The 2016-2017 race season kicked off last weekend at Mammoth Mountain with two good days of SL 
racing. Following a nice 2-3 ft dump at the end of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, ski conditions 
and weather were good all week for a preseason training camp put on by the Mammoth coaching staff. 
Although the new snow resulted in soft conditions for training, the snow packed in a little better 
each day and by the weekend was firm enough to provide an adequate racing surface. 

The enthusiastic field of 70+ competitors included a number of new racers along with a solid group 
of visitors from Intermountain and Central divisions. It was great to have so many new folks trying 
masters racing - we hope everyone had fun and comes back for more! 

Complete results are posted on the Race Results page along with the first Season Standings rankings 
for 2017. 


Race photos were shot both days by experienced race photog Sue Morning and are available from 
Sharpshooter Imaging on the web at www.myskiphotos.com - select Mammoth as the resort and enter the 
race date 12/3/2015 or 12/4/2016 in the "Action Photos" search field to locate our race photos for
