MHRC Member Update

Hello to the whole MHRC Community!

Plans for the coming season are well underway.  There’s a lot of information here, please take a few minutes to scan through it.

Registration

Registration is open and it is filling up fast!  Pre-season pricing ends on September 30 so be sure to sign up soon.

Buy your Glen Eden passes soon – use this link.

To ensure each athlete’s training slots are auto-reserved in Glen Eden’s system, please email your pass number to Juliette LambThis is incredibly important and is the responsibility of each member.  Without doing this we cannot guarantee your time on snow, and lift attendants + snow patrol WILL check for this.

U14+ Competitive Team – Pre-season Mont Tremblant Training Camp

  • Mark your calendars for December 14-18
  • In a return to our pre-covid normal, the on-hill training portion of this years’ camp will be open for U14 and older competitive athletes only. We invite all other athletes and their families to attend socially.
  • The last day of training (Sunday, December 18th, 2022) will be a fun ski day at nearby Mont Blanc
  • Accommodation this year is booked directly with Mont Tremblant, Les Tremblant Suites. Use MHRC’s direct link below (or book over the phone with an agent) so that you get our awesome group rates! Don’t delay on booking your accommodations as they are available on a first come, first served basis and the week we are attending is a busy week so rooms will sell out.
  • Discounted lift tickets for Mont Tremblant can only be purchased by calling a Les Tremblant Suites agent (not available for purchase online) and are only available beginning October 1st, 2022. If you book your own hotel, AirBnB or outside accommodation, you will not be eligible to purchase lift tickets at our discounted rate.
  • Two steps to register:
  • New for 2022 – attend socially even if not U14+: Use our link or call an agent to book discounted accommodations.  Please also be sure to register your family through TeamSnap so that we can include you on communications leading up to the trip.  We will also be setting up a chat or message board, likely through TeamSnap so that families can make arrangements to meet and ski together.  There is no formal schedule or coaching with this option, and no cost to register to attend socially.  Register to attend socially via TeamSnap (social)
