in Announcements, Recent News by Katie Green Leave a comment

Online registration for the Phillips 66 Masters National Championships is officially open! To register, racers will need to log in to skiracereg.com, select the race series: “USSS Masters Alpine National Championships” and then select each event you will be participating in. Don’t forget about the banquet on Saturday night! It’s going to be a really fun time. The deadline to register without the $10 late fee is Jan. 31, 2018 and the hard deadline is Feb. 4, 2018.

If you think this will be your typical race weekend at Okemo (which is already pretty great), you are in for a big surprise! We have been working tirelessly to make this Nationals event one that is talked about for years to come. We are pulling out all the stops to give our racers something that is so unique, so much fun, so… Vermont, that future Nationals will just seem meh. Stay tuned for more details on these special events and sponsors.

To help with any questions we have created a Nationals Page on the NEMS website with lots of useful info. There is also a Nationals Event page on the NEMS Facebook page. Both the website and Facebook page will be updated as new info becomes available so make sure to check the website and follow the event page so that you are in the know on all things Nationals!!

Oh, in case you forgot, opening weekend at Sunapee is 31 days away! So think snow, try to get some gate training in and we’ll see ya out there!

3rd Annual Battle of the Beer Leagues

in Announcements, Race Overview, Recent News by Katie Green Leave a comment

Don’t miss out on your chance for glory, pride and GOOD BEER!!  

The Ragged Beer League Challenge begins on Sunday, February 5th at 10am at the NEMS GS at Ragged Mountain.  It’s $55 to enter and that includes a ticket.  Last year’s fierce competitors included teams from Wachusett, Loon, Pats Peak, Gunstock, Nashoba Valley, & Waterville. Don’t let your beer league go unrepresented!  

The party follows, 45 minutes after the race, upstairs in Elmwood Lodge with a pizza and prizes!!

         The Rules are:

  •  Everyone forms teams of six (6), any gender or age mix, it doesn’t matter.
  • We run the race as normal.
  • Men’s overall finish list is broken into four quarters (A, B, C, D) and ladies list is broken into halves (A, B).
  • Each of the quarters and halves is scored with old World Cup scoring (A divisions 25, 20, 15, 12 etc, and the rest 20, 15, 12, 10 etc) and all finishers points added up for the team they are on.  So…. if you had six racers in a field of say 60 men and 12 women and your men finished  2nd,  16th,  24th, and 31st and your women finished 5th and 7th you would probably have the winning team.   That would equal  20+ 20+6+20 + 10+20= 96.

 

Do you think you can create a winning team?  Bring it!
