Alta Town Race Series

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Alta Town Race Series.
The race crew looks forward to another fun and successful series.

The Alta Town Race Series courses will be set to challenge the more experienced racers, as well as being easy to understand and ski for the less experienced. Our goal on the race crew is to see everyone finish. Due to work commitments of most participants the races are one run only.

Open to anyone 18 years of age or older who wishes to participate.

Location: Sunnyside Race Arena

Race hours: 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

Race days are Tuesdays starting January 16th. through April 3rd. No Town Series racing on Tuesday February 20th.

There three scheduled open dates. Any postponed event will be made up on the first available open date.

You may race as an individual or on a team. Team names must be unoffensive / family friendly.

Team Definition

League Definitions
Alpine A – experienced racers and serious competitors.
Alpine B – racing for fun, for skiers with little or no racing experience.
Last season’s B league winner must race A league the following season. Telemark is one league only.

In the event of a ruling inquiry the race crew will adhere to USSA rules. Rules are available from the race crew.

Start order is Tele Women, Tele Men, B league Women, A league Women, B league Men, A league Men.

If parallel turns executed in Tele, league is a DQ.

No temporary substitutions are allowed. Permanent substitutions require prior race committee approval.

Losing a ski more than two gates above the finish is a DQ. Straddling or missing a gate is a DQ. You are encouraged to correct these mistakes by hiking back up to make the gate. Your team may need your points.

Since a female time is required for a team score it is in the team’s best interest to have more than one female.

We do not use race bibs. You will be assigned a number at the first race. Please remember your number to help simplify time keeping and scoring.

Points are awarded to the World Cup Point Schedule for individuals.
