We will once again be joining Rocky Mountain Masters at Ski Cooper in Colorado once again this season for the annual Shin Tuck Showdown. Midwest Masters will be looking to win back the coveted Shin Tuck Trophy this year so come on out and join us!
This event is the best value in ski racing and is a great venue to try your first DH as great coaching is available and a lot of practice runs can be had. There's also formal DH training runs, 2DH races, a SG, and a SL to finish the week. We are also considering adding a Super Combined on Sunday.
We did some math, and if you attend the speed events alone, the amount of racing done this week down the 1 mile Black Powder DH trail amounts to 118 runs down Milk Run at Buck Hill! If you race in Ski Challenge at Buck Hill, that equates to over 8 YEARS of racing at Buck Hill... in only 4+ days at Ski Cooper!
You may register for the races on the Races page of midwestmasters.org. Note these races are organized by the Rocky Mountain Division, and the cost structure is different from Midwest Masters.
DISCOUNTED LODGING WITH MIDWEST MASTERS IS AVAILABLE! We are coordinating lodging for anyone and everyone who wants to join us out west! Kris Grebe is coordinating. Sign up to join us using this link, and see details on the properties we are renting.
