Here it is!
With less then two weeks to go before we meet in Stowe, the weather forecasts have begun to look quite promising! So everybody do your snow dances to ensure the best conditions!
Here are some of the particulars for the ETU.
Friday morning- "Inner Boot Works", on the Mtn Rd, 9am
Benny Wax, bootfitter, will be giving a no-charge seminar on bootfitting, alignment, and performance at his shop. Should you wish to have any work done on your boots, now is a great time to take advantage of his expertise. He is offering a 20% discount to all ETU participants on any boot work done during the ETU.
Friday afternoon- On snow, free skiing or skiing with a videographer, to film you doing specific exercises which will exhibit whether you should have an alignment check or not.(Lift ticket required)
Friday night- The Carriage House, 8pm
This is a casual, no-host gathering, where we will explain in greater detail the schedule for the weekend. We will also have the groups broken up and assigned to the various coaches (on paper).
Saturday morning- The Spruce Lodge Loft,
8am- Here you will meet your coach, your group, collect lift tickets, and prepare to get out on the hill. Breakfast can also be obtained at this location, downstairs from the Loft.
9am- On skis, we will quickly review the placement of all participants in their groups, to ensure appropriate placement.
Then the fun begins! You will ski with your group for the morning, and have lunch at the Midway. If your group was videotaped that morning, then you will view the footage during lunch. The other groups will be videotaped after lunch, for viewing at approx 3:30.
Saturday afternoon- location tba, 4:30
There will be an Apres Ski discussion, done in a panel format, which will allow you to ask questions of the coaching staff, relative to anything on EpicSki, or your own skiing.

Sit down, gourmet dinner. And raffle!
Sunday morning, Spruce Lodge-
Meet with your group/coach, ski till lunch, with an attempt to get all groups videotaped once again. Lunch w/ your group at Midway, and view video. Afternoon groups can watch the video immediately after skiing.
Monday Morning, Spruce Lodge-
Anybody interested in skiing with the coaches for another day, we will offer several different options. The cost of these options is $125, plus a $29 lift ticket. Video will again be done on this day.
Racing- If there is sufficient interest, an introductory "racing101" program will be held. But to hold this option, we need at least 5 participants.
