GROMS Event Recap

Last Sunday, January 14 was the first GROMS event of the year at Beaver Valley with 177 athletes in the GROMS Freestyle Ski & Snowboard Competition. Cold temps, high winds and waist deep powder for some, but it was still a great day. And we brought home some medals too! See the full results at the bottom of the page.


Parent Volunteers Needed for Team Managers

We’re looking for parent volunteers to step up to the role of Team Manager for their athlete’s team this season. Team Managers responsibilities may include assisting on competition days, organizing a team social, and helping put together a basket for the Basket Raffle fundraiser at the end of the season. Team Managers are typically eligible to receive a lift ticket at any away races so they may assist the coaches.

If you’re interested, please email Erin at ehindle@alpineskiclub.com.
