U.S. Skiing FIS Ski-Cross Races
Overview
SUGAR BOWL HOSTS TWO FIS NOR-AM SKI-CROSS COMPETITIONS FEBRUARY 1-3, 2010

(Donner Summit, CA) – Sugar Bowl Resort announced today that it will host two sanctioned U.S. Skiing FIS Nor-Am Cup ski-cross competitions February 1-3, 2010. Top-level ski-cross competitors from around the world will descend upon Sugar Bowl to race the new ski-cross course on the Tunnel 41 trail, located off the Mt. Judah Express quad chair. A relatively new discipline to sanctioned ski competitions, Sugar Bowl ambassador and ski-cross competitor Daron Rahlves explained that “ski-cross is four man heats racing head to head on a motocross inspired layout, debuting for the first time in the Winter Olympics this February. I'll compete in the FIS events and then train with the US Ski-Cross Team at Sugar Bowl leading up to the Vancouver Games”. The two Sugar Bowl ski-cross competitions follow other Nor-Am Cup competitions being held in Sun Valley, Idaho and Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, New York. Following the two FIS Nor-Am Cup ski-cross races, the US Ski-Cross Team will train at Sugar Bowl February 13-17, 2010. The ski-cross course will then be detuned and opened for public skiing and riding.
