Here we go!

You've now got your first week under your belt and hopefully you have your classes worked out. It's time to start thinking about skiing or at least ski training!

We'll be having our first organizational meeting this coming Wednesday at 4pm in AG 5030. Come with your excitement and any friends who might be interested in skiing.

We'll go over some basics of the team, changes that have been made in the training/racing schedule since last year and other stuff.

If you have any questions please let us know, uwski@yahoo.com.

We'll see you there!

Getting back into school and training!

It's that time of year when the days of rest, tedious jobs and lonesome training are over.

Some of you dread the return to school with it's stress and schedule. Some of you are extremely excited to see friends, work on your sexy mind and have training partners. Regardless of which side of the issue you sit school has started.

Hopefully you had a great summer of training and are coming back into fall ready to rock! Some of you will have done as much or more training than you hoped but most of you will find that somehow the summer slipped away from you and despite your best efforts to stay focused your training log doesn't show the hours you wanted. That's all in the past now and now is the time to evaluate your plan for the fall and go forward from there.

We will be meeting individually with anyone who wants during the first fews weeks of the semester. This meeting can help you evaluate your summer training and find a plan for your fall training.
