Feb 15 & 16 Doubleheader! - Ski Bowl Boardercross/Skiercross #1Makeup & #3 - North Creek Ski Bowl
The Adirondack Snowboard & Freeski Series was resanctioned beginning with the 2006-2007 season thanks to the cooperation of our founding partners:
NYSEF(New York Ski Education Foundation), National Sports Academy, ORDA(Olympic Regional Development Authority), Whiteface and Titus Mountains, and North Country Community College. We are proud to work with our current host resorts; Whiteface, North Creek Ski Bowl/Gore, and Titus Mountains.
Please read your rulebook (available online at www.usasa.org), especially the disqualification and protest rules before you compete. Helmets are required at all times as are properly worn bibs for both training and competition. The following events are for both skiers and snowboarders. Please note that on the regional schedule the designation for cross is "Boardercross" though Skiercross is contested as well.
SS - Slopestyle - Competitors are scored by a panel of judges on a course consisitng of jumps and rails. The best of two runs counts for their final score.
RJ - Railjam - A judged event based on open "jam" format. Age groups are 10 & under, 11 -13, 14 & over, and Open for both ski & snowboard, male & female.
BX/SX - Boardercross/SkierCross - Each athlete gets one timed run to establish seeding for the race followed by racing in heats of up to four. Top seeded athletes in each age division get to pick their lane in the starting gate. If there are more than four athletes in an age group the top two finshers advance to the next round and the bottom two drop out. This process continues until the final heat which determines final placing.
Empire State Winter Games - SX, BX, & SS - The Empire State Games will be held on February 7th (Cross) & February 8th (Slopestyle). This will be an ADK Series points event. Registration info below.
