How does it work?
Sprint races with a twist – climb up, race down, all in, elbows out!
The course will include features such as jumps, banked turns and rollers.

But I don’t want to hit jumps?

The jumps are all designed to be roll-over/tabletops. It won’t be as fast, but you can slow down and ski over them.
Still adverse to jumping? New to the idea? Check out the beginner division where you’ll ski a toned down course.

What do I get with my entry?

– Guaranteed 3 runs: time trial qualifier + single elimination format, with consolation heats.
– Draw prizes for all entrants.
– Enjoy spring skiing with music, fun times, and high-octane racing!

Schedule of Events:
