The 2021 race season will be a little different as a result of the Covid-19 precautions that Bogus Basin is taking. We will update this website to reflect as much information as we have available. Until then, here is a snapshot of what we know.
This season, each school will only have two regular races plus the Dotty Clark, and racers are limited to competing in one event. The goal is to limit the number of racers to 400 per Saturday. To take advantage of the high-speed quad for moving people out of the lift lines, the races have been moved to the front side of the mountain (rather than on Bitterroot Basin / Chair #5). To accommodate the location change, the race time also changed to 3:30 pm.
We will have parent/racer Webex meetings on November 11 and November 12 at 6:30 pm to discuss all of these changes. The same information will be discussed at both meetings. Send us an email and we will send you the Webex link. For your convenience, we also posted the links on this website on the Announcement page and on the Calendar page.
For more information about the program, you can also visit the Bogus Basin School Race Program website.

Some clubs call themselves the Snow Team or the Ski & Snowboard Team. We chose to keep it simple and traditional because Star Middle School Ski & Snowboard Team (STMSSST) seemed too long....
