What a difference a few weeks can make! Going into Thanksgiving everywhere was brown in the Sierra, 
with limited man-made snow at those areas able to open. But December rolled in with a lovely series 
of storms that transformed conditions and set up all our Sierra resorts with great conditions going 
into the upcoming holidays. 

Our first Far West Masters races of the 2018-2019 season will be held next week at Mammoth, with 
the postponed Dec. 1-2 races added onto the originally scheduled Fri-Sat races. We will now be 
racing GS on Friday 12/21 (as originally scheduled), two SL races on Saturday 12/22, and an 
additional GS race on Sunday (postponed race makeup). Mammoth Race Department will be providing a 
two-day training camp on Wed and Thu Dec 19-20, so come early if you can and get in a couple solid 
days of training before the races. 

Mammoth Mountain is now in full operation and the conditions are very good. Weather outlook for 
next week is also encouraging - after a moderate storm on Sunday/Monday, forecasts call for 
clearing and warm through the rest of the week, so we should have very good conditions to kick off 
the race season!! 

We realize the timing of the opening event will conflict with holiday plans for some, but after our 
delayed start of the season we wanted to take advantage of Mammoth's offer to host the additional 
races so that we have racing to offer those who can attend. If you can't make it, happy holidays to 
all and we look forward to gathering in early January at Heavenly and Squaw for our next event. 

Reminder: the early registration deadline is Sunday 12/16, so get your race signups in 
skiracereg.com/fw. Registration closes 8pm Wednesday 12/19; late entries and cancellations after 
the close of online registration are at the discretion of Mammoth Race Dept.
