Fireball Race Series 2020

The Fireball Race Series is an 8-week race league for adults 21 and up. Races are held from 4:00pm-7:00pm on Friday nights throughout the ski season (excluding Friday, February 21st) starting January 3rd, 2020 and ending February 28th, 2020. Food will be served from 5:00pm–7:00pm. At the end of the season, an awards ceremony and banquet will be held for the participating members.

Each team will be comprised of five members with all five members eligible to race and earn points weekly. Male and female racers will not be scored separately as this is a co-ed series.

If a team member is unable to attend a race, he/she may be replaced with a substitute. Alternates will be drawn at random from the sub pool on an as needed basis unless a specific racer is arranged to be an alternate with the team captain prior to the start of the race. The team captain must notify the race committee if there will be a need for an alternate and if they have already arranged for one. Non-league members may act as substitutes on a per-race basis however, the substitute fee does not include a lift ticket; all non-league member substitutes must have a valid lift ticket or season pass to participate.
