Race details:
The series will consist of solo racer events at each date. There will be a lightweight gear and heavy metal division at each race. Racers from each category will be ranked and given points for their placing. Points from each race will be totaled for the season and we will crown overall Cup Champions from each division.
 Race #1 preliminary map can be found here:Race #1 map *RD may make changes as event nears. 

Expected Full Course will consist of approximately 2,500 ft of vertical with 1 long lap and 2 short laps. There will be 3 short boot packs and several transitions. Exact course will be determined by snow conditions. Short Course will consist of 1 single full top to bottom loop. This is an unranked division and thus racers can choose to descend any trail that best suits their ability with no penalty.

Requirements for all races:
·      All "Skimo" category racers must wear a helmet
·      A single ski/binding weight of 1,360 grams (3 lbs) will be the cutoff for entering the Heavy Metal Division. Boots may be factored in at RD's discretion.
·      Poles need to be on snow during transitions
·      All "skimo & heavy metal" racers must have a pack that skis can attach to for races requiring a boot pack section. Short course will not need a bag.
·      A tow line can be implemented in the 2 Person Team race (ascent only)
·      Other rules may be imposed by the race director at each event
·      Racers are NOT required to wear masks while outside by the RD, if the resort imposes this that will be outside our choice). Racers will abide by the resort rules for indoor usage of masks
