Race registration is now open for the 2013-2014 season! Complete information is available on the 
Season Schedule page. You can register online at SkiRaceReg.com or print and mail an entry form 
with checks directly to the race organizer. We encourage everyone to use the online race 
registration, it's easy and reliable, no worrying about whether your entry got delivered by 
mountain mail!


The December events at Mammoth on Dec. 7-8 (GS/GS/SL) and at Alpine Meadows on Dec. 21-22 (SL/SL) 
are available on SkiRaceReg.com for signup now; the remaining races on our season schedule will be 
added soon.

Our opening race weekend is at Mammoth, which is also hosting a masters training camp the week 
before the races, so celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends and then work off that turkey 
and start your season with some early December racing!

Online Race Registration

You will need to open or re-activate your account on SkiRaceReg before you can sign up for this 
season's races. If you already have an account, this is mainly to allow you to review and update 
your contact information, and also to provide current charge card information for charging race 
entry fees. Remember - there are no fees for opening your account on the system - charges are made 
only for race entry fees at the time a race is held. (You'll get a $0 charge message when your 
account activation is completed - that's just a confirmation that the system has successfully 
recorded your account information, you aren't being billed for anything yet!)

The entry deadline is published for all races and you can enter (or cancel without penalty) anytime 
up to the deadline, which is usually set to provide a one-day setback to allow the race organizers 
to pull entry lists and prepare the race operations computer systems for the event. Entries after 
the deadline or on the morning of a race at checkin are at the discretion of the organizing area; 
this is allowed when possible, but in some cases logistics do not permit, so please get entries in 
by the deadline.

Mammoth Season Opener

The 2014 race season opens at Mammoth with the Dave McCoy Classic on Dec. 7-8, with two GS races on 
Saturday and a SL race on Sunday. Mammoth will be hosting a training camp the week before the race 
on Mon-Fri Dec. 2-6, so if you're looking for a chance to get your ski legs ready to race this is a 
great chance to get in some skiing and gate training. Attend for the entire week or by the day as 
your schedule permits.

Mammoth Masters Camp
Mammoth will once again offer a masters training camp on Mon-Fri Dec. 2-6, following the 
Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This is a great way to kick off your season with some time on snow 
and gate training going into the season opening race weekend on Dec. 7-8.

Drills, gates, and video sessions will be provided, with coaches from the Mammoth masters and ski 
team. You can attend by the day or for the full week; see the camp information flyer for details or
