Super G Camp at Stratton in VT this week!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Posting this for a friend who is one of the coaches.  Speed Freak with some time?  AWESOME deal!

ATTENTION EVERYONE!! Speedsters and everyone who likes to ski race (no matter how fast you go or want to go)!! The Super G we’ve all been waiting for is coming up! For years we have all thought that a Super G at Stratton would be excellent! And now we have finally made it happen! The race will be on Standard, under the Gondola.  The terrain is perfect, plenty of space, full exposure to the valley for maximum visual effect! You start on the steeps at the top and roll to a giant gliding runout on the bottom. As one of our racers put it “Just think of it.  The chance to run full out on Standard on a perfectly prepared run that has been literally reserved only for you.  Even if you fall, you’re just going to slide and hit nothing!”
 
Does it get any better? Well actually it does… If you haven’t run Super G for a while (whether a year or ten, or more) or if you’ve never run Super G, you might be feeling a little intimidated by the idea of it. Well fear not, there will be a camp the day before to help you get comfortable. The camp is being run by Stratton Mountain School ’s own Mike Morin. Mike is a former head coach for the US Ski Team and has put together a terrific day. He will be focusing on everything you need to get right into it and have a ball running SG. The camp is a fantastic deal as the $100 fee includes everything: lifts coaching, training runs, video, even lunch!
 
So don’t forget the dates: the camp is Thursday, January 14 and race day is Friday, January 15, 2010. You can register on line through the link on our website (http://nemasters.org/STC_MastersSG_Camp_Race.pdf) or call or email Robbin Gibson at the Stratton Training Center (802-297-4516; rgibson@intrawest.com).
 
This is going to be a banner event but we need to have the numbers to make it workable and something that Stratton will want to continue, so if you’re on the fence, just make the decision to come and join the fun. It will be a blast!
 
And don’t forget that for every friend you bring you will get another chance (and the friend will get a chance also) to win our season end BIG prize, which is just for new racers and those who bring them.
 
Any questions:  call or email Executive Director Jim McKeon (802-558-8557; director@nemasters.org) or President Nadine Price (978-502-3706; nprice@ntp-associates.com)

Would GS skis do for a beginner at speed events?

post #6 of 9
Not recommended, even if they are long (193 ish) your still asking for trouble as the sidecut to give the ski a 27 or 21m radius is aggressive enough that you could hook up easily.

Richie, if you need an SG ski for the Legends DH, I have a pair of Stoeckli 201s that I am prepping right now if you want to borrow em.
