Hello racers, This is the latest from ROKKA on our racing this season .

The club season continues on Saturday February 18 with a race clinic at Mammoth. This was originally planned as a race day, but we had to scale back to a clinic.

And on Sunday March 19 we'll have giant slalom races, too.

The 2016-2017 club calendar (including masters) (* indicates a change from the last version; ? indicates not certain):

  1. /4-6/2017 Rokka Camp
* 2/18 Rokka race clinic (President's weekend)
  1. /13-18/2017 (Mammoth, USSA Masters Nationals DH, SG, GS and SL)
?3/17 Rokka race clinic
  1. /19 Rokka 1-2/SoCalcs giant slalom
  2. /30/17 - 4/1/17 (Masters Finals at Squaw Valley - SG, SL and GS)
  3. /31-4/2/2017 FWRA Championships at Mammoth
  4. /7-11 Far West Ski Association Convention, Boise, Idaho

We have not had any gates this season through the Alpine League or ROKKA. This will be an excellent chance to get some race training and some free skiing in. Last weekend a group of 6 of us trained in Big Bear. The conditions were great, but no gates. We worked on improving our turns and body position. I think most of us got a real benefit from it. Being slightly less steep makes it easier to focus on the task at hand and really solidify our skiing. As the calendar says, the ,next clinic and race for ROKKA and Alpine League is March 17-19. We should all be there for this. Let me know if you have any questions, and reserve at the Chalet early. Looking forward to some racing shortly... We have a lot of trophies to award this season. I would like to see some competition on these trophies, So come up and race. The conditions for skiing have never been better. We have just the SoCalcs and the far west championships remaining.
