Sugadaira update

Hi! It was a good week. We started pole training from Monday. We did do basic training mixed in with that though.

So far just #4,5,6 are open.

Accel has three new Tea Clipper staff this year. From Left to right. Tama, Takahiro, and Chihiro!
They have been very help full already. We welcome all guests and aim for a fun and very success full season.

Bye for now.

Dec,20 Update


What a great morning! We are skiing GS today. The condition are very good. Tsubakuro has the Champion course open that is runs 4,5,6. The free ski run is also open and they are working on 1,2,3. I am pushing the ski area to use #6 for the weekend. Free skiing and GS gates are planned.

We have all been working hard on doing basic position training. I am happy to see how all want to improve in this area. Which you should. Once you all can do this you will be able to ski faster in the course and have a bigger chance to win.

The pictures are from Canada. Makaiya went to an out side Birthday party.

Bye for now.

Dec, 14 Update


It was a great week for basic training . All that came did very well!

It was a warm week and it even rained yesterday. It did cool down a little bit, so the snow was a little icy.

They were also able to make snow today. That is very much needed.

I am looking forward to another weekend of basic training!

See you all soon!

Sugadaira update


I am settling in here. Getting some tune up work done and so on.

It has been great skiing during the week of course not many other people on the hill. What snow there is , is very good! And just so you know it is suppose to cool off for the weekend so sharpen up those skis.

I am very happy with everyones drive to get the basics grooved into their technique. That is what we want. Lets all expect great results for the season. Expect you will win! Or finish in the top ten.
Picture me as your fairy god father and ask me what you want and I will give it to you!!!! Just ask! I believe in every one of you!

See you soon

First weekend update

Hello Every one!

I was very surprised to see over 20 people here for the first weekend! It was good training. We all worked on Basic position on the skis. Stacking, edging from the ankles, light pressure. All pretty much accomplished the goal of stacking! It was pretty to see!! Great job to those who came. All drills were done at very slow speed.. That is very important for position correction!

It is also nice to see the friendly staff of Zonntaggu! I am looking forward to watching you all improve to new levels of ski racing! Believe and see your new found success!

Bye for now.
