“The best day of youth ski racing in Alaska!”

The 2012 ConocoPhillips Interior Youth Championships presented by Stoltz Dental Group return to Birch Hill this Saturday, March 31.  The event is a day-long festival of youth ski racing which has become a spring highlight for young skiers of all abilities.

Skiers can choose to participate in one, two or three events, and all participants are invited to the pizza party/awards ceremony directly following the freestyle ski cross event at the end of the day.  The day-long event offers a great opportunity to do something healthy, experience kid-oriented ski racing at its finest and for the skiers to build camaraderie with other young skiers.

Each of the three events is specifically aimed at youth skiers.  The Youth Champs begin at 10 AM with a traditional event, the classic interval start race…  Only there’s a twist from your standard race of this format as the trail as the rolling terrain will occasionally dart through the woods on narrow single track trails or take a sharp turn to challenge a skiers skills too.  Courses are 1km for J5 and J6 racers (those born in 2002 and after), 2.5 km for J3 and J4 racers (YOB: 1998-2001), and 5 km for J2 racers (YOB: 1996-7).

After a short break, the day continues with the high speed excitement of the 100 meter classic sprint at noon.  In this event, skiers race down the finishing stretch at Birch Hill in 8-person heats.  Larger age groups will feature semi-finals and finals.

After a break for lunch, the racing concludes with the freestyle ski-cross event at 3 PM.  Skiers again start in head-to-head heats on a mostly downhill course of about 500 meters featuring tight turns, bumps and jumps and various other terrain features, in a true test of balance and agility on skis!  For many skiers this is the highlight of the day, and they’ll come out and start practicing their jumps an hour ahead of time.

As soon as the ski-cross event ends, skiers will head inside for pizza, the awards ceremony and a prize raffle which is open to all contestants.

Registration forms are available at Birch Hill, Goldstream Sports, Beaver Sports, Raven XC and on the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks website.  Early registration is $5 for one event and $10 for 2 or 3 events and is due at one of the sports stores by 6 PM on Thursday March 29.  Day of race registration is $10 for one race or $20 for 2 or 3 races and closes 30 minutes prior to the start of the morning race and one hour prior to the start of the afternoon races.  Early registration is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated!
