Ted Gilbert Memorial Saloon Race Series 2020

The Ted Gilbert Memorial Saloon Series is an 8-week race league for adults age 21 and up. Races are held from 10:30am-3:00pm on Mondays throughout the ski season excluding January 20th and February 17th, 2020. The series begins January 6th, 2020 and ends March 9th, 2020. At the end of the season, an awards ceremony and banquet will be held for the participating members.

League members may create teams comprised of five racers. All league members are eligible to race and earn points weekly. Male and female racers will not be scored separately as this is a co-ed race 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.
