The race directors reserve the right to delay the start, alter the course, or cancel the race based on snow and weather conditions.
The race will take place partially in the Mt Ashland Ski Area, all racers are required to comply with any directives of the ski area staff or ski patrol.
Participants must wear a helmet
Racers must use skins affixed to skis/splitboard on all ascents marked with green flags (no lightweight nordic gear or snowshoes).
Racers must descend with skis/boards in “downhill” mode. You may not descend with skins on. Descents are marked with red flagging.
You must make sure transition crews see your bib number before exiting the transition zone.
You must transition within “transition zones” marked in blue. You must set poles flat on the ground in transitions (not upright). This rule is for the safety of all racers and volunteers in the transition area.
You must carry your own food/water and extra layers. There are no aid stations on course.
If you turn around before the checkpoints or the finish, you MUST check in with a course marshal or the race directors at the finish area. Otherwise search and rescue may commence on your behalf.
We will have awards to the top 3 in the recreational course.
For the full course we will have a SkiMo category (single ski + binding weight <1450g), a Heavy Metal category, and a splitboard category along with gender and age divisions
