What We Do

The Race

You will be skiing/snowboarding two runs each on two adjacent courses. Each of the two courses will be skied by a pacesetter before racing begins for the day. The pacesetter establishes the course time on each course. The difference between your time and the pacesetter’s time is your handicap. For you mathematicians, the formula is (skier time – pacesetter time)x100.

At the end of the day, the handicaps of the 4 members of each team will be added together for each run, then the sums of each run will be added together to establish your total team handicap for the day.

The team whose handicap comes closest to their 2 run total team handicap wins the event.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams.

  • Gate Times: 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
