Team Fuxi’s Guide to Summer Ski Camps at Mt. Hood

While flowers may be popping and snow boots have been traded for sandals, ski season still has a bit of life left in it in the form of summer ski camps. In about a month’s time, Team FR and thousands of ski racers, freestylers, and snowboarders come together at Timberline Resort for summer camps. A summer camp at Mt. Hood is a rite of passage for athletes young and old, with some of the biggest names in racing and freestyle making annual Mt. Hood appearances. With resorts closing left and right, now is the perfect time to consider where you are ski camping. Team FR has a run down of Mt. Hood ski racing camps to help you decide where to spend your summer snow time.

As a note, be sure to do your homework on your camp of choice. Investigate what is or isn’t included and plan accordingly. Some camps allow children under 9 to attend, with the camper spending nights with his/her parent(s) and participating in all camp activities during the day for a flat day rate. Also, most of the camp websites offer a detailed list on what to bring to ensure you or your child has the best experience at camp. In case you don’t see a list, Ski Racing Media threw down some great tips to get the most out of your summer race camp. Please note, none of the prices above include airfare, with the closest airport being PDX (Portland).

Team FR will be in Govi for another summer; make sure to stop in to say hello or perhaps design your one-of-a-kind custom race suit for next season. While Team FR won’t be at the gas station, you will still be able to find us in the heart of Govi or on the glacier. See you all soon!

Keep on carving,

Team FR (SMM)

Resolve to Start Your 2018 on the Right Foot

A new year is suddenly upon us. Tis the season for talk of turning over a new leaf, making a fresh start. A time to think about ways to improve ourselves over the coming year. Resolutions come to us in many different ways, whether it be our own ideas or ideas we adapt from others. How do you go about forming your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you get excited to make a plan to stick to your goals? Do you make big resolutions or small resolutions?

A discussion about struggling to get around in the morning and hitting the thick ski traffic grew into an idea for a New Year’s Resolution for our family and hopefully will prove useful for all you as well. Ski and/or race mornings are crazy in our house. It seems no matter what time we wake, we scramble to get out the door on time. Between getting the kids and yourself ready, finding all the equipment, making twenty trips to the car, the morning turns to chaos and you haven’t left the driveway. Then you get to the resort and you find yourself wondering how to carry everything, searching for a spot to get dressed in the lodge, fighting to get your feet in frigid boots, all in an effort to get out to the lift before the line is a mile long.

Which brings me to our Team Fuxi resolution: make ski mornings a little less chaotic with better preparation. Want to join together for a smoother ski mornings? What if we told you Team Fuxi can help get you off the ski morning struggle bus? Our heated boot bags will turn frustrated grimaces into endearing smiles making mornings infinitely more pleasant!

The first question I know many of you will have is how can a heated boot bag get me more organized for ski mornings? First off, you can put ALL of your gear inside it. My son can fit everything he needs for the day in his Ajax model. This includes his helmet, boots, balaclava, goggles, coat, pants, hat, layers, snacks, and his water bottle. He puts everything in the night before and has a sense of accomplishment when finished. I do the same for my husband and I. We have the Pro model and I put in goggles, layers, helmets, gloves, balaclavas, and both pairs of our boots, which is no easy task as my husband is a size 14 (30.5) boot! The bags have eliminated the ten trips to the car. Now we make one trip to the car, backpack on back, skis on shoulder. Boom…we are on the road!

The next question you might ask is, why do I need to spend the money for the heated bag, won’t another bag serve the same purpose? Here’s the rub, the first time we used the heated boot bag, my 5 year old son put his boots on BY HIMSELF. The heat from the bag makes the plastic incredibly pliable, like butter almost. Your foot glides in and is snuggled in warm, blissful comfort. A room temperature boot is at most 68 degrees, which means the plastic is still stiff, making it a chore to get on your boots. Then when you put your foot in, the boot actually pulls heat from your foot making your feet cold before you walk out of the lodge. With a heated boot, the boot is warmer than your body temperature, meaning toasty feet on that bitterly cold first chair ride. Don’t the boots get cold on the drive to the resort, you may ask? No, they don’t, thanks to a 12V adapter you can keep them toasting in your car.

For our family, having a bag on the hill during race and practice days is huge. We can keep snacks, extra layers, drinks, and other incidentals right at the Start Haus. It has streamlined our mornings and saved countless trips to the lodge. For all you racers, a heated boot bag is a must have. Fuxi won’t leave home without his and there is a reason all of the top World Cup racers have a heated boot bag at the Start Haus.

As for the specs, all bags are constructed with Denier 600 Nylon and include a heated step pad, tons of pockets, backpack straps, shoulder straps, and a 120V AC to use at home and a 12V to keep your boots warm in the car. The bag is equipped with three heat settings and comes with a 2 year warranty! The heated boot bag comes in three models listed from largest to smallest:

Pro – The largest of the line up and the MUST HAVE bag for racers. It includes pockets for your shin guards and plenty of space for your coat and extra layers. This is Fuxi’s choice bag.

Classic – The most popular bag in our line-up and the perfect bag for moms and dads. Fits everything you need, hats, goggles, layers, socks, etc, and carries comfortably.

Ajax – This one is ideal for the junior skier; my 5 year old can carry all his gear, by himself, in his Ajax heated bag.

Want to join us in our resolution to make ski mornings more organized and more comfortable? Order your heated boot bag today and Team Fuxi will cover the shipping for you until 11:59PM, December 31, 2017. You read that right, FREE SHIPPING! Stock is EXTREMELY limited on the PRO bags and limited on the Classic and Ajax models. Don’t go into the busiest month of skiing disorganized and with stiff, cold boots. Let’s make it our resolution to start 2018 on the warm, right foot!

Once you receive your bag, be sure to share with us your heated boot bag setups on social media with the hashtag, #TeamFuxi.

Happiest of New Year wishes to all of you,

Team Fuxi

There are a lot of story lines to follow at Beaver Creek. Last week, the Austrians, Italians, and Norwegians dominated the top ten in both Super G and Downhill in Lake Louise. Will the same be said for this weekend? Norwegian Aksel Svindal, who was third on the Downhill podium last week, has excelled at Birds of Prey, with 5 career wins. Italian Beat Feuz, last week’s downhill winner and holder of the downhill crown from the 2017 World Championships, snagged a bronze at Beaver Creek in 2015. In the Super-G, it would be unwise to not consider Austrian Hannes Reichelt for a spot on the podium; he has 3 World Cup Birds of Prey wins and a gold from the 2015 World Championships at Beaver Creek. As for the Americans, Bryce Bennett, Travis Ganong, Andrew Weibrecht, and Jared Goldberg all look to improve on their Lake Louise finishes.

Hungry to get back on the course, as evidenced by his controversial Sölden comments, American Ted Ligety is a strong favorite in Giant Slalom. The Birds of Prey course has been kind to him, with six career GS victories. In recent memory the Birds of Prey GS crown has went to one of two men, Ligety or Marcel Hirscher (Austria). When was the last time one of these two didn’t take the top spot on the podium? 2009 folks. Will this year be more of the same and shape up to be a Ligety-Hirscher showdown? With Hirscher’s recent injury and lack of time training on the new radius, it doesn’t appear it will be more of the same this year. Keep your eye on Alexis Pinturault to make a podium push. Who do you think will round out the GS top three?

Every ski racer should attend at least one World Cup event. Be on the lookout for Team Fuxi at Beaver Creek this weekend. Fuxi and his team will have big news to share with you. For those of you unable to attend, fear not! The Birds of Prey will air on NBC. See below for times and channel information.

Stay tuned as we roll out more features to enhance your experience in the coming weeks. It is going to be one tremendous season.
