USSA Masters Eastern Region Championships

 

Okemo, VT Feb. 8-10, 2013

The always-popular Okemo Mountain will host the 2013 Eastern Masters Championships for 2013. The series will kick-off with a pair of SGs on Feb. 8 on the Chief Racing Trail, which will be included in the national, season-long, Molecule F Speed Series standings. The SGs will be followed by the slalom and giant slalom on Feb. 9, 10. The Chief, site of the SGs and GS, has been a longtime favorite of the masters due to its length, rolling terrain, and “masters friendly sets.” The slalom on War Dance will feature separate courses for the A/B and C/D groups.

Okemo has been the host of the Eastern Championships on multiple occasions, and always attracts the best racers from around the East and Canada. The traditional awards parties will follow the races on Friday and Saturday, and the events will count in the overall Sise Cup standings.
