The Latest On the Ely Race

Posted by David Kask on Dec 08 2004 at 04:00PM PST
The Ely race will be happening at Giant's Ridge due to a loss of snow up here. We are in the freezing rain belt these days. Giant's Ridge has plenty of snow in the woods as they received much more than we did this last week. They have tracks set and it's good enough for good skis. So, after much ado here is the final plan: Place: Giant's Ridge - park your buses behind the Lodge parking lot (the lot nearest the road that we use for Sections and State). If this fills up then use the south parking lot at the far opposite end by the Burnt Onion (beginning of Oslo trail). Time: 11:00- start order will be Boy's varsity, Girls varsity, Boy's JV, Girls JV, Boys J.High, Girls J.High Technique: John preferred classic as his stadium isn't set up yet and he has to move big piles of man-made snow around. Course: We will use the M.E. Invite/State Meet course as it's in really good shape; Junior High will go up the Gold, down the Cedar but instead of the hairpin will go straight on home to the stadium. Varsity/JV will be 5 K, J. High 3 K. Trail passes: competitors don't need Giant's Ridge trail passes and coaches ski for free. Everyone else needs a trail pass. Coaches' Meeting: 10:00 in the timing building. Paula
