January 6, 2018 @ 8:00 am - January 7, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
This is the 1st weekend of racing in the Minus33 Eastern Telemark Series. There will be two days of racing with a Sprint Classic held both January 6 and January 7.
Minus33 is the title sponsor of this race as well as the entire Eastern Series. As a Gold Level sponsor, they keep our athletes warm with their merino wool layers.
The Sprint Classic is a two run event and includes Giant Slalom Gates, a 360 degree banked turn, a jump and a Nordic skate section. No experience or speedsuit is needed, but your helmet is required. Bring Nordic skate poles to help you with the skate section. You can navigate the GS portion of the race with your skate poles prior to the skate section, you’ll be glad you have them.
All races are open to the public and there are race categories for everyone, including Citizens, Juniors and Expert men and women. Members of the US Telemark Team will be present and can provide assistance to new racers. Speedsuits are not necessary, but helmets are required.
