Sprint Classic Race – Vail, CO
January 28 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
This event is hosted by the Vail Mountain School and USTSA. The Vail Mountain School’s telemark program has been an excellent partner, hosting a weekend race for multiple years.
The Sprint Classic is a two run event and includes Giant Slalom Gates, a 360 degree banked turn, a jump and a Nordic skate section. No experience or speedsuit is needed, but your helmet is required. Bring Nordic skate poles to help you with the skate section. You can navigate the GS portion of the race with your skate poles prior to the skate section, you’ll be glad you have them.
All races are open to the public and there are race categories for everyone, including Citizens, Juniors and Expert men and women. Members of the US Telemark Team will be present and can provide assistance to new racers. Speedsuits are not necessary, but helmets are required.
More information will be posted here as it becomes available. You can also join US Telemark Ski Team on Facebook and follow us on Instagram @ustelemarkski. For more info, please visit ustsa.org.
