Races? Sweet! It looks like I have two and a half hours to learn how to ski.

What type of races? Is this GS or Slalom or Downhill and individual timed or dual, etc.? How many runs, etc.? Need more details on what the racing is all about so we can sort through our collection of ski's to pick out the ripping fast ones.

J Todd - It's a short downhill dual race. It's about a 35-45 second run.

The Sports Series is different from the Games. It's about the everyday athletes in the community getting together and having a low-key, active, good time. It's less about stopwatch and form. We're looking to get CrossFitters out of the box and participating in other athletic endeavors. Experts with a full collection of skis for different conditions will have a great time hanging out, and hopefully help some newbies get going in the sport. This is also your time to shine! You may not beat Mikko on the training floor, but you might just smoke him on the slopes!

See you out there.

I have heard rumors that each person will have to make a run on skis and on a snowboard, is that the case?

5. Jimi Letchford wrote...

Cody -- You have the option to do either snowboard or ski runs. Your choice.

See you out there!

If you aren't planning on participating in the races but still want to come ski and hang out, do you still need to register on active.com or can you just show up and buy your lift ticket there?

7. Madeline Letchford wrote...

Jake,

Just come out to hang and ski. We've secured $60 lift tickets for CrossFitters. Be sure to mention it when you're buying your ticket. Check out the tentative schedule so you can be sure to make it to the key events of the day!
