Overnight 2-3 inches of nice, fluffy snow fell making the place look very wintery indeed. Couple that with low temps below 20F and a nice gusty wind and darned if it wasn't suddenly winter! About half the group got in a skate ski while I skied classic before breakfast. Everyone did about 90 min. of classic after breakfast and we fired up the two iPads so each skier could get some video instruction out on the course. The iPads are a great tool so you can look immediately at the video. They need a hood so you can see better in the brightness! Then we switched to skate for a final session, also with some video. At this point some were getting very tired, including several coaches, and we finally broke for lunch and then the ride home.
This was a really successful mini-camp and I think everyone was happy to finally get on snow and off the rollerskis, even if only for a couple days. Everyone is skiing well and seems to have made the transition to snow quite well. A few photos:
