Opening date set for HBM
NEW $340 HBM Season Pass price for SSSC club members
If you want to bring that price down with another $10 you can do so by bringing in clean, in good condition, used pair of snow-pants or jackets (sizes 7-14) to HBM downtown office. They will then take $10 off the already low Season pass price.
The clothing will go towards ski-school kids needing snow attire to safely enjoy the mountain. HBM kindly asking not to bring used ski racing gear.
Please make sure to register with the club prior heading to the HBM office for your season pass.
Convinced Of Your Chances
Over the past 27 years of coaching, it's still this priceless show of emotion that draws me to continue coaching Humanbeings, be it at the Olympic stage or club level.
In my opinion (I'm opinionated) we need to expose the kids (and ourselves as adults) to components and activities in life that will challenge, change, sometimes scare and sometimes deemed impossible by yourself to be able to grow within.
We need to keep pushing ourselves to remain healthy and to have fun for years to come. To accomplish a set out goal will give you a serene feeling of joyment, be it physical or psychological, big or small.
I have had the joyment of see both, and I can only recommend and suggest, how important it is these days for kids to engage in both.
Our Club Program is designed to help in this process. Athletes are being exposed to various components depending on skills, and we as coaches see the challenge in their eyes as well as the satisfaction and joy.
The one important piece is that we BELIVE AND ARE CONVINCED OF OUR CHANCES!
NEW on-line registration form is operational!

How to stay updated on Dryland Venues
To keep our program fun and educating we have added gymnastic sessions and mtn biking to our sessions. Two great sports that will add to the athletes skill tool-box.
The Saltos gym sessions are 12 sessions spread out until January 2014 for 1 hr every second Wednesday, coached by Saltos coaches. You'll learn and perfect your flips, dips and corks by using mats, trampolines and foampits. The sessions start at 630 PM. Show the respect to coaches by showing up at 615 PM ready to go.
Indoor dryland is in full swing at Muheim Elementary school from 515-630 PM and will be run on Mondays and every second Wednesday, same time and place for both days.
As with all dryland equipment we don't allow school attire when working out. I also strongly recommend that you wear REAL running shoes made for running, rather than skate/flat sole shoes. Shinsplints can easily be avoided by wearing proper shoes.
When we bike, ALL of us MUST wear a bike helmet (It's a law you know) No exceptions on this one. No lid, no ride.
So, encourage you child to get out and join the forces, come prepared for any weather and have fun!
