Alpine March Newsletter



It’s that time of year to start celebrating the successes of the Alpine Program and give our appreciation! 

Athletes: I want to give a huge shout out to all the athletes in the Alpine program! At each age group from U8-FIS we have had an athlete on the top step of the podium! Impressive skiing and improvements were seen by all parents at the parent/athlete dual at Snow King! Then a few days before on March 8th the final day of U18 Nationals on home soil, Mattias Wilson won the SG held at JHMR and took the U18 National Champion Title with the overall! 

Coaches: The Alpine Program is lucky to have one of the best coaching staffs out there! We have a large staff of dedicated hard-working individuals that care greatly about developing great ski racers and even better humans! We have a couple teams finishing the season this week and on the other hand have the FIS team who still have 5 weeks of racing left. Don’t forget to thank our coaches next time you see them! 

Volunteers: I don’t know where to begin when it comes to thanking our parent and community volunteers. The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club hosts many races, and we ultimately wouldn’t be able to without the hard working and generous folks that call Jackson home! The athletes, coaches, program directors, admin and board genuinely appreciate and value the hours spent in the timing room, out on the hill and especially our hand timers! ;) You all rock and thank you! 

Race Staff: Sean Hines (Race Director) & Dani Decker (Race Administrator) have done a phenomenal job this season! I truly can’t thank the two of them enough! The jobs they do are not always visible but there is so much behind the scenes work that goes into having a race run smoothly! Long days setting bnet, splicing timing wire, creating race files and so much more. Thank you! 

Parents: Thank you!
