MRG Racing Triple Crown – Family Tournament
Jan 15 @ 11:00 am

The Family Tournament originated as the Father-Son race and dates back to 1942 when it was originally held on the flanks of Mount Mansfield (Stowe). In its modern form, it is a race open to anyone who wants to participate. Racers complete a family-friendly GS course where a racer’s best time from two runs (attempts) is counted. The time is then added together with other family members (by blood relationship) in the following categories and prizes awarded. In some cases, there are coveted trophies that live permanently at MRG for all to admire. The Family Tournament is the first leg of the MRG Racing Triple Crown.

Categories:

  • Father-Son
  • Mother-Daughter
  • Mother-Son
  • Father-Daughter

  3. Fluidity: Constant direction towards a goal. This includes continuity, pace, and smooth transitions between sections of the course. Falling or stopping can have a negative impact in this category
  4. Technique: Competitors are judged on style and turn quality relating to big mountain freeriding.

MRG Racing Triple Crown – Kandahar Mountain Race
Feb 11 @ 7:30 am – 10:00 am

 

A race of a bygone era, the Kandahar channels the spirit of full mountain races that were once commonplace on the racing circuit and at MRG. The last version held in the 1980s began on Creamery, descended onto Moody’s, before taking on (Grand) Canyon. At the bottom of Canyon, racers went straight across Easy Way, over the cliff on One Way, and over S-Turn Cliff onto Lower Periwinkle and finished by the base of the Double. Whew! Our modern version is a bit more modest but will still reward those who can ski gates as well as terrain on the trail. The trail combination and exact set to get from the start to the finish are dependent on snow depth and conditions. Please see the race flyer (when available) for additional course details.

Field Limit: 75 racers

Age requirement: 10 years old or older as of January 1st, 2023
