* I never had the chance to express my gratitude for the opportunity to coach this past year. It was a great experience, and I hope to be involved in the ski community for many years. I know I would not be involved in skiing at all were in not for my experience as a kid at Giants Ridge MYSL, back in the day.
*The Skiwerx race series is the focal point of our winter
*A new skier came out for a preview yesterday. Most of our normal group were unable to make it yesterday due to school activities, etc. so I was able to work one-on-one with her. With 5 year olds I usually have to spend most of the first session with basic balance and some confidence building, but not this girl. By the end of the session she was trying to go faster and faster. She would fall down and get back up within a couple seconds and be right back to skiing. She kept saying she loved skiing and yelled out that this was the best day ever. She told her mom she wanted to come back to the park and ski every day. I know it's only her first time on skis and she is only 5, but I wouldn't be surprised if she became a great skier someday.
*Fun to see so much goodness around xc skiing in MN!!
*She was very excited about the day and we ended up skiing more after the class had ended. She would have stayed even longer but I got cold(: I am so happy to have been able to sign my daughter up for this program.
*I'm so impressed with how you pull off a HUGE one day ski swap so professionally! crazy!
*This is a tremendous opportunity to have
your child learn and enjoy this lifelong sport in a supportive
environment at a reasonable cost.
*Thanks so much for the info session yesterday at FinnSisu. Helpful even
after my 20 years of skiing...but first time bringing a 9 year old along
for the fun.
*We look forward to it every year. FANTASTIC program!
*Thx for your efforts supporting Skiwerx races. What a fun set of events!
*It was really fun; The pie was awesome - Pecan is my favorite!Thanks for all you're doing - lots of great youth skiers out there.
*She's getting really personalized attention, which is so important as she's starting out.
*My daughters are former MYSL and Silver Skiers and are now High School Nordic competitors. Even though they are no longer in MYSL, we have really enjoyed reading Jessie's blogs. Learning about the other countries and their culture has been fun as well as the tips on training for skiing.
*My daughter really enjoyed being part of this program and was sorry when it ended last week. I think it was very rewarding for her to see improvement in her skiing and she enjoyed her relationships with the coaches.
*Skiwerx is a huge success. Even in the tangent of bringing the parents together too -- skiwerx is wonderful at building community. It's been great meeting and getting to know the other parents.
*MYSL is an awesome organization! Good works!
*This is great! We're so excited to part of this organization. Mom grew up snowmobiling and has ditched that in favor of a more active winter activity... xcountry skiing. Thank you for supporting those of us who are newer to the sport. We'd drown without you.
*Great weekend at the Midwest Junior Championships. We had fun.
*Thanks for a great event last weekend! Elan and Jacob had a blast.
*Thanks for putting on a fantastic event for the young ones.. My Joe had a great time on both Saturday and Sunday...and he really liked the XCross Ramp; pretty cool! Thanks again...
*Just wanted to let you know what a blast I had announcing for your event! My favorite part of Nordic skiing has always been seeing the little ones ski. Thanks for including me.
*That race was great....the kids loved it. Thanks for all you do.
*Thanks for a well run event. Great format, distance, course.
