Please fill out this form by Wednesday 1/20 @ 4pm if you are planning to race. 

I will excuse you from any classes you'll miss.  Wear your uniform to the race and DON'T FORGET YOUR BIB!!!

The race is at Baker National Golf Course (2935 Parkview Dr, Hamel, MN 55340). Get to Baker by 1:15pm, races start at 2pm. 

You can't set up inside and need to remain outside unless using the bathroom. Wear a mask at all times while not racing. 

**NEW COVID MASK RULE: For races, MSHSL will allow skiers to race without a mask. Skiers still need to line up at the start with a mask on, then can pull it down once the race starts. Skiers need to put a mask back on right after finishing. A Buff or neck gaiter works really well for this. 

  • Varsity has option of practicing at Theo Wirth at 3:30pm. Coach G will have wax to put on your skis after practice. If you can't make it to Wirth, Coach Voss will have wax too at French Park. 
  • JV1 will be at French Park at 5:15pm-6:30pm. Coach Voss will have wax. 
  • Let the wax dry overnight and we'll brush out skis tomorrow at the race before you warm up. 
ThursdayPlease arrive at Baker at 1:15pm. See coaches to brush out your skis, find out your wave assignment and warmup for 20-30 minutes. Race starts at 2pm and you'll be in mass wave starts. Please be at the start area at 1:50. 

There will be 2 boys waves and 2 girls waves for each varsity and JV1 race. Each with up to 7 skiers from each school. The course will be the same as last years conference race and will be marked. A map with the course highlighted in green is below. (Not the Evergreen Trail). You can use the Island trail as a cool down loop.
