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. Keep in mind the Summit Express chair takes 15 minutes and the courses are both at the bottom of the mountain. Riders should allow for 25 minutes to get from the bottom of the chair to the venue.
