Ski Challenge | Week 1 | January 3, 2020
Quick Links
Welcome Back Racers!
Our regular season kicks off this Sunday, January 5 at Buck Hill and Wild Mountain! Every racer needs to check in prior to racing. At check in, we will make sure a waiver has been signed and fees have been paid. Once this is all complete you will receive your bib for the season as well as a souvenir T-shirt.

Every racer who is on a roster should have received a confirmation e-mail. If you have opted out of our e-mails then you won't receive a confirmation (and you won't be seeing this e-news)

If you haven't paid yet, you can pay with cash, check or credit card. There will be a service fee placed on all credit card transactions. No one will be allowed to race until a waiver is signed and payment is received.

For more information see the links below!
Pacesetter Trials
If you are interested in becoming a pacesetter and average a 12 or lower handicap, come out to our pacesetter trial. You can earn points that can be used toward your race fees!

We have no one listed as a pacesetter for Wild Mountain Sunday PM, Wednesday, or Friday. Please let me know if you would be willing to be listed as a pacesetter for any or all of these leagues.
