Quick refresher on cold weather layering

By | December 13th, 2016|Categories: D-Team, X-Team|

We went from nothing to all in Minnesota winter!

Practices are on for this week.

A quick refresher course on how to dress:
– Layers, avoid cotton. Keep your core warm, a vest is always a great idea to add because is keeps the blood flowing through your body warm. Warm your base layer and add layers.
– Socks, don’t put on your ski socks till you put on your boots. That way they are not sweaty, which in turn makes you cold.
– Mittens are warmer than gloves, but don’t forget some liners.
– Hand and Foot Warmers, the simple things – drop some warmers in your gloves, and your hands will be toasty. When you stick them to your socks, be sure to put them on the top of your toes.
– Boot gloves, a great way to keep the heat in.

Just a few ideas to keep you warm!

December 3rd and 4th Practice Update

By | December 2nd, 2016|Categories: D-Team Schedule, X-Team Schedule|

Hello All Team Members,

Due to the lack of snow coverage and open terrain, all practices this weekend will be rescheduled to another date.  Our goal is to provide a quality program and feel it would be best for all participants to have more terrain available for the first practice of the season.

Please, take advantage of the delayed start of the season to stop out and get your season pass picked up and make sure your registration form has been filled out completely.

Tuesday and Thursday’s practice, next week will run as scheduled.
