While the skiing on Elip has been great, there is not enough snow to put a gate in. We will be postponing drags for two weeks to allow for more snow to fall.
Qualifying night will be Jan. 23.
Four weeks of racing: Jan. 30, Feb. 6, 13 & 20.
Make up day, if needed, will be Feb. 27.
The good news is you have time to get more friends to sign up and the cost will only be $330! (Those who have paid already will be issued a refund of $170.)
NEW: We will accept individual registrations and compile entries into teams of five. If we do not receive enough individual entries (or in multiples of five) to create a team, individuals will not be able to participate. Individual registration fee is $75. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register as an individual.
Everyone needs to complete the following waiver prior to Jan. 23. If you have not done so, please take a moment to fill it out.
I feel the need, the need for speed! Thursday Night Drags are back, are you ready for the action? Grab 6 or more of your favorite skier or boarder friends for this fun race series event.

If for some reason we need to cancel we will try and do so by 4 pm on race day, but do reserve the right to cancel up until start time.
