Championships

2019 CHAMPIONSHIPS

Are set for March 1, 2, and 3, 2019 at Giants Ridge. 

Championships at Giants Ridge is a fun filled weekend of racing which all Ski Challenge teams can participate in.  Championships is not a required weekend, but it’s a weekend not to be missed.  Every team is placed in a division with like scoring teams making each division a fun, close competition for all teams.  All team racing takes place on Saturday and Sunday on Innsbruck.

We also have an open Team Race on Friday that takes place on Innsbruck.  Saturday we offer an open Individual Race held on Helsinki (King and Queen of the Hel).  Helsinki is a little steeper, more challenging run, but all are welcome to participate.  We may add an additional, optional race on Sunday which will take place on Helsinki.  Stay tuned for more information.

We have great prizes to win throughout the weekend at the various events.  We hope to see everyone there!

CHECK IN

Check in and pick up your bib number(s) in the Maintenance Building/Garage – formerly the Burnt Onion.  (The new Burnt Onion is the bar in the new chalet – don’t check in there.

Please bring an old bib from this season to stick your new bib number on.  Only one bib number allowed stuck on or written on per division.  We have a lot of numbers that overlap divisions, so it gets too confusing for the starters if you have multiple numbers on your bib.

CHANGING AND BOOTING UP

You will be able to change and boot up in the new building at the bottom and skiers left of Helsinki.  The locker room in the burnt onion will not be available for changing.
