Team Fairmont Racers important reminders

Expectations to Ensure Success!

Hi Team!

Last weekend was a great start to the 2019 season and we’re looking forward to a great year watching your youngsters expand their skills and develop into more confident, competent skiers.

Just a re-cap from Gary’s meeting at the end of the day on Saturday.

  1. All groups will be departing the Snow School sign at 10:30 sharp. Instructors will NOT be waiting for late-comers. If you are late, your child will have to catch up to us on the hill.
  2. We cannot say enough about the importance of preparedness, particularly when it comes to gear. For your child to progress as per the Team Fairmont goals, it’s SO important that your skier is outfitted with the appropriate gear. If you’re unclear as to what that entails, please read more HERE.
  3. In addition to appropriate equipment, it is VITAL that skis are properly tuned for racing. This will be different than the typical tuning performed in the rental shop. If you’d like more information about proper tuning technique, please stick around after skiing, 4pm on Saturday, January 12, as Gary will be providing a hands-on clinic. You can also refer to this video for a step-by-step guide.
  4. A calendar item: The Kimberley Nancy Green Festival, two full days of racing fun, will be taking place January 26 and 27, 2019.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to talk to Chris or Gary. They’re happy to help!
