Where I can put my gear during race time?
During the race there will be a designated drop, on the snow, just outside of the restaurant doors. It is a covered space and available throughout the competition. No gear is to be left in Bumps.
What happens if I miss my start time?
Unfortunately, there are no exceptions for any missed start times. With numerous competitors it is imperative you be at the start gate on-time ready to compete.
