MAST Update Week Three
Sunday, November 26, 2023
Good Evening MAST Families:
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. Hyland is blowing thousands of gallons of water into the air every hour as they try to make as much snow as possible during this cold stretch. I received word this morning that they will be closed Monday through Thursday this week and that we should watch for an announcement later in the week regarding their plans for opening. I remain optimistic that they will open on Friday, December 1. If they do, we will ski both Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday morning.
I. Dry-land Training Continues Monday through Thursday.
4:30-6PM at Washburn Stadium. Bring a jacket, hat, gloves, athletic shoes, layers of athletic clothing with shorts underneath in case we ending up training inside the school for part or all of the session. And don’t forget a water bottle.
II. Apparel IS Ready For Pick UP!!!
If you ordered MAST Apparel, it is ready pick up TOMORROW. PLEASE PICK UP your apparel at the end of dry-land training on Monday, November 27th. Everyone should be attending dry-land, so there should be no apparel orders to re-load into Coryn’s car at 6:10PM tomorrow night.
Thank you to Coryn Petersen for working with the captains to produce and manage our apparel sale this year. Coryn has done a magnificent job.
III. LAST CALL: Giants Ridge Camp
If you are planning on attending, please register THIS WEEK. Registration will close at 11:59PM on Friday, December 1.

IV. Supplemental Training #1: Saturday, December 2, 2:30-10:30PM.
Our first Supplemental Training Session will be held on Saturday, December 2 at Wild Mt. This could be our first, second or third training session on-snow, depending on when Hyland opens. Consequently, we will be doing more directed free skiing than gate training. Nonetheless, we hope to be able to set some short sectional drill courses of brushes, stubbies, and panel gs gates.
Cost: $60 includes bus transportation, coaching, and lift ticket. Bring a water bottle and a sack supper. (We take a short break for supper. We do not want you spending time waiting in line to order ski area dinner so bring your own supper.)

V. Sunday, December 3, 7PM: Parent Race Worker Training Webinar
Parents: please attend the race worker training on Sunday, Dec 3 at 7PM via Zoom. This training is designed to introduce you to the various race worker roles that parents will be asked to fill at every race of our season and give you some baseline skills to get started. Please set this time aside and join the training so we can provide our athletes with high quality race experiences.

VI. Sunday, December 10, 4-7PM: Parent Social at Dual Citizen Brewery
Save the Date. Details to come.
We will be skiing soon. Keep up the hard work in dryland. We will continue to work on developing the six fundamental skills of ski technique off the snow so that these skills will come more easily to you once we get on snow.
