First night of racing: Jan 11th Download the adult race league registration form
There are always teams looking for additional racers and we’ll get you on a team.

Teams will be formed for people who do not have a sponsor. Each team should consist of six racers. Each night, the top four of the six times will count towards team score. Open to all skiers 21 years and older. Cost is only $70 (cheap!) per person. Discounted lift tickets may be purchased one hour prior to the race for only $20. Just show your race bib to the friendly person at the ticket window to receive your discount.

Bittersweet Ski School will set the race courses for intermediate skiing abilities. One course will be a slalom course and the other a modified open slalom.  All racers must have their first run completed within 45 minutes of start time, and both runs completed within 90 minutes.

The running order will be random. Each racer is allowed two runs per course. You may run under your own bib number only.

Scoring will be based on the handicap system with a Bittersweet Ski Instructor as the “0” time or pacesetter. Each skier receives a Handicap based on their age and sex. Each racer receives points as follows:

  • 4 for gold
  • 3 for silver
  • 2 for bronze
  • 1 for participation

The total of the top four individual points will be the team score for the night. Team scores will be placed on this website under

“Racing Results” (www.bittersweetskischool.com) and posted in our lounge.

Disqualification will result if:

  • Racer does not run
  • Racer skis through course incorrectly
  • Racer pre-runs the course
  • Racer does not have lift ticket
  • Other infractions of FIS rules

Protests should be taken to race officials immediately and settled late in the bar over several beers. Remember, this is for fun!
