Alpine Skiing - Slalom at Gunstock Mountain Resort - January 31, 2018

In the fourth NEPSAC Qualifier race, Dublin School athletes competed against skiers from Brewster Academy, Proctor Academy and New Hampton School at Gunstock Mountain.

A number of athletes did not finish, the steep ice conditions took a toll on the results of the day.

Difficult conditions caused several holds on the course, over 50% of the field did not finish. Dublin school athletes were prepared and ski racing is a tough sport with many variables. 

The New Outing Club

The New Outing Club

In locating the new Slopeside Dormitory, we had to remove the old Arts Building which served in recent years as our Outing Club. The Outing Club was home to our Mountain Biking, Nordic Skiing, Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding programs.  We originally intended to put the new Outing Club into the basement of the Slopeside Dormitory but thought better due to the impact on the height of the building and the potential for fumes and fire from ski waxing.

Alpine Skiing at Mammoth Mountain Summer Ski Camp

Alpine team finished their slalom mode of our training and are moving into our Giant Slalom progression sessions. The training lanes have been excellent. All athletes have been testing and running the new Völkl equipment and are finding it to be quit nice.
With a lot of snow and great training we headed down to the natural Mammoth hot springs to kick back after a short workout.
 
Tonight we are took Silas Howe out to a birthday dinner. As we moved from birthday dinner to relaxation by the fire and Silas doing a birthday dance on stage, we got back to business today. Giant slalom skis ran well and as you can see skiing was not so bad either.
