2018 Race Schedule

Junior Racing Release Waiver

All skiers between the ages of 5 and 18, of intermediate ability or better, are welcome to participate in the Snow Trails Junior Racing Program. This is a volunteer program designed to assist junior skiers in developing good skiing fundamentals and ski racing skills. There is no cost for the program itself, but each participant must have a valid lift ticket or pass and are responsible for providing their own equipment, clothing and transportation. This program is staffed entirely by volunteer coaches, and parents are encouraged to help out and participate when needed. Our racing equipment (poles, flags, timers, etc.) have been purchased entirely with money raised from entry fees in our weekend races and camps, and all fees go back into the program.

Each racer must have their parent or legal guardian complete (legibly), sign and return a Release, Waiver and Indemnity form to be eligible for participation in the program. Past participants who have previously submitted a signed Release form need not provide a new one unless there has been a change in contact information, legal custody or guardianship. Children who cannot ride the chairlift by themselves must be accompanied on the lift by a responsible family member or designated adult.

Racing practice sessions are held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., weather and skiing conditions permitting. Although a racer is not required to attend all practice sessions, it is expected that racers enrolled in the program who are at the ski area during practice times shall participate in the session. All racers are subject to the rules and regulations of the ski area and the coaching staff reserves the right to exclude a skier from the program for any misconduct or offensive behavior. Practice courses are reserved exclusively for junior ski team participants, parents and coaches. 

If you have completed and returned a signed Release form, your email address will be on our distribution list and notices, such as cancellations, are communicated through email. We are also developing a mobile app for this purpose. A schedule of races will be distributed or can be obtained at the customer service desk and the Snow Trails Website (see above link).

Release forms may be obtained from the Guest Services Desk located in the Main Lodge as well as the Snow Trails Website (see above link), and should be returned to Guest Services in the Main Lodge. For further information, contact coaches:

Carnival Sale

Our Snow Groomers will be out today, pushing and spreading to get ready for our 57th Annual Ski Carnival to take place this Saturday and Sunday - no matter what! We will reopen the Slopes only with normal hours beginning at 9AM Saturday. As a result, the new Tubing Bobsled event will unfortunately have to be cancelled. We will host all other Carnival events both days as planned, unless weather delays are necessary. On Sunday at 9AM we will open both the Slopes and Tubing Park and be happy to host you for our second day of Carnival.

Although you might see percentages of precipitation at nearly 100%, most turn-out to be intermittent r@#% during only a portion of the day, as a front moves through, so don’t let it ruin your Carnival fun! We know many of you have already made plans and reservations and you will not want to miss it!!

We will be getting back to Normal Hours on the Slopes and in the Tubing Park this coming week. We are happy to see the forecast showing cooler temps at night and plan to carry-on. This unseasonably warm weather is unfortunate, however we hope winter is not over yet! We will look for sustained snowmaking temps in the forecast to hopefully get back to snowmaking and add to our base of snow for an even better finish to the season.

Our plan is to keep the fun going as far into March as possible. Our typical season runs December thru mid-March. We will look forward to you joining us! If a days weather is in question for you, before heading-out, please check-back here to our daily updated Snow Report for the latest.

Surface Conditions: Wet snow
Notes: Snow base is holding-up against these warm temps and precipitation. Our crew will be out in our fleet of Pisten Bully Snow Cat Groomers pushing and spreading the snow for reopening.
