The race program offers something for everyone with programs starting for those as young as age 8 through high school-age.

During the Dec. 6 event, coaches for the program will discuss the programs, racing opportunities, Friday Night Racing and answer questions about the upcoming season.

Those interested in learning more about the programs, including the new "Carvers" team, for the 2012-13 season are encouraged to attend.

Anyone interested in registering for a program or Friday Night Racing also may attend this event.

Trail cleanup day

Exciting work has been done at the Snow Bowl in recent weeks. A section of upper Mussel Ridge has been dramatically improved with the clearing of trees and rocks, said Chris Christie, race coach. This improvement will allow increased training opportunities for the race programs and increased terrain for the recreational skier, he said.

However, there is work that needs to be done to prepare the Snow Bowl for the season, Christie said. A Hill Clean Up Day is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers should meet on the deck of the lodge.

There are a variety of projects that need to be completed before snowmaking begins. Volunteers are asked to bring basic tools such as clippers, rakes and anything to cut brush.

For more information, contact the Snow Bowl by phone at 236-3438 or by email at race@camdensnowbowl.com.
