Thanks for Another Great NJRS Season!
A huge thank you goes out to Lutsen for hosting a really fun Championship race on March 1 to end our racing season! Results are accessible by clicking here. And congratulations go out to Mount Ski Gull for winning the team competition this year!
We had a great time at each and every ski race, and we'd like to thank all the parents and coaches who work so hard behind the scenes to make our races fun for all of the athletes. Be sure to check back in late fall for the 2016 NJRS schedule and updates for the next ski season. Enjoy SPRING skiing and we'll ski you next year!
Local Weather Information
Local weather for the next race will be posted here during the race season. In cases of bitterly cold weather or other weather-related events, we will post alerts no later than 12:00 pm Saturday and announce any final race day changes or cancellations here and on facebook by 4:00 pm Saturday. The final decision will be made by the host ski hill/club and NJRS coordinators.FAQ section for details on how to participate in NJRS races.) Participating NJRS clubs:
Each race consists of two race runs, usually Giant Slalom. Slalom was added in 2009 at select races for racers ages 8 and up. Kids under 8 years old will still race Giant Slalom only. Times for each run are added together to determine the racers' standings within their age groups. There are both boys and girls groups for the following ages: (5 & Under) (6-7) (8-9) (10-11) (12-13) (14-15) (16+). Awards will be given to the top finishers in each group.
