Sunday’s U10 race is here: https://www.adminskiracing.com/node/65096
Registration will begin at 7:30 AM and end at 8:30 am.  Registration will be in the Killington Ski Club Building which is just up the hill to the right from the K1 Lodge, which is the lodge that is at the very end of the access road by the K1 gondola.  When you are looking at the ski club, instead of going in the front door, walk around to the right in the back of the building and head up the stairs and in the back door. Then go down stairs to the Johnny O Multi-Purpose room.  Bibs and lift tickets will be handed out at registration – remind your athlete to put the bib on right away and not to remove it. Killington requests (and so do I) that you have your athlete go to the registration table on their own – it’s a great way to get our athletes more involved in the process of race day!  I recommend getting there early! Killington is a busier place than everywhere else we go!    Note that you MUST keep your stuff in the K1 Lodge – not in the Ski Club.
Parent tickets are available for $50 at Registration only – cash or check to KMS only.  They are for parents only and only 2 per family.  They will stop selling them at the end of registration. There were issues in past years surrounding parent tickets – if you happen to hold a pass that is good at a sister mountain of Killington‘s, which would entitle you to a day ticket you must go to K1 GUEST Services to redeem this ticket.  They will not give you a free parent ticket at registration – KSC/KMS actually has to purchase these from the mountain and it isn’t their place to give them out for free.  You cannot see the race on foot without going for a decent length hike.
The coaches will meet the kids outside of the K1 base lodge at 8:00 AM to head to the course for inspection and a free run.  Please be sure that they are on time – the race trail is not right outside of the lodge so it is imperative they are on time to go for inspection. The race will be on Bunny Buster, which is most directly accessed by the Snowdon Quad or Snowdon Triple lift (whichever is running – quad at 8 am and triple at 9 am) which you will get to by going under the K1 gondola and continuing straight until you come to either one (the triple is first and the quad a bit further). Once over there, the best way to lap on the course will be to ride the t-bar.
The race is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am.
For U12s: Athletes should listen to their coaches for directions on where to be when for second run inspection and start time. Second run will be in reverse bib order within gender.  So last girl to go first run goes first in second run. Same with the boys.  Awards are based on best combined time.  Medals for the top ten in each gender.
For U10s: The second run will begin shortly after the conclusion of the second run.  Second run will be in reverse bib order within gender.  So last girl to go first run goes first in second run. Same with the boys.  Awards are based on best single run.  Medals for the top ten in each gender.
For both U10 and U12s awards will be 45 minutes after the completion of the race outside of the Killington Ski Club.  Encourage your children to go skiing after their second run – freeskiing on new and varied terrain is a great way to improve racing skills!!
I look forward to seeing everyone this weekend!
