Noschoolrider that is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!

Going to be setting some training courses for myself and interested local alpine riders after I am through ski coaching. Hoping to start next weekend!

Sounds good DW. We have a full weekend of ski racing this weekend. Sessions will likely be from 2:30 to 4. I have access to gates (will probably set stubbies) and will need to get space on the training matrix. I'll put the call out as here as soon as i get the first session scheduled. Will be very informal but will be a great time getting some local alpine riders together to hammer some plastic!
