THURSDAY NIGHT CLASSIC RACES
Join us as we bring winter fun back to Mt Ascutney with a Thursday night race series for skiers and snowboarders.
2018 SEASON INFORMATION
Racing started Thursday, January 4. First runs start at 5:30 and we'll target running til 7:00. Please plan to be there a bit early to get the necessary paperwork done. The goal is to run at least 8 weeks (not including President's Week).
What: Modified GS weekly race series. You can race as an individual, on a team of four, or both. You will race two runs and your best run counts for both your team and as an individual. The three best runs on the team count towards the team points. Individual and team points will be accumulated for the year-end awards. There won't always be a training course, but you can free ski on the hill before, in between and after your runs.
When: Beginning as soon as there is enough snow! Thursday evenings 5:30pm - 7pm during ski season with eight weeks of racing. Six of those races will count towards your end of the year points and prizes. Check back here and Ascutney Trails Facebook for changes due to snow conditions and weather etc.
Who: Open to everyone! Teams may consist of any combination of male, female, kids, adults, skiers (downhill, tele and cross-country) and snowboarders.
Where: At the awesome Ascutney Rope Tow at Ascutney Trails, Brownsville, Vt.
Cost: $45.00 per individual for the 8-week season, payable on the first week. $10.00 per night if you come on a week-by-week basis.
Social Time: We will have our wonderful warming hut open. We're encouraging a pot luck for this season, and we have a brand new grill, so BYO some goodies to cook for dinner post-race and socialize with your fellow racers.
