I hope everyone is enjoying their winter and looking forward to ski season.Training for the programs will not start until Dec 10th.

Yukon Freestyle has a lunch room at Mt. Sima for our athletes to use during the days of training. The athletes are able to put their bags in the trailer, eat and warm up in the trailer. There is a microwave as well, so the athletes can heat up their lunches. There is no running water and no bathroom in the trailer, so athletes will need to use the lodge for this. Athletes are encouraged to bring a lunch to training, as the lunch line is normal busy and coaches will not be waiting for athletes that are buying lunches this year. Mt sima has also asked that our athletes not use the lodge to eat in, as there is a limited capacity. Athletes will not be able to store their gear in the trailer, as it will not be left open after the hill is closed and the code for the locks will not be given out.

Mt. Sima would like parents to know that the parking in front of the trailer and long the staff lodge is for staff only, and that parents can park on the backside of the freestyle trailer.

On snow training starts at 11 AM and runs until 4PM. Please make sure your athlete arrives at least 15 minutes prior to 11AM so they are ready to be on the snow by 11AM. If your athlete will be late or will not be at training, please make sure to text your athletes coach to let them know. Should your athlete arrive late, please have them wait at the bottom of the hill for the their coach. The programs finish at 4 PM, but often the athletes are still making their way down the slopes, but please make sure you or who ever is picking up your athlete are there on time, as the coaches are not expected to stay after 4 PM.
