Hey Everyone– We know that some of you have already signed up for the Tecnica Winter Finish Giant Slalom at the Skiway on March 17. When we first put our calendar together this year we marked that as a race to consider, but not part of the core plan. The big question was whether or not it would be appropriate for the younger races….would they be up to the challenge, and would the hill cooperate. Now as the sun is shining on the end of a great season (great skiing wise, if not conditions wise) we do think it would be a great opportunity for any Mountain Race skiers (with a USSA card) who are up for a challenge and want to give it a try. Their will be a J6 class as well as J5, J4 and J3. The J6 skiers (born 2004 & 2003) will be grouped with the J5 racers but will ski first.
The race will begin at the start house on Worden’s Schuss, go over the “waterfall” and finish near the start of Green Pastures (not the bottom). It’s a real GS hill, but one that we think any or all of the Mountain Race skiers are well prepared to tackle.
To enter, you can either register through AlpineReg.com or you can fill out a voucher/entry form and send that with a check for $39 to Dave Caffry our race administrator. Rather than send it to the Ford Sayre mailbox, you should mail it directly to his house:
Dave Caffry, 263 Dorchester Rd. Lyme, NH 03768
If you have any questions as to whether or not your child is up for it. Drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
