Course Notes, Inspection and Course
Course will be open Saturday until 8:50 AM (ten minutes before race start) for warm up and
inspection. There will be no backwards skiing on the course. Saturday’s sprint course will be
closed during qualifiers and heats. Sunday’s distance course will be open all day. Please make
room for racing athletes and be aware of your surroundings when/if warming up on course. The 5K course will be a single lap course with cut offs for U14 and under races.

Wax Protocol
We will follow the RMN wax protocol for glide wax. This means all skiers must use the same
glide wax for the races. Final decision will be communicated at 2PM Wednesday, December
13th. The glide wax call will be one of the following: HF8, LF6, or Toko Blue. All waxes can be
found at Boulder Nordic, Breckenridge Nordic Center or Frisco Nordic Center (please contact
them directly).

Seeding
Saturday’s seeding for the sprint qualifier will be on USSA points for U16-U20 women and
U16-20 men. All other seeding will be based on RMN points.
Sunday’s seeding for the interval start will be based on USSA points for U16-U20 both men and
women. U14 and younger will be seeded by the previous day’s results.

Miscellaneous
● Team vans will have reserved parking in the lots adjacent to the waxing area (we will give
maps out at the coach’s meeting)
● Bathrooms will be available in the Nordic Center and near the start – please make sure
you instruct your athletes to be tidy
All wax tents must have 40lb weights on each corner. We will be inspected by the fire
marshal.

Sponsors
This race would not be possible without the support of our community partners. The Town of
Frisco has been an extremely important partner in providing an excellent venue, course and
support.
