COURSE DESCRIPTION and TRANSFER DIRECTIONS

Due to the wide range of ages and abilities in the Summit Mt. Challenge we have choreographed our Stage layout appropriately for our categories. Our courses are designed for the middle of a given group’s ability; not the best in each group per se.
PRE-RIDING IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.  Please read below to be clear on your course layout and design!

*Juniors Boys and Girls 10 & Under and Juniors Boys and Girls 11-12 will do 2 runs on the Stage 1 description. You will NOT go to the ski area and you will NOT ride B-Line. Your results will be based on combined time for those two identical stages.

*Junior Girls 13-15, Junior Boys 13-15, Junior Girls 16-18, Beginner Men and Beginner Women will race 3 stages. HOWEVER Stage 1 and Stage 3 will be identical. You will NOT ride B-Line. Results will be based on combined time for those three stages. Beginner Men and Women wanting to ride B-Line for Stage 3 must upgrade to Sport
