Seasonal Programs Bulletin

01/11/2017

Greetings Seasonal Programs Families,

We had a great weekend and were excited to see an awesome turn out! Most of our groups have formed and the focus is shifting to setting goals for the season - new trails, improved technique, increased endurance, better awareness and, of course, making new friends.

As part of NSAA National Safety Month, our Adventure Blazers participated in a flash mob warm-up on Saturday morning - this was a fun way to remind everyone that it is good practice to spend a few minutes loosening up muscles and getting the blood pumping through the body at the start of the day.

Groups are venturing further afield and participating in more mountain activities as each week goes by - Mt. Ellen, the terrain parks, and the Nastar racecourse are just some of the choices.

All Seasonal Program participants have complimentary use of the Nastar course at Sugarbush, and we request that each child has a competitor number for tracking times and awarding medals. Registration is a simple process at www.nastar.com. If you have forgotten last year's number, it is easy to retrieve from the website by entering your child's first and last name. Many kids put a sticker on their helmet with their Nastar number so that it is easily found at the start gate.

Next weekend we will be celebrating the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday resort-wide. There are various special events planned, including a kid's torchlight parade, pizza and movie nights, s'mores cookouts and fireworks. We look forward to seeing you!

On Saturday January 14th, we have our Blazer après-ski event featuring a skier safety talk by John Egan. Join other families, meet the coaches and enjoy light refreshments while soaking up words from our Chief Officer of Fun. The event will be held in the Blazer Room of the Valley House from 4:00 - 5:00 PM.

See you on the mountain soon,
