2023 Sunday Race Series Sunday mornings at Mt. Holly, Pine Knob, and Alpine Valley
This is our popular race series where athletes can race in their own age group for single races as well as collect season long “World Cup” points. Weekly prizes and medals are awarded to athletes of all ages. The Sunday Race Series runs for seven weeks alternating at Mt. Holly, Pine Knob, and Alpine Valley for seven total races. This year we will be adding easy slalom races and a combi if conditions permit.
This weekend is our first Sunday Series Race of the season hosted at Pine Knob. Sunday Series races at Pine Knob are ran in two phases. Please review the below reporting instructions and race procedures for Sunday Series races at Pine Knob, to include this weekend's race. Races hosted by Mt. Holly and Alpine Valley DO NOT follow the same procedure.
Phase 1 will be ran in the morning for the U6, U8 and U10 athletes
Phase 1 racers will report to the venue at 9:30am for course inspection and racer meeting
Phase 1 Race will commence from 10:00am to 11:00am
The timer will print results for Phase 1 groups upon completion of the U8 Group and provide a printout to the coaches announcing the standings

Phase 1 racers and families can then leave, if needed, the venue after announcements and door prizes

If your athlete is apprehensive with skiing on the race hill and is not ready to participate in this weekend's SSR, I would highly recommend you and you athlete(s) still attend the race to observe. This will give you a good idea of what to expect when your athlete(s) are ready to participate.
Additionally we have the Donut Trailer for Pine Knob Sunday Series races. The Donut Trailer accepts cash and credit cards, so please bring your appetite if you are interested in purchasing donuts, coffee or hot chocolate.
