Standings

The course is marked and most of it has two-way traffic, so we ask participants to keep to the right side whenever not alone on the course.

PVST is a 501c3 non-profit and funds raised go to the youth ski team to help with summer camp expenses.

Self-Timing

Timing will be managed by each racer’s smart phone with Webscorer Race Timer app scanning QR codes at start, finish, and  points along the course.

The QR codes are marked visibly and scanning can be done without internet connection; if a racer’s phone has connection, all times upload automatically. 

The course will be open from 8 AM - 4 PM.

COVID-19 accommodations

For safety reasons, there will be no mass start and racers can choose their own start time during the day.

No race swag or awards will be handed out. Social distancing and masks where necessary are required on Plain Valley Ski Trails
