April already?! The season is winding down – almost! As this season ends, next season starts now! (think: Alpine ski racing – a year-round commitment.) We have a lot going on; USSA meetings, Spring training projects, Summer training opportunities, getting our engines tuned up for the coming season – physical building blocks, that can transform your skiing!
Hello Team Afton,
We had a great season-end race this past weekend at Afton Alps! Thank you Afton Alps for all the help, and thanks to all the volunteers, coaches, and kids who made the weekend terrific!
Practice on today and tomorrow (Wednesday-Thursday). Arrive 3:30, we will go 4-6.
wednesday: however, with the dehydration machine (wind), we will be limited to Chair 7 for training (SL only). Even if the wind were to calm - there's not enough snow pushed into the unload ramps to run the other chairs. They will be repairing the other ramps today and tomorrow. See you at 3:30
Afton Alps is CLOSED. We will resume with a MODIFIED schedule tomorrow, Wednesday, March 8th. Afton Alps will be going to daylight hours of operation only. Our training option is to arrive at 3:30, on-snow 4-6. This Saturday, March 11th, we will arrive at 9am, on-snow 9:30-12n, with free-ski option until 1pm. It is also Spring Fling this weekend at Afton Alps, check out the news: http://www.aftonalps.com/events/events/spring-fling

How Du! This is what the week looks like for Team Afton.
Crunch time Team Afton!
Giant GS weekend just wrapped up – with our second Junior Champs qualifying round. A great weekend for Team Afton. A word on qualifying…. Quotas – how to approach it? “what do I need to do to qualify?!” We will be publishing a few more thoughts on this subject this week for our U14s and U16s families. Keep a look out.

Gruss Gott! This is what the week looks like for Team Afton.
Lots happening Team Afton! Speed weekend just wrapped up – with our first Junior Champs qualifying round today (Monday). Team Afton was juiced up (thanks to Juice-Man Doug and the Base Camp1) and threw it down. Some thrills, some spills, some green faces…but all-in-all a great showing.
Howdy! This is what the week looks like for Team Afton.
Hope you all had a good weekend - with practice for a lot of you, but a certain few chose to race in a foreign place (Illinois?!?!). That's right we had a small band of adventurers who drove down to Galena, IL and raced at Chestnut Mtn. Lots of thrills we understand, including some stellar race performances (Dean-o-rama) along with a noteworthy sendy-moment that we understand made it all the way to Jerry-of-the-Day on Instagram - way to go Andrew, you're famous! https://www.instagram.com/p/BP03HrKgzkL/
Hi Everyone! This is what the week looks like for Team Afton.
Hope you all had a blast this weekend at Buck Hill! If you were not at Buck Hill, then you certainly missed out on a great race. The Rising Stars were fantabulous, and the head2head competition was a super-thrill-ride. Below is the schedule for the week for Associates, Rising Stars, USSA, and FIS.
