This past Sunday we had a really great NYSSRA meeting (that seems like an oxymoron right?!) but truly…productive, informative and a lot of great things are coming your way for the 13-14 ski season. It should be one of the best ones ever! This is the top 10 down-n-dirty pieces of information that you should know…
1) The race calendar: you can visit it here. This has a list of all the NYSSRA sanctioned events in the state. If an event says “Proposed” in front of it…it means that the official sanctioning information and registration information has not been received but it should be coming before Novemeber 1st.
2) Race Organizers: Please make sure you review the changes to the sanctioning forms seen here. Create your skireg pages, send in your paperwork and let us help you promote your event every way we can! Let’s see if we can get it all in by Nov. 1st !!
3) Wilkinson Cup: Five big race weekends in NY this season. All worth double NYSSRA points. Exciting formats. Deep race fields. Great prizes, trophy and cash reward on the line for the Wilkinson Cup Champion. See details here
