This year the Berkshire Race Squad supported by Snowsport South are breaking new ground and running a Ski Cross event at the Bracknell slope on Saturday the 1st October. Entries for the event (Â£12) are open via this website. It will run from 14:00 to ~19:00 depending on numbers. It will be possible to borrow slope skis (but this should be booked in advance – please contact email@example.com).
The course will consist of 2 entry level jumps linked by GS turns around stubbies and should be easily managed by any skier of a reasonable standard. For those novices who decide that they cannot manage the jumps but still want to participate in the race (Individual runs only), there is an opportunity to miss the jumps (novices will not be entered into the Head to Heads or Knockout). Head to Heads with 2 racers on course at any one time will be run in 3 age groups. The top seeds in each age group will then progress into the Knockouts.
A couple of years ago a charity Ski Cross event was organised on the same slope and it was a most enjoyable ski race event. A BBQ will be available. We look forward to seeing you there.
The race bulletin and entry list will be posted here and sent out to all entrants after entries have been closed (midnight on Thursday 29 September).
