Competition Schedule

Athlete Check-in: 

Athlete Check-In for events at Olympic Valley will be downstairs at Olympic House (across from Wildflour), in the case of venues used at Alpine Meadows, event HQ will be in the Main Lodge, on the South wall (near the fireplace). The presumption is we use AM for our 2* regional event, and the OV side for this 3* National, but final decisions will be made and broadcast the week of event, to ensure we have a great venue available from all 6,000 acres.

The aim for this Junior National competition is to use the Olympic Valley side, but well choose the best venues conditions allow, from the full offering of 6,000 acres across both mountains (Olympic Valley and Alpine Meadows). Commuters driving in from outside the valley should be aware of congested traffic to and from the mountain; please allow extra time for weekend travel.
