Chip, so I did get up there as a family weekend for that race. Curt is super cool, very friendly and helpful. us novices got range safety and shooting for an hour before the race. we got to try out the Izhmash, as well as the Anschutz rifles and he had others there from which to pick. they were sighted in and we could shoot all we wanted. Over all a very positive and supportive vibe. The course is groomed super nice. and challenging. I was impressed. My lady and our 9 year old had to hang out in the timing booth - there is really no lodge to speak of- but they were ok with that. for our 9 year old there was a Bill Koch youth league race after our race which she liked she got a blue ribbon! (only her 2nd time on skis.) Sunday we skied at the old Saratoga spa hotel which has surprisingly good groomed trails, skating and classical. now that winters over (I guess) can't wait for next one.
