General Information

Individual times will be used to determine team results, and will also decide who qualifies for the afternoon pro format elimination round.  This format will be based on two run differential timing, with the winner advancing to the next round. 

World Cup points for individuals and teams will be allocated based on the results from the morning race and added to the standings to determine the overall winners. Results from the afternoon races will NOT count towards individual and team standings. 

At the final awards party we will be giving away awards for both the team and individual categories, as well as prizes for the elimination bracket winners.  We also have lots of great raffle prizes to give away so don’t miss the party and yes, you must be present to win the raffle prizes.  

Spectator access to the bottom of Bear Trap by foot is via the Buckaroo Gondola.  You do not need a lift pass if you are on foot.  

All competitors must be on time for their starts or they will be disqualified on that particular run! Also, if you qualify for the elimination brackets and CANNOT race, please let us know ASAP. And if you are close to qualifying, you may want to stick around to see if you get in if someone else can’t stay. 

Time differential for disqualification, did not finish: 1.50 seconds.
