Dash for Cash
Join us on Saturday, March 19th at 4pm for the 2016 edition of the Dash for Cash sprints presented by the Outdoor Gear Exchange.
The top sprinters in the U.S. will be vying for a $500 cash purse in 4-person elimination heats (top two advance). The short, 30-second course will test both speed and ski handling. Winners advance through four rounds of furious action, with each men's and women's winner taking home $150 cash ($75 for second, $25 for third).
Sign up is available here. No cost to enter. Registration closes at 5pm on Friday, March 18th. No late registration (we need to make the brackets that night).
Brackets will be based on number of registrants. Heats will consist of four skiers and the top two skiers out of each heat advance (old school sprint bracket style). Any more than 32 registrants per gender will require byes and paired single elimination heats to fill out the bracket. Skiers will be seeded based on sprint ability, at the discretion of race officials (we'll do our best to make things fair). Ties are decided by a coin toss.
The course is yet-to-be-determined, but it will be approximately 30 seconds in length and will include some unique features to test skiers handling abilities. We want to reward the best skier, not just the fastest skier.
