Divisions

  • 3D Division (formally Open and Sport divisions) - $160/team
    Limited to 55 teams
    The 3D Division will be replacing the Open (Pro) and Sport (Amateur) divisions. This new format is being utilized during the 2019 race season. The 3D format provides for a uniform system which is self-sorting. Competitors do not need to “estimate” their skill level. Performance dictates which “D”, or Division, the finishing time falls within.

    All competitors, regardless of ability, run on the same track. The three divisions are then determined by time brackets. With the 3D format, the OVERALL fastest time of the race is used to set the time brackets for the three divisions.

    1st Division: These are the teams with the fastest times and the cleanest runs.

    2nd Division: These are teams who ran one (1.0) second or SLOWER than the OVERALL fastest time and cleanest run.

    3rd Division: These are teams who ran two (2.0) seconds or SLOWER than the OVERALL fastest time and cleanest run.

    Horses and skiers in the 3D Division may not cross-enter into any other division.

  • Novice - $80/team
    Limited to 35 teams
    Novice teams are considered to be beginning level competitors riding horses that may not have speed enough to be competitive in the open or the sport class. Any horse that wins 1st place in this class twice must move to a higher level of competition for the following years event. Any skier that wins 1st place in this class twice must move to a higher level of competition for the following years event. Horse and skier may not cross enter into the 3D division but can cross enter into the junior class.

  • Junior - $40/team
    Unlimited teams
    Junior teams are novice teams and considered to be beginning level competitors riding horses that may not have speed enough to be competitive in the open or the sport class. Both the rider and skier must be age 14 or under as of February 1st, 2019. Horse and skier may not cross enter into the 3D division, but can cross enter into the novice class.

Due to the huge turnout in previous years and in an effort to make sure that we don't run out of daylight, we are going to limit the number of teams in each division. Please register online to ensure that you have a spot for your team. All of the division have filled in previous years.

Online registration and payment: A "team" includes the entry fees for the skier, rider, and horse. We are not accepting individual competitor payments. 

Please note that horses can be entered in two teams and skiers can be entered in four teams. 3D Division horses and skiers may not cross enter into any other division. Cross-entry between the Novice and Junior divisions is permitted.
