A sign up sheet will be available online for each event.
There will be no equipment provided to the Athletes. Each athlete will be given a stretch bib with a number on it to wear at each race. These bibs will need to be returned after each race as the numbers vary for participants from race to race.
All equipment can be purchased at local ski shops. Used equipment is also a good option and can be found at various ski swaps and sometimes online on our Facebook page. Coaches can also help athletes figure out what is the best equipment for their ability and race level.
