About this event

The VBA Alpine Championship is a team based GS race. Open to Skiers and Snowboarders and teams can consist of 4 to 6 members.

No racing experience is necessary and open to intermediate to advanced skiers and riders.

Race Rules

To qualify for a team result, racers must form a team including: a) between four and six racers; b) no more than three racers who identify as men; and c) at least one racer over the age of 40. Racers do not need to be VBA members, but they must work in the legal profession. Each racer will have the opportunity to take two race runs, with the best time counting.

Each team’s ranking will be calculated based on: a) the best times of racers who do not identify as men; b) the best times of racers over age 40 (who cannot be the same as the racer(s) in category (a)); and c) the two other best times. There are also individual rankings and prizes for fastest times and top age category winners.

Price includes entry into the Race and Après/Awards tickets for participants. Please note you will need a valid lift ticket to enter the race as this is not included in the team entry. Can be added to order at a discounted price.

Après and Awards Banquet

Will be held in the Mount Currie Ballroom at the Hilton Hotel. From 3:30pm to 8pm.
