Two Free Sprint Classic Races – Alta, UT
February 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - February 14, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
A weekend of FREE racing at Alta. A Sprint Classic race will be run each day and there will be no entry fee charged for Junior or Citizen racers. There should be time following each race to rip it up on the slopes of this great resort!
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.
The schedule each day is:
Registration from 8am to 930am
Course Inspection: 9:30am to 10:45am
First run at 11am.
The best parking option for this event is the upper grizzly lot which is north of the Albion lodge at Alta’s upper ski area. There is a way to ski in / ski out of this lot if you get there early. We will have signs posted indicating the parking area and the registration location.
The registration will be near the east entry of the Albion lodge. All minors (younger than 18 years old) must bring a USTSA Waiver form signed by their parent. Download USTSA Waiver Form Here. All team members should download and fill out all the waivers and an entry form to speed up the registration process (other racers can also download and complete the form to help with registration).
Entry fees will be waived for all racers except those who are racing in the elite class. The discount lift ticket price has not been set yet, and these will be purchased each day at the Alta Ticket window.
Awards will be at 4pm each day at the Albion area. Those people who can collect swag/ prizes to donate to this race should do so and deposit those with me before awards…
More information will be posted here as it becomes available. You can also join US Telemark Ski Team on Facebook and follow us on Instagram @ustelemarkski.
