First weekend of YSL training a huge success!

The last week has seen Schweitzer Mountain transform from a single lift hill with one groomed run to a nearly fully open mega-resort with a solid base and tons of new snow on the way! With the opening of both the Great Escape Quad and Stella lifts, SARS was able to begin YSL team training over the weekend. We saw over 100 kids show up on Saturday with another 50 on Sunday. Our coaches were excited to meet their athletes and kick off the season’s training. Of course, with over a foot of snow falling throughout the weekend everyone was excited to ski powder!

YSL training will resume on Friday, December 21st for 3-day athletes and on Saturday the 22nd for 1 and 2-day athletes. Check the training schedule for updated information as the weekend approaches.

And don’t forget that SARS’ 5-day holiday camp kicks off on December 27th, which also marks the first day of the STARS (5-6 year old) program.

Save the dates: New YSL parent meeting, SARS Annual Meeting, and the 2019 SARS Dinner Auction

Three important events for SARS families to put on their calendars: On December 28th Coaches Jamie (SARS head coach), Rebecca (YSL head coach), and Cathy (STARS head coach) will host a new YSL parent orientation meeting at 4:30 pm in the Selkirk event room in the Selkirk lodge (down the hallway from the lobby on the left). This meeting will provide new SARS parents and athletes with important information about the club’s history, mission, what it means to be a SARS family, and the training paths available to young athletes joining the program for the first time.

Immediately following this meeting SARS will host its annual meeting at 5:30 pm in the Selkirk room. The annual meeting is open to all SARS families, who are invited to come hear from the club’s leadership and board members about the last year and the year ahead.

Finally, the annual SARS Dinner Auction is scheduled for Saturday, March 2 at 5:00 pm in the Caribou room at the Lake View Lodge. This is SARS’ premier social event and most important fundraiser of the year. Tickets will go on sale in early January for $50, which includes a gourmet dinner, two drinks, and a fun-filled evening of entertainment and exciting auction items with SARS friends and families! More information about the dinner auction, including how you can help procure items for the auction or volunteer for auction setup or during the auction, can be found here.
