PLEASE READ – Racer Email Update – April 4

 

Race Competitor Registration: SOLD OUT!!!

A few notes on registration:

  • You will be prompted to choose a race distance and category:
    • Long course (~1200m of elevation gain)
      • The long course has two categories:
      • Open is the race/skinsuit division. You guys & girls know who you are.
      • Heavy Metal is for anyone without race specific gear. If you’ve got regular gear and aren’t a competitive/experienced skimo racer, this is the category for you!
    • Short Course (~800m of elevation gain)
      • The short course is Heavy Metal ONLY! Race gear folks are allowed to race the short course but will not be able to podium/win prizes. IF you want to use race gear and hope to make a podium, enter the long course! This ensures the short course is not monopolized by race gear.
  •  Please read our course description page for more info!
    •  
  • You will also be prompted to choose a category. “Open” is the race skis/skinsuits division. Heavy metal is for anyone without race specific gear. If you enter the Long course, you 
  • We will likely add extra categories (junior, masters, etc…) depending on participations. 
  • If you don’t have a Whistler Blackcomb or EPIC pass, you MUST select the non-pass holder option and purchase a day pass. This is the cheapest price available (WAY less than at the window) and you need it to get to the start line! We will be riding the gondola up and passes will be scanned. This ticket is good for riding the lifts the rest of the day so hang on to it and go shred after the race!
  • If you do have EITHER a WB season pass or EPIC pass, choose the option for SEASON PASS HOLDER. Don’t forget your pass on race day. It will be stressful to get a forgotten one reprinted right before the race.
  • If you are not already an ACC member, you must select that option with the $5 fee for a single-day ACC license. 
  • If your mom is coming to watch the race, select the option for a “Spectator Voucher”. You won’t be charged for it but it gives us an idea of how many spectators to expect. We will have vouchers ready at bib-pickup and your mom will be able to take it to the ticket window the morning of to purchase a one day ticket for $92+tax. We strongly suggest this option for spectators!
  • Registrants will receive a 50% off coupon for any Skintrack.com product. If you’re looking for a training plan or to purchase the Skintrack Manual For Ski Mountaineering Racing, use this code!
  • Registration fee is:
    • $40 for WB/EPIC pass holders
    • $85 for non-pass holders
    • Juniors (U20) may send an email to the race organizers (info@nullsquamishskimo.com) requesting a scholarship. Please send us a bit of information about yourself and we’ll do our best to make sure you can race! 
 
We are trying to keep the registration cost as low as possible. Our organizing committee is ENTIRELY volunteer and non-profit. We just want to see this happen! Any money left over after the race will be donated to a good cause to be determined. In 2018, we raised $800 for Squamish Search and Rescue.
