— Toggenburg Junior Race Association’s Gatebuster 2011-12 season opens with a three-day camp Dec. 27 through 29 at Toggenburg Mountain, in Fabius. The camp is designed for skiers ages 5 to 8 and focuses on fun, foundational ski skills, and a basic introduction to ski racing.

Designed with small, two-coach classes to ensure individual attention and instruction, the camp will emphasize: proper use of ski lifts; on-hill safety; skiing etiquette; skiing technique and a basic introduction to racing; good values (respect, responsibility and kindness); self-confidence; and fun and friendship.

The camp runs three days from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Campers must be able to ski Toggenburg’s main hill and have knowledge of chair lift use. In January, the Gatebuster season continues with six Saturday training sessions and three Sunday fun races.

To register for the Gatebuster Holiday Camp or the Gatebuster full-season program, call 683-5842, email skitog@earthlink.net or visit racetogg.com.
