All School Relay

  This afternoon we did an all-school relay with the underclassmen alpine skiers, snowboarders, & freestyle skiers on our obstacle course.  The alpine team has been hard at work adding new elements to our obstacle course (like the monkey bars and the balance beams, below) in addition to some of the old elements - rock wall, mud run, tires, etc. - so it was our first go at the new course.
 Teams of 4-5 athletes (mixed gender/mixed disciplines) completed 8 laps total - 4 laps running through the obstacle course and 4 laps running around the 1k woodchip trail.  Below are lots of photos (thanks to Pete Davis for a few of them!) of athletes from all our teams:

Double Rollerski Day

 This morning we spent an hour in Lot 1 working on balance and agility drills on skate skis.  We split the group into guys and girls - Matt & Gus worked with the boys and Sverre & Liz worked with the girls.   Above, Mackenzie floats through a slalom course before trying to glide out on one foot.

 This afternoon we went out to the town of Stratton for an 1:30 double pole.   Some of our juniors were busy right after school with their SAT prep class, but they got out for a workout of their own after class was over.
