Bill Koch Begins Dec 2nd/Great Holiday Camps

November 27, 2019
Grand Mesa was a success and the snow gods blessed us with graet skiing conditions both on the Mesa and here at home! If you havent skiied the golf course, get out and enjoy the fresh groomed trails! Also, our Canada Camp for National Comp is in full swing, with a week+ of skiing north of the border. 

Bill Koch begins on Monday (Aspen) and Tueday (Spring Gulch). We are very excited to be including our BK skiers in our programming and now our whole Nordic community is in full swing! Please see reminders below. 

1: For those that need to rent gear for the season. Please call or visit the Aspen Nordic Center. We team up with the Ute Mountaineer for rentals and they run the Nordic Center. Please schedule your gear and pickup directly with them. Note: One Day skiers need only classic skis and our Quick read more or view full article Two Day skiers need both Skate and Classic skis. 

2. We have fantastic programming rolling out this season! Your skier will be sent home with a poster and a parent booklet. These resources are for your skiers to track their progress throughout the season and beyond and the parent book is written so that you all are able to follow along and learn more about what we do on snow! More will be explained at the parent meetings. 

3. WINTER CLOTHING: Please have your skiers come prepared. Hats, Gloves, Jackets, Pants, socks, water and sunglasses. When the sun comes out, its warm and wonderful, but when the sun goes away the temperature drops 15-20 degrees! Lets be prepared!

Thanks so much and we are super excited for next week. Please have your skiers ready to go by the time practice starts so that we are not waiting for everyone.
