I just want you to know that the DEC 4th Supplemental Training session is filled and that I have closed registration. We have a full bus. Please remember to wear a mask and to bring a sack supper and water bottle. If you have a ski bag, please use it to transport your skis on Saturday. It looks like we will be able to set gates (stubbies and panels) so bring your protective equipment.
Saturday morning training time change: We do have training on Saturday morning from 8:45 to 11:30am. The website listed the start time as 7:45 but the calendar on the website listed 8:45am. So I got it half correct.
One final word of encouragement: the coaches are seeing a lot of improvement on the hill. Stay focused on learning the drills and executing them to perfection. We recognize that you would rather be ripping it up, but working the drills to build the fundamentals is the MAST formula for success and it has served us well over the years. But it requires discipline and focus on your part, and a strong embrace of the character trait of "delayed gratification." Ten weeks from now you will understand what I mean by this.
Watch Mikaela Shiffrin's second run at Killington last Sunday. Amazing victory. She tied a record for world cup slalom wins with her victory and she will crush that record by the time her career concludes. Here is a link:

Mikaela got this good by working the drills just like you. She is a fantastic role model.
See you this afternoon.
