X-Team Competition at Afton Alps 2/25/18

X-Team:

We have our third competition of the 2017/2018 season this Sunday, February 25th, at Afton Alps!  Skiers and boarders will once again be competing in slopestyle and big air events.  Registration will run from 8:15am-9:00am in the Meadows Chalet, and lifts will open at 8:30am for athletes to preview the courses.  Events start at 9:30am so there will be plenty of time to get accustomed to both courses.  Please remember to bring and wear your Buck Hill pinnies this weekend.  It makes it easier for parents, teammates, and coaches to find you on the hill.  Extras will be available if needed.

Afton Alps will be giving us a number of tables in the Meadows Chalet to use for the day.  Lift tickets are also available for purchase in this building.  Additionally, tickets may be purchased ahead of time at www.aftonalps.com – you are able to either re-load a ticket if you already have one or use the express lane to pick up tickets the morning of the comp to save time.

Afton Alps has asked that all athletes sign a Release of Liability Waiver before participating in this weekends event.  A link for the waiver is posted below for you to print out and sign ahead of time.  Waivers will also be available at the registration tables.

X-Team Competition at Trollhaugen Sunday 02/04/18

By | January 31st, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on X-Team Competition at Trollhaugen Sunday 02/04/18

We have our boarder/skier cross competition at Trollhaugen in Dresser, WI this Sunday (2/04/18)!  Registration begins at 8:00am and closes at 9:15am.  It will be cold so make sure to dress for the weather! Below is a link to the area map and race schedule.  It is important to note for this weekend that:

1) If an athlete misses a race it will be counted as a loss.

2) Athletes should NOT leave the staging area until their age group is completely done.  Just because their name has not been called for a few minutes does not mean they are done racing! In the past athletes have left because their name had not been called for 10 minutes, and later found out they were supposed to be in the championship race.

3) Awards will be presented at the race site after finals for each group.  There will NOT be an award ceremony for every age group at the end of the day.  After the award ceremony for your age group you are done for the day.  However, it is highly recommended to stay and explore Trollhaugen!  You are getting the opportunity to ride on terrain you don’t get to see every week!
