All athletes, even those pre-registering on-line must sign liability and release waivers when checking in to receive their number.  We advise all athletes check in for their event the day prior to competing or at least two (2) hours prior to the start of their competition.  Event Registration is in the Grand View Room at the Southwest corner of the Lionshead Parking Structure.

All athletes must be present at check in to receive their number.  Numbers will NOT be given to friends, coaches or family members.

Organizers will not be responsible for incomplete, lost, or misdirected registrations or for registrations not received for any reason, including, without limitation, failure or malfunction of any communications network or equipment or computer software or hardware.

Stud/Spike: Studs are allowed on tires regardless of category

Sharp Spikes are prohibited on tires regardless of category.

Ex:  Wood screws may be used if the point of the screw is facing in towards the rim (Head of screw is facing towards the snow ).  Or if screws are installed from the inside out the point of the screw has been ground down to a flat surface. 

All Tires must pass inspection at the riders meeting.

Bike/Frames: Any style of MTB bike may be used (ex. Hard Tail, Full Suspension, 29er). Skibikes are not allowed.  You have to have actual tires for this one!

Tire Sizing: All tire sizes are permitted, however we wouldn't recommend anything smaller than a 2.1"

Helmets: Helmets are required for this event.

Start, 10:00 AM SHARP at the base of Golden Peak.  All riders must meet at the base of the finish arena in Golden Peak at 9:30am for a rider meeting and to be shuttled via snow mobile to the start area.

Course will be set with GS style gates.

All riders will be seeded in brackets via a combination of USAC and previous years results.  There will be no qualifying round.

All riders will race the first round on the same course and then flip courses for elimination to the next round.

Riders will be shuttled to the top via snowmobiles.

Awards will take place following the competition at Golden Peak stage.

The course is entirely on snow.  Course conditions will depend entirely on weather conditions leading up to the event and the day of the event.  The course is normally on a hard packed groomed section race course on the mountain.  However if it is snowing day of or leading up to the event the course conditions could vary.

There are natural undulations on the course, however, there will be no artificial banks.  We plan on cutting 1-2 drops, however, this will depend on snow conditions the night before the race.  This is a wide open fast course.

The course length is approximately 1000 feet from top to bottom with a significant elevation loss.

There will be approximately 15-18 gates to negotiate.  The course setter will determine the gate placement.  Expect a fast flowing top section followed by a tight technical middle and bottom section.

Sorry but there will not be any practice allowed on the course.  We are limited on the time and use of snowmobiles and will not be able to shuttle riders for practice.  Additionally, snow courses are subject to breakdown and we want to keep the conditions as good as possible for as long as possible.
