All Good Things Must Come to an End

We’ve reached the time of year when alpine ski racing is wrapping up. For most ski racers, it’s almost the end of the season. Points are tallied, results logged. Those with the best results move on to Regionals, Easterns, Can Ams, Noram Finals, State Championships and possibly Nationals.¬†The route to get to the USSA finals varies by state and each region has it’s own competition guide to explain:

There are still some ski racing events like the Francis Piche Invitational at Gunstock in New Hampshire and the Loveland Derby SL in Colorado. But for many young athletes the ski racing season is soon coming to an end.

Thank you to all ski racers (and parents) across the country for your dedication to this sport! Congratulations to all those ski racers that will be heading to upper level competitions.

Arctica end of the season sales

As the ski racing season wraps up we too are wrapping up old business and moving on to new. Therefore we are having an end of the season sale. All merchandise that we are not carrying forward to next season is discounted to closeout. That means colors of our Full Side Zip Pant 2.0 that will not be carried over to next season are now on SALE! Shop now while selection is best.

    Please!!!! Manufacture stretchy material shorts in the color yellow for teen racers, in 2017/2018, AND full side-zip pants in KHAKI and DARK KHAKI, so us coaches who ALSO still race, can look better than the boring “black pants squad” !!

      We hear you! Thanks for the comment. Orders are done and the 2017-18 line is already in production, but we’ll certainly keep this in mind for 2018-19.
