rules and procedure

  • WHAT team will "host" four races this year and along with the Pole Mountain Shuffle there will be the five races in this series.

  • Times will be self reported and on the honor system. You can complete the courses and submit a completed as your time to get some series points.

  • Four of the five races will count toward racers series score.

  • Every race will be scored using the World Cup scoring system. Every racer will receive at least one point per race. Ties will be added together and divided among the tied skiers.

  • Courses will be published on Thursday before the race. Courses will be emailed to participants and posted on this website.

  • Courses will be groomed by the MBNA staff the morning before the race. Courses will be open at 10:00am.

  • Courses will be loosely marked. It will be the responsibility of the participant to know the course. We are not going to require any kind of GPS or tracking to participate. If your ego is so wrapped up in winning a series such as this that you purposely cheat, then WHAT team can help direct those people to the nearest out-house.

  • Course marking will consist of a start line, finish line and arrows at trail intersections.

  • All races will be freestyle but double points will be available for those who choose to do the classic race.

  • Because of the variable conditions of snow, races must be completed on the day of the race. If anyone wants to race the course on a different day they can do so for a half score of their placing time.

  • Racers assume all risk associated with cross country skiing. This includes but is not limited to course deterioration, changing snow and weather conditions, and other skiers on course.

  • There will not be any race representatives or first aid on site for these races.

  • Racers be required to follow all public health orders. Anyone found ignoring health orders or skiing while sick will be automatically disqualified from the entire series.

  • There are no race fees for this series! Donations are always greatly appreciated.
