THANK YOU to everyone that came to play last weekend.  It was so much fun!

This weekend is USSA race on Whitewater.  Piles are looking good!

  • One race Saturday and one race Sunday.  Both SL races and big kids and little kids.
  • I also understand that there will be a few “rabbits” in attendance.  Make sure your littles know these aren’t the fuzzy, snuggly kind (LOL).
  • I understand that getting registered for the race has had some hiccups .. don’t give up.. new system that they are working out the bugs.
  • And for those that are asking … YES THERE WILL BE A MUSIC JAM AND DANCE SESSION ON THE DECKS IN THE MORNING.  Yes, it was a highlight of last weekend.
  • The snow crew anticiaptes Log Jam, Otterslide, Bunny, Bambi and Whitewater (Saturday for the race).  As always, it all is determined by Mother Nature and good snowmaking.
Lodging is still available at Ski Brule.  Book online or call 800-362-7853.

Training is available Friday through Sunday. 

  • Just check with Jess at Bear’s Den to find out when and where to train.
  • Teams will work together on the terrain designated trail as the training area.  No specific desiginate training lanes.  Everyone plays nice together and I heard that USSA may be brining their gates to use on Friday.
  • Coaches:  please do not set stubbies, brushes, pole jumpers, gates etc on terrain other than the designanted training area.  My eyes may turn green and those that know me, know you might want to run if they turn green (lol).
  • There is no “this is my lane”, it is a trail dedicated to training and sharing. 🙂

Weekend Food & Beverage:

  • Ski Brule will have Fish Fry Friday night at the Brule Saloon and evening dining on Saturday.
