Yesterday was a big day for SMS T2. In the morning, the team kept themselves busy by shattering course records and PRs on the 2-mile uphill run test. Sophie and Simi both set the women’s and men’s records, coming in at 13:11 and 11:40, respectively. In the meantime, Ben, Annie P., Annie H., and Erika all set personal records for the time trial. Check out photos and times on the SMS junior blog here.
In the afternoon, the team headed down to the Stratton Mountain Resort parking lot to set up an agility course and drills with the juniors. One of the primary goals of the team is to cultivate a strong skiing culture with kids around Stratton, and one way of doing that is training with and coaching local kids several times a week. Yesterday, we had a group of kids ages 10-19 practicing their skills with the pros. It was chilly and rainy, but that didn’t stop the group from having a good time.
