Atomic XC Camp Update

- By: Norm Crerar

Dear Campers!

Just a short update that I hope finds you in good health and ready for the XC season.

It is a bit warm in the west but a big weather change is due this week-end. Everything seems to be right on time. All the trails have been brushed and mowed and are ready for the snow. We have had the first few organizing meetings for the Silver Star Mountain Night Sprints Dec 6th. This is going to be an event not to be missed.

The camps this year are going to give all of us the greatest opportunity of a lifetime. Living and skiing with the world's best is not an opportunity that comes along very often. Only at Silver Star Mountain! Join the 500 or so athletes and coaches from around the world.

There are a number of events that coincide with the XC Camps. The annual banquet and auction for the benefit of our National XC Team will be held the evening of November 26th. Big turkey dinner to allow us to help our southern neighbors celebrate their Thanksgiving. If you are on a camp that night, your ticket to the dinner and auction is included in your package. The next event will be the night sprints December 6th right in the Silver Star vllage and then the World Cup races at Sovereign December 10th and 11th.

As mentioned in earlier updates, Mr. Magnar Dalen will be joing the LSD camps and will be available for the Technique Camps from Dec 2 to Dec 7. Magnar is a former coach of the Swedish and the Norwegian national XC Teams. He is also an international TD and will be the Chief of Race for the Night Sprints. Magnar knows and works with the international teams and coaches so may be able to bring a coach or two to some of the evening presentations. You can ask him why his new wax company is producing kick wax at $100 a tube!

The ATOMIC XC Camps are now part of two very exciting XC web sites. You will see our flag ads on both www.fasterskier.com and skifaster.net. Click on to both of these sites for the latest on XC happenings around the world. One site is headquartered in the USA and one in Canada. If you click on the ATOMIC XC Camps ads, you will be on the home page of the Camp web site. Once there, you can pick up the latest updates. Check the weather at Silver Star mountain on their web site www.skisilverstar.com.

If you have not done so already, register on-line for the XC Camps at www.xccamps.ca. Hotel rooms are going to be tight so please book as soon as you can. Bring a friend!

Please pass this e-mail on the your five best XC friends that have never been to the Silver Star XC Camps before. I can not guarantee out of body experiences or good luck with waxing for life but I can guarantee my thanks to you for helping out.

Keep the pointy ends forward,
