Attention U8 and U10 Racers!

We are very excited to have our first GS race for the U8 and U10 this Sunday (1/21).

Location: Exhibition East
Registration: 8:15am – 8:45am in Crane Lodge
Course Inspection: 8:45am – 9:45am (9:15am coach will be at start to take kids down)
1st Run Start time: 10:00am
2nd Run Start time: 30 minutes after the end of 1st run
Awards: 1 hour after last racer finished on 2nd run. Held on patio of Crane Lodge

Please make sure you are on time. It is important that all racers inspect the course. This means that they need to side slip or go in a wedge down alongside the course—no skiing the course before 1st run. Coaches will be available to help inspect at 9:15am. Please try to review the course once before coming with the coach. All bibs need to be on the outside layer of the clothes that your child is going to wear to race in. Please make sure this is done before the start of the race. At the finish of the 2nd run, all racers should return their bibs to the bib collector at the bottom of the race course.

Good Luck!
