Parents & spectators: Please refrain from skiing on the race course during the race and only cross at designated areas. First and foremost, this is for the safety of the skiers and it will maintain the best course possible throughout the race. Many of you think you’re not in the way when you’re on the course – and you’re not – until you are. Please be courteous spectators; and if you are directed by a volunteer during the race please treat them with respect and listen to their directions. They are all part of the group trying to put on a top notch race for your athletes.
