                  Race Team
                  Season Recap

                  Ann Arbor Race Team though small and proud, valiantly competed again this year. The race season was cut short this year due to weather conditions early in the season at Boyne, with the first race weekend canceled.

                  Our VP Todd Newman inspired the team with his two 3rd places, a 4th and 5th place despite running only 4 races this season. The rest of the team finished the last race weekend with one 1st in the GS , two 1st in the slalom and two 1st places in the Cantor cup.

                  The team finished the season with eleven 1st place finishes, one 2nd place, and two 3rd place finishes. Two of the racers won their class for the year. The Ann Arbor Race Team looks forward to next race season with hopes that more skiers will join the fun.

                      The Ann Arbor Ski Club has a mobile app.  It runs on IOS and Android.  Jeff Crawford has written a nice piece on how to download the app.

                      Members have reported problems with the app.  An upgrade will correct the issue.  You have to delete it from your phone, then reload.
