Dodge Ridge Invitational
(TO BE RESCHEDULED THIS SEASON)
All elementary and high schools in the area are invited to enjoy a day of racing and activities at Dodge Ridge with complimentary lift tickets and rentals for participants. Dodge Ridge will also selling BBQ Lunches with all proceeds going to benefit the winning school’s ski program.
Racers from each school will compete in a best two out of three runs format. Up to five girls and five boys from each school and each discipline (ski and snowboard) will be able to compete in the Race. The top five racers from each school will score points for their school. If your school has a larger ski program, we will be able to accommodate additional racers, but only the top five scores will count towards the overall team score. Each racer’s two fastest times will be combined for the individual results.
In 2017 Curtis Creek took the invitational and received $700 brought in from the BBQ for their schools ski program. We look forward to an even bigger event during this season.
