Snow alters Wes Barron schedule
Schedule update: Here are Saturday’s schedules.
The startlists are up on Live Timing: https://www.imdalpine.org/alpine/races18/
As most of the country, we here in Jackson are getting some snow as well. We set up first layer of B-net yesterday and we are planning to finish up preparation tomorrow by noon. We are expecting 8-15 inches from now until Saturday morning and Saturday we should have cloudy with snow showers. Sunday and Monday we will also have snow on and off, but not much precipitation.
Attached is Saturday proposed schedule and race announcement. There are couple changes from previous years. Friday we will have TC meeting at 7pm in Gabe room, we will be using Sweetwater gondola in the morning to load athletes, due to weather forecast we might have to go with controlled free ski run on Saturday, we will not offer training run or controlled free ski on Sunday or Monday.
We will do everything to make this series success, but be ready for challenging conditions and changes in schedule.
Travel safe and see you all tomorrow at 7pm
Take the SVSEF/BRASS survey
Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF) and the Bryce & Ronnie Athlete Snow Safety Foundation (BRASS) have created a survey to gather more data on in-bounds, backcountry and sidecountry skiing and riding habits of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership:
This survey is designed for athletes, coaches, parents, race officials and administrators of all disciplines that are 12 years of age and older.
The goal of this survey is to generate data surrounding skiing and riding habits in-bounds and out of bounds. This information will help us create better coaches education tools surrounding avalanche awareness, as well as a more detailed athlete curriculum.
Participation in this survey is imperative to helping us create more educational tools/programs for U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership moving forward.
Thank you for taking the time to answer this survey. If you have any feedback about this survey or any additional comments on avalanche awareness for ski/snowboard athletes please feel free to email Lindsay Mann at Lmann@svsef.org.

Greetings Intermountain U14 Athletes!

Here is the signup announcement: 2019 U14 IMD Speed Project Announcement updated
The target group is the first year U14, Year of Birth 2006. This type of project has been valuable for older athletes for a while and it is now time to offer such an opportunity to younger athletes. The main goal is to introduce athletes to the elements associated with skiing in speed events, building their confidence, and developing your skill set to ensure your enjoyment and performance.
Divisional/Regional Projects are offered in a progression of experiences over the duration of your junior racing career. This project introduces the athletes to the Intermountain Division/Western Region Development process with important instruction on skill development at the U14 level and continues through your ski-racing journey.
This project is designed to focus on bringing the IMD U14 athletes and coaches together to enhance their skill development, and to expand their network of fellow ski racers.
We are excited to host this project at Grand Targhee on Jan 25-27, 2019.
Please contact your direct coach prior to registration. A prerequisite would be for the athlete to have competed in the IMD Champs last season, or similar event if new to IMD.
