"* Jr I-II, Sr Super Combined Information -

Who Any and all USSA JI-II and SR athletes who are interested in taking part in this very cool, new event.

What The area’s first Super Combined race. Come be a part of one of the Northeast’s first Super Combined races. This new discipline is the combination of one Super-G run and one Slalom run, with a 2 run combined time for race. In addition, the Super-G portion counts as an official Super-G race, in addition to the SC race. You will effectively be getting 2 races in one. This could be a huge advantage as the SG points earned here will be valid for the upcoming Gore SG qualifiers.

When Friday, Jan 16th. Team Captains Meeting is at 8:45am, controlled warm up on the race hill is at 9am, and the race start is at 11:30am. Please note that the Team Captain’s Meeting is mandatory as there will be an athlete’s roll call and everyone must be represented. There will also be some very important information about the day’s schedule and the controlled warm-up.

Where: Bristol Mountain, 5622 State Route 64, Canandaigua, NY 14424. Race Registration will be in the Main Lodge, on the ground floor. Location of the Team Captains Meeting will be announced in the lodge closer to the time, as the site floats depending on general public.

Why: You’ll be taking part in a first-time event, you’ll be earning early season SG points as well as scoring your first ever SC points, but these aren’t the most important reasons. The SC is an important new event that needs the racers and coaches to support it. The blending of SG and SL into one single event fosters excellence in technique and competitiveness across the board. In training for this event, the skills necessary to practice, ranging from high speed glide work to SL gate clearing, will make athletes stronger all around. This not only good for our racers individually, but it’s good for our state as a whole. "

Registration is at Alpinereg.com

whatever you consider an explosion in a quick flush yardsaleing everyone all over the place...

I'l always remember it... I came off the pitch going mach 10 and entered that flush wayyyy too fast I hooked a tip and just fliped 6 feet in the air with my ski tomahawking even higher over me... when I got up I stood with 6 other guys picking up pieces of their bindings and Conrad Guay skiing down with my ski laughing saying it was the best one so far

Like I said... Move your feet.
