The lifts are not opened to racers and public until 8:00 am.

In order to reach the race hill, exit the lift on the top to your right and follow Angel Drop to Homerun. Homerun is also visible from the main lift.
Discounted lift tickets ($69.00) will be sold at the designated ticket window for racers and their families from 7:15 am. List of registered racers will be at that window. You do not need to have your bib in hand to purchase discounted tickets.
Walk passes are required for all non-skiing spectators. Walk pass (looks like a lift ticket) is free but you will need to sign a release. Walk passes can be obtained at the race registration or a ticket window with a signed release form which is attached to this announcement and will be also available at the registration.
The racer, volunteer and walk release forms will be distributed before the race and only limited number of forms will be available at the registration. If possible, please fill out your form in advance to make the registration more efficient. All uphill walking traffic – please remain on the right-hand side of the trail as you ascend.
Official posting board (results, DQs etc.) will be located at the timing building (start). Times on the hand-written posting board at the finish area and on http://ussalivetiming.com are unofficial.
Absolutely no free skiing on the race hill – please respect the instructions of the race organizers and coaches during the course inspection to ensure good conditions for all racers throughout the race.
Confine skiing at race speeds to the race course — fast or reckless skiing outside the race course will result in loss of skiing privileges at Whitetail.
