WinterKids 9th Annual Downhill24

FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2021

WHAT’S NEW FOR 2021

The event will not have the over-night component as in years past (don’t worry, we’ll be back for 24-hours in 2022 for the 10 year anniversary) but we plan on making the day as much fun – IF NOT MORE – so please join us in the festivities.

Additionally, awards will be presented VIRTUALLY on Saturday, March 6 (exact timing and details are TBD). We will be providing safety regulations for registration and awards pick-up. We will share more details as we get closer to the event.

REGISTRATION OPEN SOON! Make sure you’re a member of our D24 Facebook Group to be among the first to know when it is.

TIME OF EVENT:

Friday, March 5, 2020: First chair (approximately 8:30am) to Last Chair (approximately 3:40pm)

WinterKids Downhill 24 March 2020 SDP 5171

KING OF THE MOUNTAIN AND KID’S CUP

We’ll still be tallying points for bragging rights to the King of the Mountain or Kid’s Cup titles – we are still finalizing what these points will include, what we do know is that FUNDRAISING will have the most weight and TIME ON MOUNTAIN won’t be counted this year.
