IMD response to early end of 2020 competition season
To all of IMDâ€™s valued members:
As most of you might know, U.S. Ski & Snowboard has put a halt on all sanctioned domestic events beginning on March 16. This includes Tri-Divisionals, U14 Regionals, WRJC, IMD projects and the Snow Cup Finale. While this is sad news, it is imperative that we view this with understanding and compassion as all of us need to do our part in slowing down the transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Here is the Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html
The IMD Championships at Bogus Basin this weekend have also been canceled.
Because of the loss of competitive opportunities, IMD will work hard in the next few months to come up with opportunities in the fall, assuming the world health climate has settled down.
A few housekeeping items:
Be safe, put on your goggles, buff and gloves and go skiing â€¦ it seems like the safest place to be!
