The Alpine Leg starts at the top of Mt. Bachelor's Pine Marten chair lift with a mad dash uphill to put on your skis. The skier wearing his/her helmet (helmet required) will pass through the SG gates to the exchange point by West Village Lodge.
The course starts at the top of the Red Chair. There will be ski corrals for each start wave to place your skis. Please do not move other competitor's skis, it is a first-come, first-serve placement for skis. The race starts with a 200 foot sprint (length may vary due to snow conditions) uphill without your skis, then put them on and ski down the LeeWay trail. You must obey the control gates, gate keepers will be monitoring the course. If you miss a gate you must reenter or receive a time penalty. The course is a beginner/intermediate run. The course may change due to snow conditions. Mt. Bachelor Snow Phone: 541-382-7888.
Upon entering the Exchange Area, please check your speed and slow down before entering the chutes. Between the Red and Yellow chairs you will see five chutes. Each chute is labeled with a letter (A,B,C,D,E). The last digit of your Bib# corresponds to a specific chute: A: 0-1 B: 2-3 C: 4-5 D: 6-7 E: 8-9 This helps spread everyone out and helps you find your teammate and equipment easily. Please verify with your Cross Country skier what chute you have been assigned. Note: The same chute system will be used at the Cross Country/Bike and Run/Canoe Exchanges.
Snowboards and/or telemark skis will be allowed on the downhill leg in any of the categories.
