NO BUCK HILL SUNDAY AM – on January 15
There is no race this coming Sunday, January 15 for the Buck Hill Sunday AM race. Buck Hill is having a FIS race all weekend. Sunday PM will still go on as scheduled.
Sunday, January 22 we will be having a double race. This will be considered week 2 & 3.
BHSUNA – HUTCH
Please try and clean up the best you can after being in the Hutch. Throw away any paper products and pick up any garbage that may have fallen to the floor.
TABLES IN THE BUCK HILL EVENT CENTER ROOM
If your team moves tables together for your race night in the Buck Hill Event Center Room, please move them apart and put in original place before you leave. This will help our server for the night get the room ready for the next day.
Pre-orders – Don’t forget to use the pre-order forms and write when you estimate you will be coming in. That way you will get your order in a timely manner. If you order after you get it in, it will take a lot longer to get your food. You can use the pre-order forms for both food and beverages.
REGISTRATION FEES DO NOT INCLUDE LIFT TICKETS
Just a reminder that your race fee of $170 is strictly covering all expenses and fees for racing. You can go here to see more about fees: RACE FEES. All racers must purchase a separate lift ticket or have a season pass from the ski area. Buck Hill offers a discount if you purchase your ticket ahead of time online.

LIABILITY FORMS FOR THE SEASON
Every Ski Challenge member needs to fill out a liability waiver online. This only needs to be done once and will be completed if you fill out an online registration form. If you did not register online, paid at the hill and signed a paper waiver, this only covers you for the race you signed at. You still need to sign an online waiver. You can go here to see if you have signed a waiver online: ONLINE WAIVER PAGE
We will be sending an email after week 1 to all racers who have not set signed an online form.
Happy Retirement to Joel and Linda!
Joel and Linda have worked with Ski Challenge for 30+ years. They were an integral part of the formative years. Linda and Joel first worked for Patricia Lecy, the original owner of Ski Challenge. They helped set up leagues at Wild Mountain, Welch Village, Powder Ridge, Hyland, and Buck Hill. They also helped enormously at our Championships at Giants Ridge. They have decided to step away from Ski Challenge work and will be greatly missed!
