COACHES: Two coaches per school will be given complimentary ski passes on the day of the state meet, which will allow them to ski outside the designated spectator area. Any additional coaches wishing to ski “on the trails” outside this area will need to purchase a $10.00 trail pass.
PARKING: There will be a designated area on the east side of the parking lot for busses. Additional parking (parents, spectators, etc.) will be available on the south side of route 125 (across the road from Rikert) when the main lot fills.
FOOD: There is a snack bar with soups, hot & cold drinks, and a variety of granola bars, chips, jerky, candy, etc. It is recommended that competitors bring lunch, as the “stomach-filling” food selection is limited.
FACILITIES: There is an indoor men’s and women’s bathrooms located inside the lodge. There will also be porto-toilets available outside.
The “Big Barn” will be available for team use, e.g., warming up and eating, etc. There is limited space, so please keep the majority of your belongings on busses. Please do not crowd in the ski shop and only use that area for restrooms/changing and the snack bar. No racer gear/bags in the shop.
Electric power will be provided alongside the parking lot adjacent to bus parking.
SPECTATORS: Spectators and non-competitors will be allowed in designated spectator areas free of charge, and must be acutely aware of all racer traffic and respect volunteer “crossing guards”. However, any spectators or non-competing team members who wish to ski out on the course (outside of the designated area) must purchase a $10.00 trail pass.
