IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Racers can only compete in their age category, unless registered in a Pro category (for those ages 18 and older).
  • Production shovels only, no modifieds.
  • All racers must have a lift ticket or season/membership pass to access lift #2.
    • Lift tickets to access lift #2 will be sold at registration for $10.
  • Everyone will be required to sign a release. Releases will be available during registration. Minors will need a parent or guardian present to sign the release.
  • Angel Fire Resort will have a very limited number of shovels for use so it is recommended that all racers bring their own shovels. Helmets and eye protection are required, but will not be supplied by Angel Fire Resort. However, they can be rented or purchased at Slopeside Sports, the base area ski rental shop.
  • You must be wearing a bib to be on-course, with the exception of the Practice Run where a wristband is required.
  • The practice course is $5, but you must sign a release and show your wristband and wear a helmet and eye protection.

Racers must check in with the Start Official at least 15 minutes prior to their start time. All Racers (with the exception of Little Scoops) will be seeded randomly for their first run and seeded by time (slowest time first – fastest time last) for their second run. If a racer is not present for their age category time slot, they will not be allowed to race that run and will be given a DNS, Did Not Start.

RULES

  1. No physical alterations are allowed to the running surface of the grain scoops (shovels) other than the application of wax or similar type substance to the underside or bottom of the scoop. You may adhere tape or other similar materials to the handle of the shovel to make it easier to grip. You may paint the seat of the grain scoop but no traction aiding substance is allowed.
  2. Barging the start gate constitutes a false start. First false start in a heat is a warning, the second false start in a heat is a disqualification.
  3. If a racer is not in contact with their shovel upon crossing the finish line, that racer will receive a DNF (did not finish) for that run. Should a racer lose complete contact with their shovel during a run, they will receive a DNF for that run and will be required to immediately move laterally off the course.
  4. Protests can only be made by the competitor immediately following the completion of their run, before leaving finish area. Protests will only be accepted at the main scoreboard. All protests must include a $20 fee. This fee will be refunded to the competitor if the Judging and Inspection Committee deems the protest valid. If not, the money will not be refunded.

Finish Times: The time elapsed from the start to the finish will be electronically measured and recorded to .001 second when the competitor, sitting in/on the scoop of the shovel passes through the designated finish line.

Ties: The fastest two-run combined time will be the winner.
