Amazing snow conditions!

We had such a great day today. Icy snow all day! We had around 10 racers today. GS. A great day because many racers were able start a carving , power turn from the rise line. They were flying! Nice work!

March 23 Update

Amazing how fast the season has flown by! A little over a week left of the season in Sugadaira. I really appreciate all of the racers that choose to train with us! Thank you very much! Also, there is a lot of behind the scenes preparation done for our training. Miho Takasawa does it all so well. Great work!

Tomorrow is SL training. It is cool and cloudy so the snow condition is very good! Icy for most of the morning. Super for this time of year.

Big races coming up. Good Luck to all taking part!

See you soon !

March 14 Up date

Hi all!

More snow falling in Sugadaira! Under the new snow is ice though. Great conditions ! Over the weekend we had great training! Not a very big group so all had many runs! The Super G training really has helped everyone's GS. Better line and power going into the gate.

Speaking of line, a gentleman asked me " Doug I skied a high line but my time was slow." I asked" what was the set, and terrain like?" "Well it was flat and a simple set." If the set is straight you ski it straight! You match what ever the course gives you. Full power always, but your edging is always determined by snow conditions ,slope, and the set!

This week is early training. Lift starts from 7 am! SL tomorrow!

See you soon!

Hot day! SL trainiing!

A hot spring day! The SL training was good though. We used snow cement so the snow was hard! The group did well with their goals. They are really starting to fly! Fun to see! Looks like it is going to cool down again. We need it1 The snow has been melting too fast!

Super G training is scheduled for the weekend. The snow maybe icy so be ready for it.

Great results this past week end many wins and personal bests! Very proud of all of you!

Great support from Miho Takasawa! She has really done a great job to uplift the racers. Many great results at Naeba! Super!
