We can’t stress enough the importance of having your children in the appropriate racing gear to better enhance the learning and development of their technique and skills.
To help you ensure your kids are getting what they need for the upcoming season, Lone at the Rental Shop has offered to get you set up.
She will be putting in an order for the Team Fairmont families, but you have to have your order ASAP! If you need help identifying exactly what you need, be sure to contact us and we can advise you in what to purchase.

To wrap up a fantastic season we want to remind you about our final day of training and fun!
This Saturday, March 17th, parents be sure to have your skis and race legs tuned so as to avoid complete humiliation as your children beat you to the finish! Our annual Kids vs. Parents ski race will be held in the morning after some warmup runs for the team (and yourselves!).
Training begins in the morning as per usual.
Kids vs. Parents Race begins: 1:00 PM.
Following the race and awards, at about 3:30 we’ll be in the lodge for the wrap up. The deck grill will be hot and ready, just be sure to bring your favourite BBQ items and sides.
Thanks everyone and see you Saturday!

We’re almost through our first month of the 2017/18 season and we are so pleased with the enthusiasm and progress that this team has demonstrated, even so early on. We’re off to a great start!
That said, it’s become clear, particularly on a weekend such as we had last week – with hard, slick and fast conditions – that while the enthusiasm may be full on… the condition of the kids’ skis is, frankly, disappointing.
A quick but vigorous and fierce reminder: along with the helmets, face warmers, and Little Hotties, we cannot stress enough, how INTEGRAL it is to your child’s preparation each weekend to have PROPERLY TUNED – EDGES FINELY SHARPENED FOR RACE TRAINING!!! – skis!
If you are at all reticent in tuning your child’s skis, in need of a refresher or just looking for some really good step-by-step guidance, please be sure to review the helpful videos below. They should be able to take you properly from start to finish. We are also ALWAYS available for questions or advice, if you need it. Just ask!
Even better, if you don’t have the confidence or time to do it yourself, the lovely Peter Harding has offered $12.50/pair to sharpen; $5.00/pair to wax. Drop off Sunday to have ready for the next Saturday.
We look forward to seeing the enthusiasm and progress continue through the season… while Chris, Paul and Gary look forward to ridding themselves of pesky 5 o’clock shadows WITH YOUR CHILDREN’S SKIS!!!
