Big Mountain Comp Kirkwood

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 



I have a bit of a crazy favor to ask.  I am heading up to the Kirkwood big mountain comp this week.  I am wondering if anyone from the central valley(california) close to Modesto/Stockton(maybe Sacramento) could possibly help me out with a ride.  I am asking simply because I am 17 and my parents will be working.  Also, I need to see about release forms since I am 17 and not 18.  So, I know this is a crazy request, but Id really like to compete.

Never mind, have to be 18 to compete

 If you have aspirations of doing these comps, you should try head up anyway to watch and learn if you can.


And a tip if you try to sign up next year...there is typically no on-site registration.   You have to sign up MONTHS in advance and the qualifiers typically sell out very fast.  I believe this year's Kirkwood qualifier sold out in about 15 minutes from when they opened up registration. 


It's a competition just to get into the competition.  heh.

Wasn't there a 14-17 year old class available?

I know it is the end of the season and all, but I want to talk a bit about the comp at kirk.  I went to the finals and saw a few guys put down some runs.  I realize that the day was not nearly decent for a comp, but I was able to compare myself to the skills of somebody like Lopez, Dutton, Greener, etc.....These guys skied pretty decently for the ice rock death hard conditions.  Now, that being said, I have had these competiton dreams since being a little kid, and wish to make them a reality, and after seeing the comp, I think I just may be able to.  I am trying to place my priorities next year, and just want to run them by some of you guys here.  Next year I will turn 18 in December, just in time for the competition season.  I will still be in high school next year and will have free time for lots of skiing(comps).  Would this be a good idea?  I know this may seem like a dumb question for various reasons, but I just want to hear opinions.  And also, I would appreciate a schedule for locations of comps.
