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/

We will try to also organize some opportunities this week when we can send it in a safe environment... But the hill schedule is looking quite limited. If you haven't organized your skis yet, this has been announced for several weeks - time is running out.
