Attention Telemark skiers – Gunstock Mountain Resort is hosting two sanctioned Telemark Giant Slalom (GS) races under the lights on February 2, 2013! This event includes two back-to-back GS races and provides a chance to meet and race with members of the U.S. Telemark Ski Team!
Telemark GS is unique because it features a Nordic jump. The Nordic jump gauges the field’s ski jumping ability, with a 3 second penalty assessed for missing (landing uphill) of the jump line.
Race categories include Citizen’s (just for fun), Junior 1, Junior 2, and Elite. Competitors racing in the Elite category must have a current USTSA competitive membership (available at www.ustsa.org). All other categories are open to the public.
Register online at www.ustsa.org until January 31st or at Gunstock Mountain Resort on race day.
