Update February 24, 2015
Attention all South Tahoe and North Tahoe members. We want to clarify the process for this weekend's final events of the South Tahoe Series. Please read entire message regarding Halfpipe and BX/SX.
On Saturday, February 28th the South Tahoe Series will host 2 halfpipe events at Northstar. These events will be run from one start list with both series competing together. All series will be judged together. There will be one award ceremony per event. Each competitor will get 2 runs per event, total of 4 runs for both events.
The day after the event concludes, the series directors will separate the overall rankings into each individual series 2 halfpipe results. These results will be then be uploaded as the official results for regional and national rankings. These will be the official results of both series halfpipe events.
On Sunday, March 1st South Tahoe Series will host BX/SX at Sierra at Tahoe. We welcome all members to this race. However, this event will be the normal process and not scored separately for North Tahoe Series athletes but they will receive National points.
We look forward to seeing you all this weekend at Northstar and Sierra at Tahoe. Please be prepared for all weather conditions. We are going to have a great weekend and a lot of fun....rain, snow or sun!!!
