Freeheel Life Weekender Sprint Classics at Alta Ski Area

February 25 & 26, 2017

USTSA and Freeheel Life will host two Sprint Classic races, one on Saturday February 25th and another on Sunday February 26th, 2017. These 2 run events will include GS Gates, a Nordic style jump, a 360-degree banked turn, before a short Nordic skate.

There will be race categories for everyone! Despite the fact that there is no cost for Juniors, Citizens, and the Leather Category please register online to help speed up the process for each race day! Lift tickets, if needed, will be purchased separately at the mountain but will be offered at a discounted price of $40 for race entrants. The categories are:

  • Junior - ages 17 and younger
  • Citizen - ages 18 and older
  • Expert - all ages
  • Leather Boot Category
  • Speedsuits and experience are not required.
  • Helmets are required. Competitors in the Expert Category MUST have helmets with hard ear coverings.  All other competitors are encouraged to have helmets with hard ear coverings.
  • Bring your Nordic skate poles to help with the skate.

Join us for two days of skiing and fun.  If you haven't tried racing before with jumps, gates and skating, come give it a try!

Online registration will be open until midnight on Thursday, February 23rd. Registration the day of the event will take place in the Albion Base Lodge.  Registration and check in will be from 7:30 am until 9:30 am both Saturday and Sunday. Inspection will run from 9:30-10:45 with a 11:00 start.

ALL COMPETITORS MUST SIGN A USTSA WAIVER FORM  WHEN THEY CHECK IN AT RACE HEADQUARTERS. You may print the USTSA waiver and complete it before checking in on raceday morning.
