    *There will be a second SG (entry fee already included) if weather day is not needed.  This second SG will be seeded by USSA points.  All other events will be seeded by the seeding sent out by Sherri.

    Jeremy Ueland (Head Coach) BSSEF
    Roy Loman WMRT
    Will Bradford BSF
    Graham Foster MSEF

    *athletes will only be paying for 3 coaches expenses, not 4.  Two clubs will assist in the sharing of this additional cost.  

Cost:  This is an estimated cost due prior to race departure and is based on 12 athlete/3 coach participation.  This will change depending on actual athlete attendance and real costs, which will be reconciled once all receipts are turned in and expenses are accounted for.  Adjustments will then be made accordingly.  Please note that Coaches’ expense includes per diem (food) and their portion of lodging.  Coaches’ transportation covers the cost of getting coaches to the race and back, meaning this cost is not optional.  All athletes pay for this regardless of how they get to the race series.  Whether or not the coach will have room in the vehicle for athletes must be handled through the coach.  This is a Championship event, so athletes are required to lodge as a team.  Administrative expenses are necessary to cover office expenses (paper, postage, Internet, fax, telephone, etc.) throughout the season and wax costs cover divisional wax orders and inventories.  Entries, Lifts and Lodging are self-explanatory.

Lodging:  Town Square Inn,  http://www.townsquareinns.com/elk-country/

Athletes lodge with team for championship events.  For cost reasons, just as in High School events, athletes will be lodged to share beds.  The rooms we have reserved are family lofts – regular hotel rooms (2 queens plus a loft with a queen).  Roll-a-ways have been requested and may be available depending on demand.  There is a big event happening at Snow-King the weekend of this event, but the Hotel has assured us they do their best to keep noise levels down and accommodate all their guests.  No meals except banquet are included in this estimate.  Bubba’s is located right next door and open early for breakfast.  Part of the experience is the team dining together, so parents please wait for Jeremy’s instruction as it relates to meals, team meetings and waxing.

Parents: The race venue at JHMR is not viewable from the bottom of the mountain, and uphill traffic is not permitted.  Discounted family tickets will be available at 30% off on race days.  Parents can ride the Teewinot lift without skis on Wed-Friday for like $5 - this gets you to SG finish.  You do have to ski to get to the tech finish, however.  

Go to this website for more info https://jhskiclub.org/u16champs and this one for banquet tickets for parents https://jhskiclub.org/u16champs/banquet  Most likely, first come, first served….
