The first day of slalom was as good as it gets on Mt Hood! The temps were cool in the AM keeping the snow firm for the early part of training and then the salting helped keep the snow hard as the temps warmed up later in the morning. The coaches set 4 drill course sections for the group to work on their Slalom skills. It was incredibly productive and a very fun day! The athletes were getting fatigued, as there were no lift lines and they had at least 10 laps on the Palmer lift!! It was spectacular!!
