Boardercross Skiercross Reschedule

We've done everything that we could do to pull off SBX / SX at Ski Cooper but mother nature just did not cooperate with us, so we're moving the new Prinoth cat down to Copper Mountain, where we will be building an SBX / SX course on Fairplay.

Our hats off to Robb Monnaville & Copper Mountain for accommodating our request and supporting the Rocky Mountain Series by agreeing to build us a track. Without their support, there would have been no boardercross or skiercross racing in the RMS this season.

The surrounding USASA series have been also severely impacted by the lack of snow in Colorado, we'll probably have pretty big fields with a lot of visiting competitors and the events will more than likely fill up quickly.

Unfortunately, we will not have any training days before the 3 races at Copper Mountain. SIA On-Snow is immediately following our events, we could not secure any additional hill space.

We still will have training days prior to the USASA National Championships on March 26th thru the 28th. These also may fill up a bit quicker than normal given the lack of SBX / SX opportunities across the nation.

We've refunded entry fees to those who have registered online for the following events:

  • Training Day 1 @ Ski Cooper - Friday, January 26th, 2018
  • Training Day 2 @ Ski Cooper - Friday, February 2nd, 2018
  • Race Day 3 @ Ski Cooper - Saturday, February 3rd, 2018
  • Race Day 4 @ Ski Cooper - Sunday, February 4th, 2018

Those who registered online for the first two races at Ski Cooper have not been refunded and are still registered for the new events at Copper Mountain. If you had registered for the Friday, January 26th training day you were refunded and are REQUIRED to register online for Race Day 1:

  • Race Day 1 - Now at Copper Mountain - Friday, January 26th, 2018
  • Race Day 2 - Now at Copper Mountain - Saturday, January 27th, 2018
  • Race Day 3 - Now at Copper Mountain - Saturday, January 28th, 2018
