(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club (JHSC) today announced the start of alpine race training and four days of NorAm Slalom Series Races
on Snow King
Mountain. Race training for JHSC athletes and visiting teams begins today,
November 19 with the NorAm races kicking off on Tuesday November 24
After battling unseasonably warm temps this fall, JHSC and Snow King
Mountain have been working round the clock to prepare the Snow King slopes
for training and racing.
“This marks the earliest lift serviced skiing for JHSC athletes in the
valley in well over a decade.” said JHSC Alpine Program Director, Bridger
Call. In addition to JHSC athletes, teams from around the region will be
visiting Jackson to take advantage of the early season training opportunity.
Starting November 24 , JHSC and Snow King will
host a field of international, elite-level racers at the four-day *NorAm
Slalom Series* event.
Call states, “This is one level below World Cup racing and is the biggest
race series Jackson has hosted since 2004. We look forward to hosting an
event of this caliber.” The public is encouraged to come out to Snow King
Mountain to watch the world-class racing November 24
Today’s start to the 15/16 season marks a huge milestone for JHSC, Snow
King and the Jackson Hole community as it highlights the success of
Our Base* capital campaign which
raised funds to upgrade the snowmaking, lighting and terrain park
facilities on Snow King Mountain. Snow King is currently only open to the
JHSC athletes and visiting teams who have reserved space. It opens to the
public on December 5th.
“Thanks to everyone for supporting the JHSC as we have worked to make fall
skiing a reality!” said Call.
