Our popular dryland summer camps will once again feature special guest coaching from our SMS T2 team members. Imagine getting coached by World Cup skiers and Super Tour winners, it's pretty exciting.
Our BKL camp for kids entering 5th-8th grade is scheduled for July 31-August 3rd.
Our Junior Camp for skiers entering 9th grade through Freshman in college will be August 3-6.

Our SMS T2 team had another great year with 8 individual World Cup podiums and many more top 10’s. It was exciting to have six skiers racing in the Canadian World Cups and see so many of our local supporters cheering in Quebec.
While April is our “off” month, we are planning for the future. Each year at this time we review the year with our athletes to discuss how we can best help them reach their goals and determine our team for the upcoming year.

Above, our SMS T2 skiers after the relay. Pat had to don a bib in order to have 2 official teams and he still looks in shock! Simi had to rtace sick and needed his dog to help him sit up afterwards :).
Our two teams placed 2nd and 5th for the official club race. Congrats to APU for once again taking the club relay gold.
Jessie powered out of the start and built a 1 minute lead by 13 kms. She kept going strong and won by over a minute. Very impressive week by someone who raced the entire World Cup circuit.
Annie H, Sophie and Erika all made the top 10 and KO managed to finish solidly despite fighting a cold.
JKern skiing well, but skiing on fumes, still managed the junior win.
Ben had a very strong race, placing 5th for juniors (behind 4 college boys) and beating several guys who qualified for world juniors. Here he is duking it out with a New Mexico skier who placed 17th at NCAA's.
Late season races are often as much of a test of will as anything else. Everyone is tired, everyone is fighting to hold on. The ones who do best are the ones who can get to the race with pretty good energy and push through their mental and physical fatigue.
Congratulations to all of the competitors. The last race earned everyone a spring break.
