PA Cups - Upcoming Travel

To all of our U19 and U16 Athletes and parents planning to travel, we wanted to put out a few helpful tips to prepare for the trip.  I know for many this may be your first time attending an away PA Cup race.

The details for all of the races are on the Race Schedule and in the details of the Calendar event.  Click on the event to see a more detailed view, but here is a quick summary.  Coach Rick has talked to many of the parents directly already, if you have any questions please reach out to Rick, Katie or Robb.


Blue Mountain:

For Blue bib and lift ticket pick up is at the top lodge on Friday from 7:30-8:30am.  WPRC will have a coach to meet the kids after the captain's meeting and head out for inspection.  We recommend that all parents drive down to lower lodge after registering their kids (and sign up to volunteer for at least one day) since the lower lodge is at the bottom of the race hill.  It is convenient to meet between runs and have lunch.

The team usually get pizza/salads and watch video in the evening in the lobby of the Residence Friday and Saturday nights.  


Elk:

Everything occurs at the main lodge.  Park and take the famous Elk Wagon to the Ski Lodge.

At Elk the team has their annual Season ending dinner Saturday night (3/3) at Smilers which is very close to the hotel in Dickson City.    In the past we have done dinner Friday night at the famous Coopers Seafood but due to the crowds at the restaurant it ends up being a late evening so in the past couple years we have just done the pizza video thing at the hotel.  Coach Rick, Katie and Robb will give details as to where to meet for dinner.
