The Great Race
Save the Date: March 16, 2024
STRIDE’s Great Race, an entry level Adaptive Snowsport Race, is a competitive event for ski and snowboard racers with disabilities from around the Northeast. An inspiring day of individual victories and monumental successes realized on the race course at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort in Hancock, MA, the event is open to all adaptive skiers of any age, skill level, or disability.
The race is designed to introduce adaptive skiers to the thrill of racing in a safe and essentially low-competitive format. Each racer is timed in two runs through a giant slalom course set on intermediate to beginner terrain, and special awards are given to the top three finishers in each category. There are two start platforms for intermediate to beginner skiers. Divisions are open to Visually Impaired, Blind, 2-Track (2 skis, standing up), 3-Track (2 outriggers and 1 ski), 4-Track (2 outriggers and 2 skis), Bi-ski, Mono Skiers (sit down) and Snowboarders with special needs, and the electronically timed course is set-up to accommodate different skill levels. Many of our students train all season on STRIDE’s Race Team to reach the starting gate on race day.
Racer entrance fee is $75 which includes ski pass, coaches, rental and adaptive equipment, two runs on the race-course, outdoor barbecue lunch, music, and a medal awards ceremony. Medals for Every racer!!
