March 10 skiing & snowboarding competitions cancelled

As you may know, a snowstorm is scheduled to arrive on Saturday, March 9. There will be high winds and drifting snow throughout Sunday, which means poor travel conditions. Safety is always our top priority, so after watching the forecast all week and discussing the situation with Afton Alps, we’ve decided to err on the side of caution and cancel the state alpine skiing and snowboarding events on Sunday, March 10.

Qualifier Meet – Feb. 10, 2019 – Afton Alps, Hastings
State Meet – March 10, 2019 – Afton Alps, Hastings
