Red Lodge Mountain Resort Town Series Race

What is the Town Series?

Town Series is six consecutive weeks of racing, with racers competing in teams or as individuals. Teams must be coed, and can consist of any mix of 4-6 skiers or snowboarders. Races take place on Bobcat (a beginner run), and the course layout, which changes each week, is typically a giant slalom course with 12-18 gates. It is always designed with the novice in mind, and is a very low-intimidation atmosphere with absolutely no racing experience required. All racers run the gates twice each Friday, and the day’s racing is capped off with a party and awards ceremony at 6 p.m.

When is the Town Series?

Town Series begins on Friday, January 12th this year and continues on every Friday through February 16th. All competitors must take both their runs between 10:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on race days.

How is the Racing Scored?

The goal is to have the fastest time through the course. The best of your two runs in the first week is the qualifier, after which you are placed into one of several categories based on gender, equipment (ski, snowboard, or telemark), and time. Racers compete against others within their category, but also compete as a team. Each week, the 4 racers on each team with the fastest times within their categories are awarded points, and these points are used to calculate the team’s points for that week.

Throughout the racing season we track the times of all skiers, snowboarders, and telemarkers within each category. These times form the cumulative points for each team, the cumulative time for each team, and for fun (not for points), are compared to the times of all racers. 

Are there Prizes?

You bet there are! Town Series has a loyal following of racers and sponsors, so we’re able to give out great prizes every week. And prizes don’t just go to the fastest racers - there are a variety of ways to walk away with something, including a random raffle of schwag each Friday night.
