Omer and Bob’s Annual Consignment Ski Sale: 11/1 – 11/2

Omer and Bob’s sent us this announcement about their upcoming consignment sale:

This is a great place to get rid of your old ski/board gear and a great place to pick up some gear at a great price that still has some good life left in it.

For sellers: bring your ski or board gear to the shop 10/29-10/31 and tell us what you would like to get for it. We won’t be able to take straight skis, skis with old bindings, helmets or softgoods. If it sells we can either write you a check for the sale amount minus 25% commission or you can get the whole sale amount as store credit. If it does not sell we need you to pick it up next week (11/3-11/6).

For buyers: come on by 11/1 (9-5) -11/2 (11-4) and see what’s around that might be a match for you. We will be there to give advice for fit and condition. Historically there has been alpine, XC, and snowboard gear there so there will be something for everyone at least if you like snowsports.

Summer Training in Chile

This past summer, three Ford Sayre Academy athletes trained on snow in South America.  Proctor Academy, a local private school with a USSA/FIS alpine team of their own, invited FSA athletes to attend their annual summer trip to El Colorado just outside of Santiago, Chile.  For two weeks, the 20+ athletes and 4 coaches stayed at a small, rustic inn called Refugio El Monte, owned and run Christian Montenegro (“Monte”) and his family.  Proctor  Academy has been staying at his place for many many years.

Ford Sayre Academy has a recent history of joining Proctor on their summer trip.  For the past 5+ years, FSA athletes have joined on this trip.  This year, three FSA athletes attended – Courtney Couture, Nils Kingston and Brian Seltzer.

For the first week, the athletes were greeted with great training conditions on snow, however the snow was minimal, and the temperatures were warm.  Then for the second week, they finally were blessed with snow…and lots of it!  Almost 3 meters of snow in a couple of days.  Note the difference in some of the pictures.
