March 2-3, 2013
Join us for the first annual Jack-N-Jill Randonee Weekend! We have the No-Name Scramble on Saturday at 1:30 PM and the more challenging Jack-N-Jill race on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM. It’s going to be a fun-filled weekend with something for everyone with prizes from several great businesses as well as live music, and food + drink specials!
You may wonder, what is this “randonee” we speak of? Randonee, also known as Alpine Touring, refers to a type of skiing in which you ascend the mountain using your own power with the aid of special bindings and “skins”, a Velcro like material that sticks to the snow. A Randonee Race involves “skinning” up a set track and then racing down a designated course. The winner is the person who completes the course in the least amount of time. Snowboarders welcome!
Make a weekend of it! Below is the schedule of events and race guidelines:
- No-Name Scramble (in-bounds randonee race) starts at 1:30 PM. All participants must be registered by 1 PM. Entry fee is $10. Participants may skin, hike, or snowshoe up the designated uphill route.
