions we had yesterday, our athletes are ready to take on any conditions that our final race on Sunday will bring!

As we come into the last weekend of racing the U12 team would like to congratulate all of our athletes on a fantastic season. We can’t wait to wrap it up with the Technica Winter Finish on Sunday! See you there!
