Dodge Ridge Invitational
TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 2017
All area elementary and high schools were invited to attend this Dodge Ridge fundraiser and enjoy a day on the mountain with complimentary lift tickets and rentals for participants. Racers from each school competed 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) were able to compete in the Race. The top five racers from each school scored points for their school. Schools with a larger ski program, were able to include additional racers, but only the top five scores counted towards the overall team score. Each racer’s two fastest times were combined for the individual results.
Dodge Ridge also sold $12 BBQ Lunches with all proceeds going to benefit the winning school’s ski program. This year Curtis Creek took the invitational and received the $700 brought in from the BBQ for their schools ski program. We look forward to an even bigger event next season. Check this Events and Activities page in the Fall of 2017 for details on next season’s Invitational. Check the Race Results below from the Invitational Details link.
