Race Day information
Prior to the Race Day
Ensure equipment is in working order – bindings are adjusted, the bases are waxed and
edges sharp. If you take them to a shop you have to do this 3 days prior to race day.
Remind your child that the racing program is a team effort based on total points of the team
and everyone’s effort counts.
Most (although not all) races are run in the morning and participants need to be at the ski hill between 8 and 8:30 am – the competition is usually finished around 12 noon, we break for lunch and then there is coaching for at least 2 hours after the race.
Check here for updates closer to races to ensure that there are no changes to the race schedule and to get directions to the race hill.
