Thanks for the input Philth!
Do you know of similar events in the North-East? I seem to remember somone ( maybe it was you?) posting about a skier-cross event last season. But it has to be open to the general public..I'm by no means a pro [img]redface.gif[/img]
I'm no good in the park or doing bumps, but I like speed.
BTW, Tremblant has snowmaking. Last year they had about 15 runs open in mid-December.
Were you really thanking me?
There's a whole little series of eastern skiercrosses--I know Killington and Mt. Snow have a race series, and I'm sure there are others.
Fairly big variety of backgrounds and levels, but I wouldn't do it if I weren't comfortable with racing and getting a little air. And being next to three or four other guys while you're doing it.
Check the websites--I don't know any of the dates.
I would seriously advise against it.
After watching professional & former world cup racers who had trained all summer for it shake, cry & hallucinate @ the 24 hours of Aspen, I cannot imagine a mere mortal even contemplating it.
if you do it wear body armour for when you star fish.
groomed snow gets very cold & hard @ 4 am.
