That’s right! It’s time to grab your boards and start putting some love into those bases and edges. It’s
never too early to start preparing for that first snowfall, and there are a few things to keep in mind.
Registration and Recruiting
Have you heard from your team captain yet? Have you talked up the league to your fellow skiers and
snowboarders? The registration deadline for this season is December 10th, so be sure to get your forms
in on time. If you’ve recruited some new members, get them in touch with your team captain or direct
them to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Get Pumped for the Season
Connecticut may not usually have snow by November 6th, but Warren Miller can certainly deliver. CISC
will have a table at both screenings of Chasing Shadows at the bushnell this year. Come see some incredible skiing and riding and help promote the league to other local snow-lovers.
Kick It Off
Want to start your season off right? Mark your calendar for the kick-off party at city steam brewery in
downtown hartford on december 4th. reacquaint yourself with your team and welcome new members.
and don’t forget your lucky rabbit’s foot for the racer raffle!
First Day Fit
Shake out the snow gear and check your pockets for left over goodies from last season! Then, check the
fit. Does that zipper still work? Does that hole seem bigger than last year? Leave the duct-tape in the
drawer and head over to one of partner shops, Ski Tunes and Suburban Sports, for the best new gear instead.
Speaking of fit… Are you ready for that first day on the slopes? Some proactive training can help make
the next day less painful. Here are some suggestions for preseason conditioning. Another benefit of a little extra conditioning is added injury prevention throughout the season; read-up here.
