MRT Athletes from U8 through U19 age groups competed and podiumed in the USASA Ski Cross Races on January 1st at Meadows. The event occurred under bluebird skies in perfect racing conditions. MHM Race Crew and Grooming staff did an excellent job of prepping the race terrain and event venue on the Banked Slalom run off the Easy Rider Chair. Multiple banks, jumps and rollers were constructed Friday after nearly 20 inches of snow on Thursday that buried the previously developed terrain. MRT staff participated as Chief of Course, course setting, course maintenance and most importantly coaching to the MRT athletes that competed in the 2 races that were held during the day.
MRT athletes performed outstandingly well against a competitive field that included attendance by 10 athletes form the Palisades (Squaw Valley) Program. Multiple medals and podiums were taken by MRT athletes! Parents, athletes and staff had an incredible race under amazing conditions.
The next dual SX race will occur on February 21st for those that are interested in competing. Reach out to Coach Sean Welch for details and information.
