    Happy Thanksgiving! Have a fun and safe holiday weekend!

    Skibowl will open for the winter on Friday! Over 2 feet of snow fell on Monday, and it snowed more on Tuesday! The temperature has stayed very cold and the snow is great. Skibowl has groomed the Canyon, Reynolds Run top to bottom, and all of Lower Bowl and Multorpor. All lifts will be operating by Saturday.

    Winter arrived and Skibowl will open just in time for our Thanksgiving Camp!
    Here is an update for the next few weeks, and some important dates for your calendar:

    Thanksgiving Camp
    All MHA Juniors and MHRT J4/J5 athletes will be skiing with the coaches Friday, Saturday and Sunday for Thanksgiving Camp. Skiing should be fun at Skibowl! While there is a lot of snow, the area still does not have a base layer, so some stumps and rocks may still be under the service. Be careful, and bring trainers or rock skis. Twin-tips are fine, but please bring training ski, too. MHRT J4/J5 athletes will meet coaches each day at the Multorpor Lodge by 9:00am. MHA Juniors will meet coaches at the Multorpor Lodge by 9:00am on Friday, and by 8:30am on Saturday and Sunday.

    MHRT J6 and Learn to Race Programs
    J6 racers and the Learn to Race participants will begin their programs on Saturday, December 4th. We should be skiing at Skibowl and meeting at the Multorpor Lodge. Make sure you have your season pass or lift ticket, and please make sure that your ski bindings and boots operate properly. Another announcement will be sent next week. Check the team website,, or call the Racer Message phone, 503-272-0109, for more information.

    J3 Team Calendar/Planning Meeting - 11/27
    After skiing on Saturday, the 27th, J3 athletes and their parents will meet with Mary and the coaches for a planning meeting, review the race calendar for this year, and discuss race entry and race travel. The meeting is scheduled for 3:00pm, but be sure to check with the coaches on Saturday for any change. Everyone should plan on meeting, however, if you cannot attend please send Mary an email at so she can get you the information.

    J1/J2 Team Calendar/Planning Meeting - 12/4
    All part-time J1/J2 athletes and parents will meet with the coaches after training on Saturday, December 4th, at MHA. We will discuss the race calendar and race travel plans. In the mean time, everyone should send in their entry for the Russ Read GS at Mt. Bachelor.

    Russ Read GS, Mt. Bachelor, December 18th & 19th
    The first race of the season for most MHA Juniors will be the Russ Read GS at Mt. Bachelor on the 18th and 19th. The deadline is December 4th, so please send your entry. The team is staying at the Ameritel Inn in Bend. You will be able to discuss the event with the coaches at your planning meeting, and cancel your entry at that time if appropriate. Please go to race announcement for more information.

    MHRT Parents Meeting - Change
    Our annual MHRT parents meeting during the Holiday Camp will be Wednesday, December 29th, right after training in the Multorpor Lodge. This is a change from earlier calendars. This meeting is a great time for new families to meet with the coaches, ask questions and discuss plans for the coming season. This is also a great time for experienced racing families to share their knowledge and "tricks" with new racing families. Please change your calendar and plan to join us on the 29th.
    More team information will be available in the coming weeks. But for now, winter has arrived, Skibowl is open, and we're excited to ski!!
    See you on the mountain!

    Here comes the snow!!

  • October 29, 2010 12:55 PM | Anonymous

    The first winter snow fell this week on the mountain, with close to a foot of snow in Government Camp and over 3 feet of snow at Timberline!  The ski season will soon be here and before we know it the kids will be racing!


    In preparation for the racing events our team will host this winter, we are having an informational meeting for all those interested in learning more about racing.  Hosting a quality ski race requires many volunteers doing many different jobs.  There are plenty of tasks for parents, both on and off the hill.  Please join us this coming Wednesday.


    MHSEF Race Committee Meeting

    Wednesday, November 3rd at 6:30pm

    Elmer's Restaurant

    16087 SE 82nd Drive, Clackamas, OR

    (just East of I-205 off Hwy 224)


    Race Officials


    Those of you who currently hold an officials license will be able to fulfill your Officials Update requirement at our Committee Meeting on Wednesday.  For those of you who may be interested in becoming a licensed official this meeting will cover the information needed prior to attending the PNSA Officials Clinic.


    The PNSA Officials Clinic in Portland is scheduled for Sunday, November 14th at the Multnomah Athletic Club.  Please go to the PNSA website for detailed information and registration - Registration and Information All clinics begin at 8:15 AM - registration opens at 7:30 AM


    Every event we host requires licensed officials handling many different duties, so we are always looking for more parents interested in this area of racing.  However, even if you are not interested in becoming a licensed official, the Officials Clinic is still a great opportunity to learn more about the sport and meet other parents of Mt. Hood racers.  The more you know, the more you will enjoy your child's experience in ski racing.


    If you have any questions about the Race Committee Meeting or the PNSA Officials Clinic please send an email to Malcolm Ash -, or Bill Gunesch -

    Hope to see you on Wednesday!

    We are very excited about the coming weekend and the Buddy Werner Championships.  Families from all over the Northwest will be coming to Government Camp and Mt. Hood Skibowl as guests of MHSEF and CSRT.  I am very proud of our two teams and all the effort that has gone into preparing for this very special event.  It is going to be a wonderful and exciting weekend.

    Please review these two volunteer lists BWC Volunteer Assignments - On Hill and BWC Volunteer Assignments - Off Hill.  Thanks so much to all of you!  Most of you have volunteered for multiple jobs and I am very grateful for your enthusiastic participation.  Please look over the lists, if you have any questions please get in touch with me.

    There are still a few jobs that need filling. J   (And no, they are not all gatekeeping jobs.)  If you have not already volunteered, please do so!  This will be a great weekend and the proceeds from it benefit our entire team.  Come be a part of this special event!

    Thank You,

    Karen Dean
