Thank you everyone that came out for training this past weekend! The conditions were great!

Great improvement with skiing a clean, power, line. Some are still struggling with choosing too straight a line that blocks them from carving down the fall line into the gate! Getting closer though. Keep working at it! Good inspection, look ahead!

Race preparation if vital for a good performance. Have a plan for your day and commit to it! During the race there is no need to look for new advice on your technique. Advice about the course condition is always helpful though. Focus on your race and block everything else out. Have your own preparation area. Music or a meditation app is always helpful to relax and block others out from your preparation. There are more races this weekend for many! Good luck ! Have fun!

Today we had Combi training! The guys were flying! Great skiing! It did snow today! No rain! Lucky!

Monday GS

A fun day with with a kids group today! GS on #3. They did a great job on their goals for the day! Much higher line on the steep slopes and of course better power down the fall line to the gate!

Look who is jumping the highest!

Weekend Update!

It was a good weekend! Saturday's snow was icy! Good training! Saturday night it rained and then froze slightly for the morning. The ruts of the course were not smooth but chunky! Not the best conditions today, but the group did well to ski through it. Nice work !

I heard good race results from many. I am proud of all of you! I look forward to seeing you soon! Have a great week!

Mid week up date!


It has been a great week so far! Mixed weather. Cold since the weekend,when it rained. So yes, the snow is icy now. It did snow yesterday so there is a soft layer on top of it. The rut should be very fast though. So please have your skis sharpened for the weekend.

We have trained 2 days of Super G. It was great! Even the adults took part. It is always a little scary if you are not use to the speed but a great experience! The group did great!

Sunny day today! SL training is scheduled. GS tomorrow.

See you soon!

Super G Update

Today was our first day training Super G! The snow was soft so it was perfect for our first day. Slower speeds to start, but after a few runs we worked down to the ice! Fast rut!

Tomorrow we have the same schedule. Another sunny day so the conditions should be great!

See you soon!

Great conditions at Sugadaira!

Hi everyone,

The weather here has been beautiful and the snow hard. Great for training!

Last weekend was good too. Thanks for all of you that came to ski with us! We appreciate you all very much!

I have heard of good race results from many different racers. Great work! Some maybe did not get the results they wanted and are feeling down. It is always important to look at your race performance and see why you did not reach your goal. Be sure to learn from your mistakes or experiences! You can do it!

See you all soon!

In your mind see what you want. Be positive!

Sugadaira Update!

The conditions here have been amazing all week. Sunny but cool, Hard compact snow, smooth courses, great skiing from the group! I am very proud of everyone. Steady improvement. Skiing a higher line has helped many. I have also witnessed more power on the out side ski, in the right place! Around and down the fall line!

I would like to send a message that new comer racers are always welcome! We offer a safe, positive, environment for all ages to train in. It is a team atmosphere, where we all work together. We respect each other as team mates. Canadian style!

Hope to see you soon! Good luck to those racing soon! I believe in all of you!
