Well, we do have enough snow…

January 11, 2009

Several years ago, Saline Community Education sponsored a High School and Middle School Ski Club.  The program was recreational and involved weekly after-school trips to Mt. Brighton in late December and January.  The program ended for logistical reasons – including the frequent lack of snow.

Now, parents and students in the greater Ann Arbor area have developed a high school alpine racing team. In this first season (2009), the team is organized as a club sport that participates in the same competitive series that includes 12 local varsity and junior varsity teams that compete at Mt. Brighton. There are currently racers from seven local high schools, including our own Saline High School.

Starting January 5, the program is four days per week. Training is from 4-6 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Races run from 4:15pm to 6:30pm with Slalom on Tuesdays and Giant Slalom on Thursdays. The program runs until early February. Racers travel to Mt. Brighton via car pooling.
