Jen's World: Annual Chester's honor kind souls

Since 2007, the Jen's World Chester Awards have recognized people who exhibit a kindness, a generosity of spirit, or a plain old above-and-beyondness that might not make the evening news, but that has warmed my heart.
This year the RNST coaches were named the 
2017 Winners of the Chester Award

Meet your Coaches!

Thanks to all the work over the last few months by the groomers we still have a ski trail. Click above for photos of the RNST's Heart Thumper Valentine's day race on 14th February.
  



Here is a very helpful checklist for both RNST skiers and coaches, to help you understand the terminology used by the coaches and allow you to self-check your technique !  
Thanks to Joey Keillor and Henry Walker for all the work on this.
