Captains Information

Caitlin Gorh, Hannah Watkins, Zach Bassett and Ryan Brubaker

Read what it takes to be a captain and application

SKIERS - Do you have any concerns, comments, anything? Let your captains know - they are there for YOU!

Daily Practice Routine

1. Be dressed out and ready for practice BEFORE our daily meeting at 2:20
2. Check the white board outside the ski room for daily workout
3. Meet with your coach in the area they specify. IF YOU DO NOT SKI WITH YOUR COACH, YOU DO NOT GET CREDIT FOR THAT DAY (unless you ski with another coach for just that day and that coach confirms it is okay. Keep in touch for your safety.
4. New to the hillside trails? Print out a map and take it with you during practices.
5. Enjoy the ride!
