2020 (Preliminary) Schedule Released

in Announcements by Matt Mitsis Leave a comment
Greetings racers-
NEMS is excited to release the preliminary schedule for the upcoming 2020 race season! I want to emphasize that this is just a “preliminary” schedule. While most of the events are locked in, we are still working on finalizing a handful of the event details. So please keep an eye out for updates! 

A couple of things to note:

  • Suicide 6 – There will be gate training before the race. There will be a delayed start that day to allow racers to get in some gate time. We will have more info on this.
  • Shawnee Peak – We are expecting to hold two (2) races in one day.
  • Gunstock – Welcome back!! It’s been awhile old friend. This will be a non-sanctioned USSS race. Expect this to be more than just your “normal” slalom race.
  • West Mountain – Valentines Day Weekend. Start earning those brownie points now!
  • Stoneham – Not a typo! There will be FIS Masters races in Canada this year. It will be a great event with racers from across the U.S. and the world in attendance. The races won’t count towards Sise Cup. Unfortunately it will conflict with the Hoch Race. We tried to move the race but couldn’t. FIS races are run a bit different then NEMS and require a FIS license, so we will have a lot more info on this.
  • Finals – We are still working out the final details for our finals weekend. Stay tuned!
  • Nationals – Expect an announcement on where the Eastern Division will be defending the National Championship very soon.
