Post Regionals Juniors Update

Our juniors had a great showing at the 2021 Eastern Regional Championships in Avon, CT.  There were 59 junior competitors.  The Avon Old Farms Skiers put on a fantastic junior’s party onsite at the Pond, with treats and activities including pizza, snow cones, popcorn, water mats, trampoline, movie night, and lots of fun for everyone.  The raffle raised close to $800 for the Eastern Region Junior Development Program.

Weather Cancellation of Pre-Regionals

Important Notice to all Skiers for Pre-Regional Tournament this weekend – July 9, 10, 11.

Due to the ongoing weather and the approach of Storm Elsa, we have made the difficult decision to CANCEL the tournament for this weekend. The Pond in Avon is just not skiable.

With this change, practice for Regionals will begin on Saturday, July 17th to accommodate those who want to get time on the water before Regionals.

We are planning to upgrade our September Tournament to Class E&L to make up for this cancellation.

You can request a refund for this weekend or you can use your entry fee for this weekend to cover the Tournament in September. If you want a refund, please e-mail Dana Hinman at Dana@hinmaninc.com
