The event is limited to 100 competitors. The top finishers from Friday will qualify for Saturday’s final. Scores from both days will be calculated to determine the overall winners. Competitors must properly wear their bib, helmet and back protector in order to compete. We will run in start order as best we can within age/gender categories, late arrivals will be sent so long as we have not moved on to another age/gender. On finals day (Saturday, March 9th) we will run in reverse order based on finishes from Friday. Bibs will be collected in the finish area both days. Start lists, venue maps and results will all be made available via Stack Team App and LiveHeats in a timely manner. Pre-purchased competitor & spectator tickets will be distributed at check-in/bib pick-up on Friday. Spectators who did not pre-purchase through the Driven registration process should visit our online store and buy in advance. Please do not wait until the end of the week to purchase. Competitors (and their support crew) who make the cut to Saturday’s finals will be given vouchers at check-in/bib pick-up to purchase tickets on Saturday. There will be no early distribution of tickets or bibs. Ticket vouchers will need to be redeemed for active tickets at the ticket booth on Saturday before loading the chairlift. The ticket booth opens at 8:00 am on weekends and 8:30 mid-week. Please note that the event timeline allows for extra time on Saturday morning to facilitate ticketing. Venue access is only permitted for event staff, patrol, authorized photographers, competitors who are properly displaying their bibs and IFSA-certified coaches. All other venue access needs to be cleared first with the Technical Director.
