10:00am (at the top of Lift #5) – 2:00pm
Competition Begins (LeMans Start)
We will start with what’s called a LeMans start at the top of lift #5. During pre-race announcements everyone will be required to put their skis and boards into a designated area before you get onto the start line. When the 3, 2, 1 goes you will run about 100 feet to a bamboo pole, run around the pole and make your way back to your skis and boards and head to the Upper Al’s Run entrance. It’s a bit of a lung burner but a lot of fun and separates everyone right away.
Awards / Prizes
4:00 p.m. at the Martini Tree Bar. Teams who raise the most money, ski the most runs and have the most fun will win great prizes.
During the Awards Party, we will be drawing random bib numbers for a chance to win prizes from our great sponsors (but you have to be there to win!)
