Thanks for taking care of this as soon as possible.

Hello Skiers,
Spirit Mountain has opened an area for skiing at the Grand Avenue Nordic Center (GANC).

The GANC ski update is as follows: Groomers and snow makers will be working extensively on Monday and Tuesday to get things pushed out and groom. Some skiing will be available, not sure where and how much, that is depending on work at hand. Please do not expect the full loop to be available and respect the closures. Thank you!

East Varsity Skiers who have a GANC pass or are willing to pay the $5 daily fee and can get to GANC have the option of skiing there for practice. Meet coaches Patti and Mark for ski practice at GANC at 4:15 for attendance outside the chalet. Plan to skate ski.

All other East skiers will meet at East at 3:45 to run as we have been doing.

Reminder: If you haven’t filled out the Skier Profile on the website ( this year, please do so. That is what is used to make up the Team roster that is sent to the East A.D. office.

Note: Today, Sunday, is the last day to order a Team Jacket. Jacket order information can be found on the Team website in the News and Announcement Section.
