**A Note about age class - we will utilize age class from the 2018-19 ski season. For example, if you were a U14 skier this past season, you will be in the U14 group for these races (even if you are moving to the U16 class for the 2019-20 season). If you have questions about which age class you will be in please contact email@example.com
Saturday, July 27th - Skate Sprint Day
REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 9AM - Please pre-register if possible. Day-of registration and Bib pick up will be near the entrance of CMC. CASH OR CHECK ONLY for day-of registration. No Credit cards will be accepted.
U14 and younger race (skate) an agility course that is roughly 250 meters. Racers will get to complete the course three times and the best time will count. We will have a preview period before the timed races. Racers have unlimited access to the course during the preview period.
U16 and older will do a 200 meter Roller Ski World Cup style skate sprint with a qualifier plus elimination rounds. All racers will advance to rounds.
Thanks to Swix we will have matched skis for the sprint races. This means we will provide the skis to racers to ensure a fair race. Most skis will have NNN bindings. If you use SNS boots please indicate so on your registration (deadline - July 20th).
Parking — will be plentiful at Colorado Mountain College which is very close to the race start.
Tents are welcome and a good idea to provide shade. You must have four corner weights of at least 25lbs. We will be inspected and you will have to take down any tent without weights.
Sunday, July 28th - Hill Climb
NO DAY-OF REGISTRATION
Parking — will only be available on Tiger Road. Racers will need to ski to the start. NO PARKING AT THE GOLF COURSE.
Classic technique, individual start.
3K and 5K courses both open to all ages.
While we are calling this a “hill climb” there is some variation in terrain. Racers will finish at a higher point than the start and will be shuttled back. No downhill roller skiing will be allowed.
We cannot provide matched skis for this event therefore will require all racers to have normal (resistance 2) wheels in order to race.
There will not be a stadium area as we are racing through a neighborhood. Sorry no tents.
cash prizes for top male and female finishers in the sprint and 5k
