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 each 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 Day One, the handicaps of the 5 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.

Day Two will be conducted the same as Day One. When the handicaps from Day One are tallied, the team whose Day Two total team handicap comes closest to their Day One total team handicap wins the event.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 10 teams.

Gate Times Day One: 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Gate Times Day Two: To Be Announced


Announcement of Race winners and award presentations will be held Monday in "Vertical" at Mt. Hood Meadows, as close to 3:00 p.m. as possible.
