Holiday Camp – Part 2

Happy New Year everyone, just want to share the plan for the Holiday Camp part 2 and the first weekend of regular season training. Unfortunately the weather for the next 36 hours does not look good so we will continue to be limited with terrain and hill space. Please note that we will continue to work on Slalom Skills due to these limitations.
