Update #7: Week One--Sunday, November 11, 2018
Here we go! Cold temps have arrived. Snow is being made. Life is good. We have a busy week ahead already, and an action-packed fourteen-week season scheduled. Know that the website is updated continuously so please check our website first if you have any questions. If you can’t find the answer to your question there, send me an email or give me a call. Hopefully we will be adding the full on-snow schedule in the next day or two. We are waiting to hear back from Hyland about our lane and practice assignments. For now, our race schedule is posted. I will be sending additional messages this week with important information and instructions about various topics:
Concussion Baseline Testing –Make Up Test Tomorrow at Southwest

If you can’t make it tomorrow, you can pick up your pass during Hyland’s posted business hours. Tell the clerk that you are from the Minneapolis Alpine Ski Team and that you are there to pick up your season pass. If you purchased your pass through MAST, your name will be in the system under the MAST account.

No cooking allowed tomorrow…. Chipotle is on the menu. Attached is a MAST Chipotle Flyer that you can either print and turn in with your order or store on your phone and show at check out. MAST earns 33% from all sales associated with MAST between 5 and 9pm. Please encourage all your friends and family and enemies to eat out. We are dining at the Edina location on York Ave South (across the street from Southdale and across the parking lot from Cub Foods). Eat before or after you pick up your season pass…. It is virtually on the way.
City Kids Java Fundraiser
Just 2 weeks left to raise money for your ski season. City Kid Java coffee is locally roasted in small batches in NE Minneapolis and is good coffee (coming from a coffee drinker).
The coffee, cocoa and chocolate-covered espresso beans make perfect gifts for the holiday season! Order forms will be available on Monday night at Season Pass Pick Up Night at Hyland Hills or feel free to print from the link on the MAST website.
Order forms and money will be collected at practice Monday, November 26th and orders will be available for pick-up and delivery Saturday, December 1st at Fuller Park Rec Center.

Dryland Training This Week--Tuesday Through Friday, 4:30-6PM at the Washburn Stadium
Although Hyland is making snow, it does not appear that they will be opening over the next five days. We will certainly learn more tomorrow when we are picking up passes at Hyland. Dryland training begins Tuesday and will continue through Friday unless Hyland opens sometime this week. DRYLAND TRAINING is what we do when we can't ski: we engage in strength and conditioning drills to improve your strength, agility, speed, and endurance. Be prepared to work both indoors and outdoors. Wear athletic shoes and clothing. Make sure you dress in layers of warm clothing and wear a hat and gloves. BRING A WATER BOTTLE. There is no water available at the stadium.
BE SURE YOU ATTEND ALL DRYLAND TRAINING SESSIONS. UNLESS YOU ARE IN COLORADO SKIING, DRYLAND TRAINING IS NOT OPTIONAL. IN ADDITION TO ENGAGING IN CONDITIONING WORKOUTS, WE WILL BE HOLDING IMPORTANT TEAMS MEETINGS EACH DAY.
Are You Cleared To Practice?
I will send out a roster tomorrow with a list of everyone who has been cleared to participate by their Athletic Director. Check to see that your name is on this list. If it isn’t, check with your Athletic Director to see what you are missing. It might be as simple as a signature or you may be missing a form. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO PRACTICE IF THEY ARE NOT CLEARED TO PARTICIPATE.
Give To The MAX
The Minneapolis Alpine Ski Team is a 501c3 non-profit and participates in Give to the Max. Please consider making a contribution if you have the means. You will be receiving a separate email with more information in the next day or two. Thank you for your support.
See you all tomorrow at Hyland.
