Skier / Rider Format

All teams in the Open/Pro division, Snowboard Pro, and Sport Divisions will follow the double match format. Skiers/Boarders and riders must have a complete team created to enter open competition.  Skiers/ Boarders will ski behind the same horse and rider twice and take the best time each day to be used in the overall calculation.

All teams in the Novice and Novice Snowboard division will follow the Match/Draw  format. Skiers and riders must have a complete team to sign up for their "Match" run and will then be entered into a "Draw" for their second run. Competitors will not be allowed to have 2 (two) "Match" runs without a "Draw" run. 

Switcharoo Division: Rider and Skier/Boarder will switch positions from Saturday to Sunday but must use the same horse. Switcharoo will be single match format.

All teams in the Junior division will follow the match format. We will work to ensure that every interested Junior competitor gets a chance to compete.

**NEW THIS YEAR - Juniors time will be calculated to include obstacles and gates.
