Larch Hills Chalet Expansion Update

The work on the Chalet Expansion is moving along in preparation for this coming ski season. The new facility should be ready for occupancy soon. Many things have happened in the past few weeks. The indoor painting is now complete, the deck railing is installed, outside metal stairs are in place, concrete pad for the entrance is poured, the new windows are installed in the old chalet, the soffits and siding are almost installed and the roof for the outdoor waxing area is just about finished. 
 
The Chalet Expansion Committee is very excited with the progress that has taken place. Many volunteers and businesses have been working hard to complete all of these jobs. Everyone’s contributions are so very much appreciated!

Yard Work

Thanks to all who have hired out the skiers for yard work over the last month. They have been kept very busy and have been putting a lot of money in the Nationals trip account. If you still need yard work done, we are now booking into the second weekend in June. Contact Abbi abbimay71@yahoo.com if you would like to hire some hard working kids to do some work around your home.

Funding Support Acknowledgement

The Larch Hills Junior ski team would like to acknowledge Cross Country Canada and the Women’s Committee for their support in funding our head coach, Abbi May to attend the Learning to Compete On-snow level coaching course this past month in Whistler. Three Larch Hills coaches attended this 4 day long course where they learned advanced coaching skills including technique adaptations for speed and efficiency, race strategy and tactical skills and protocols for monitoring training and recovery. Athletes in the juvenile and older categories have already begun a new training season and the coaches are working to apply their newly acquired knowledge to this coming year’s program.
