  • YSL U12 update
    I hope everyone is faring well after this weekends race, it was a fantastic day and yes, some of our racers had more luck on the course than others, but everyone put forth great effort. Although they may have seemed tedious at at time, all of the training and drills that each athlete has worked on up till this point have paid off. If anybody feels the need to talk about or would like a little more in depth feedback on their run from the race, please do not hesitate to call. For this Tuesday nights training, the plan is to switch our focuses over, move back into slalom and set a course using stubby gates on the lower section down towards Snake Creek. I hope everyone has a fantastic Monday and we’ll see you all tomorrow night and as always if anyone has any questions, comments or concerns never Continue Reading...

    BST Weekly Update 1.19.2015 — PC YSL INFO, training updates for all – http://eepurl.com/bbSAgj Thank you, Volunteers & Congratulations to the Connors! The Hartlauer Memorial 2015 was a success — thanks to all of you! Wow! What an awesome weekend! We had the privilege to start out the competition season for the division with the Hartlauer Memorial this year, and it went great. We want to thank all of the parent volunteers for helping to make our races so successful. Also, a big thank you to the Brighton resort staff. We could not host our races without their support. The Milly Chalet had some specials for our racers, the lift operators opened up early for our course crew, the parking attendants who were up in the dark to park cars, and of course the ski patrol who were ready to help when we called. It was a great weekend. Our Continue Reading...

  • Saturday Review 1/17/15 Coach Deborah
    Dear YSL parents, The team had a great practice preparing for our first race. We worked on angulation skills for carving to warm up in the morning. Additionally, we began to work on mental tactics for racing. This included the idea that every race experience is also training for the next race. We practiced clearing the excitement and fear – their words – from our heads, and oxygenating our blood for muscle performance, through deep breaths. Some Olympians can be seen doing this or even yawning excessively prior to an event, for the same psychological and physiological reasons. I advised the team that in the start area, each of them should draw inward, visualizing their own  skill focus and their own run in the course, rather than watching the other racers prepare and start. In the afternoon, our group got three runs in a mock race. We had a start Continue Reading...

  • U8 update 1.16.2015
    Hello everybody, Last week we had a great day of training. We were able to do drills in the morning. In the afternoon we had a picnic at the bottom of Milly and watched the south series race. Tomorrow we will be running some drills in the morning. In the afternoon we will be running the course as if it were a race. The kids will inspect the course, wear bibs, we will have a start bump, and wireless timing. This should help the kids prepare for next week. Tomorrow might get cold with the wind chill so remember hand warmers and extra layers. See you tomorrow. Eric...

  • IMD Team update from Garrett 1.14.2015
    Hey gang,    Our big Brighton race weekend is over. Big thanks to all the parents who helped make the weekend a success. Everyone had at least one run they could be happy with across the three different races going on this weekend. In general we will be sticking to the season plan (color coded excel document) with GS skiing this weekend and Slalom during night training. We will ALWAYS be on Slalom skis during night training for a variety of reasons including safety, speed, hill space and productivity. Tomorrow those who have signed up for training I will need your help to set up the SL course. This weekend’s gate time will be limited and we will primarily be focusing on technique over tactics. All the video I can find of you guys will hopefully be uploaded to Sprongo tonight. – check it out. Sincerely, Garrett...
