Dear CMAC community,
As many of you may now be aware, the USSS has canceled all remaining ski and snowboard events for the remainder of the season in light of concerns around COVID-19:
“U.S. Ski & Snowboard is also cancelling all sanctioned and scheduled events beginning Monday, March 16. This includes all club-level events for all disciplines and any unnecessary gatherings, including banquets, awards, and end of season presentations, etc. Expect further updates on future events, including U.S. Ski & Snowboard Congress.”
We too at CMAC have been monitoring the situation closely in our state and have come to the unfortunate, but necessary, conclusion to follow suit.
Similarly, we have been in discussions with our home mountain Crystal and although they are currently open for business, they are still trying to assess what the impact might be going forward on operations.
In an abundance of caution, we have decided to enact the following changes in order to protect you, our coaches, our racers and their families:
- All training for U12 racers and below will be suspended immediately
- All training for racers in the Prep/Advanced Prep program will also be suspended immediately
- Mid-week training at the Summit will also be suspended as of today
- Training at Crystal this weekend for all age groups will be suspended
The CMAC leadership will continue to work with the USSA, PNSA, Alterra management and internally to discuss next steps with regard to training for our race team U14s and above. Please stay tuned for additional communication as we work through these extraordinary times.
As unfortunate as this is, CMAC has always been a family that takes care of its own and given recent events, feel that these are the right and necessary steps to keep us all safe.
