Feb 27 and 28

Dear Families,

Practice Cancelled

Because of the deteriorating conditions at the mountain we will be unable to train this weekend.   I was at the mountain Tuesday evening and the conditions were very poor.



2/27 and 2/28 Practice

Dear TMH,

El NADA has hit us once again.  I just spoke with the mountain and they have removed all of the snow on conquest to the lower mountain to remain open for this weekend.  The figure 8  ( chisholm and wyatt) will be open this weekend but it is very thin.  With temperatures in the mid 60’s this week at the mountain they will loose more snow.  Most of our athletes will be traveling this weekend to China Peak or Mammoth.  World Cuppers will tentatively have practice at Mt. High on Saturday and Sunday 8:30 am -12:00 pm.  Please check the website Thursday by 7 pm for a definitive decision.


I will try to arrange training at other mountains for the remainder of the year so our kids will be prepared for championships and any other events that they may be participating in.  We have been able to rent space at Mammoth or train with Snow Summit through the end of March.

Please email me with any questions or concerns that you may have.



China Peak SG and Big G

TMH Families,

Please make sure that you register your child for the USSA race at China Peak.  This is a U10-U16 race weekend.  It is unique that the U16’s are allowed to race and a great opportunity for those U16 athletes that don’t want to race in Mammoth that weekend.

There is a dinner and awards fundraiser Saturday night at the mountain.  Please pre-register at chinapeakraceteam.com.  If you have any questions about this event please contact me.

If you are not attending, please check the website for training updates.  We will provide coaching if the mountain is open and we have adequate hill space. This has been a tough season for us because of the weather.  We will continue to try and make accommodations so that our kids are prepared for races.

We will not train Wednesday or Friday nights until further notice.




Race Weekend Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who was able to help with the race this weekend.  Hosting races requires a lot of support and volunteers.  Thanks to our U16’s who helped with course crew, Forerunning, and tear down of the venue after the race.   I really appreciate all of the parents who were able to help all weekend.  It takes all of us working together to make this program work.

Congratulations to our kids this weekend.  They all have been working hard and they are improving their skills.

The Schedule for this week: 3/20,3/21

Saturday 8am-3pm GS

Sunday 8am- 3pm GS

The weather is dictating how much terrain will be  open and if we have the depth to set gates.  Please be patient with the coaches as we are trying to get as much training for the kids as we can.

USSA Race Weekend 2/13 2/14

We will be hosting our annual USSA race next weekend Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday will be Slalom and Sunday GS

I will need everyone to help on both Days.  We held a TMH cup today with a very limited staff.  We can not have a limited staff next weekend.  I will have everything staged Friday so that everything will be on the hill.  I need people to be there Saturday morning ready to go at 7 am.  We will load the Blue Ridge express at 7am. We need to have a crew that will set the bamboo, ribbon, B-net, timing wire, and carry gates for the course setters.  I need gate judges, hand timers, course crew, and assistants for the start and finish.  I have talked to some of you about assignments already.  This is a all hands on deck event.  Please email me to sign up for jobs.


Thank you to those that were there today to help with our TMH cup.

We will practice Wednesday night 5 pm to 8 pm SL.


Practice 2/3/16- 2/7/16

Practice schedule for this week is as follows:

Wednesday SL Conquest 5-8pm

Friday         SL  Conquest 5-8pm

Saturday GS (TMH CUP)   Conquest 8-3
