What’s the course like?
The Jeep King of the Mountain Series uses an innovative racecourse known as “The Y.” It combines the high-speed excitement and the technical skill of Parallel Giant Slalom with the cutting edge drama of skiercross and boardercross.
Racers begin on separate courses and must maneuver Parallel Giant Slalom turns. Midway through the course, racers meet at the Y, the point where the two parallel courses merge into one. There, skiers and snowboarders must race side-by-side on a single course while negotiating banked turns and single and double rollers leading to an exciting finish.
How do I get in on this?
It’s EASY, registration for the 3rd qualifier race at Sunday River takes place Thursday, February 2nd from 12:00pm to 5:00pm at the Grand Summit Hotel in Sunday River and will be limited to the first 50 entrants. You’ll pay $25 to qualify for a shot at the best pros and be part of the best winter sports event from the inside! Your $25 registration covers your lift ticket and entry fee for the event.
Thursday evening you’ll attend a competitor meeting where you’ll receive all the information you’ll need to know about the racing format and rules.
Friday, you’ll have access to the course for practice then you’ll take 2 runs to set a time—one run down each course. The top 2 racers men and women from Friday will go on to Saturday’s race where they’ll face the pros. Plus you’ll be part of the Friday night pre-race party. Saturday, you’ll be treated like a king with full VIP access during the day as well as an invitation to the party and awards dinner that evening.
