The event will feature 3 days of racing: two SG races on Friday 2/7, two FIS-masters-style 1-run GS races on Saturday 2/8, and a (2-run) SL race on Sunday 2/9. Both Friday SG races also count in the 2020 National Speed Series.
Northstar has an excellent race crew and has been putting on good events for Far West Masters, so we are looking forward to a high quality event that will draw masters competitors from around the western US as well as international athletes.
