Thursday ARL is a 7 week/8 person team
Ski league for intermediate to advanced
Skiers 18 and Over
Schedule and Times – Racing lasts 7 weeks starting January 5th with a “fun night, weather permitting. The first start time for each night is 7pm. Racing for the night on average is done by 8:15pm-8:30pm.
Running Order – Teams will be given a start time to complete their first and second runs. Start times are rotated throughout the season to give each team a chance to be first in the running order. A complete running order for the season will be available on the second night of racing.
League Scoring – Each racer scores points for their team (1-10) based on their total time for both runs. A racer must finish both runs to be able to score points for their team. Total team points are based off the top 4 racers with two participation points available for teams that have 6 or more racers complete both runs for the night.
Points are calculated using the Race the Gates handicapping system. Each racer receives a handicap based off of their times against the pacesetter factoring in age and gender. For more information on the NASTAR handicapping system visit:
Teams will be split into divisions (A,B, or C) after 3 weeks of racing based on their cumulative point totals. Division winners for the year are determined by total points with one throw out week.
Results, Awards and Prizes – Individual and team race results will be announced in the Snowshoe Bar after every night of racing. Enjoy beer and food specials with your team while results are calculated (generally takes 20-30 minutes after the last racer is finished).
Door prizes will be raffled off each night after the races. Racers must be present to win, so make sure to stick around after the race. Each team is responsible to contribute a door prize, (typically $50 value). Door prizes have included: gift certificates to restaurants or ski shops and crowd favorite.. cold hard cash!
Pricing and Signup – Racing costs $280 per team or $35 per person. That’s $5 a night per person plus an end of the year fun night. Teams can sign up anytime online or at Timber Ridge. Each racer must complete a registration form prior to racing. Please have Teams sign up at the Same Time.
