Good morning everyone,

Today Sunday River will turn blue and gold! The entire Gould community will invade upon the ski area to watch and cheer on our alpine racers in the NEPSAC competitions. They will be skiing in slalom and giant slalom races. Wish the skiers fast races! The boys basketball and prep snowboarding teams also have competitions tomorrow, good luck to them.
Last weekend in Stowe, VT the nordic team raced at an Eastern cup/Supertour/Carnival. There were hundreds of competitiors ranging from high schoolers to top college racers to olympians.
The race course was an exciting and challenging one- full of tricky downhill corners and fierce uphill climbs. We also contended with some crazy weather on Sunday, we had everything- rain, snow, sun and sleet. This made for some difficult waxing conditions, but our coaches did a great job. The weekend was a perfect chance for each of us to learn and develope.

Today the nordic team will have a fun day of long, relaxed skiing at Mt. Blue State Park. Afterwards we are going to the Shifrin’s house for dinner.
See you next week,
Alice H
