Dear Northstar Ski & Snowboard Team Parents,
Time for us to spring forward! Hard to believe that this Sunday is Daylight Savings already! Please remember to set your clocks ahead so everyone can arrive to Team on time and to registration if your athlete is participating in the "Big G" race at Northstar this weekend. The resort should be bustling this weekend with all the athletes participating in the race. We wish our team athletes the best of luck!
A big event on our radar is our End of Season Party! It will be taking place on March 15th and will be fun for the whole family. Be sure to check out the details below. We have extended the registration deadline to this Friday, March 7th at 3pm so make sure you register. You don't want to miss it!
Just a heads up that next Thursday, March 13 we will not be sending out a newsletter.
If you have any immediate questions after reading the newsletter please email me at Lheller@vailresorts.com. Responding directly from this newsletter will delay the answers to questions you may have as it will sit in an unattended mailbox.
See you out there!
