Jay Peak Rando & Snow Leopard Challenge
Sponsored by Dynafit
The Jay Peak Rando is taking one large step forward this winter. USSMA has sanctioned our course as a Category II, which means the course needs to be approximately 4000 ft vertical, 5 - 10 transitions, 50% off-piste, and under three hours winning time. The 2014 course will have ~4000' vertical, six transitions, two boot packs, along with multiple bump and off-piste climbs/descents.
Jay Peak, along with Owl's Head Resort (just over the border) will make up a weekend of randonee racing. The Dynafit Snow Leopard Challenge is a two-day event at both resorts with the overall champion receiving a grand prize of $500 cash. A dollar from each entry fee will go towards The Snow Leopard Trust.
The Dyna-FIT: If you have a randonee setup, altimeter and the stamina of a cheetah, this is the division for you. You must compete in this division to be eligible for the grand prize.
NOTE: All participants/gear types welcome in this division.
Entry Fee: $40
The Bushwacker: This is for folks whose only interaction with randonee is an afternoon skin on their alpine setup. We'll have an abridged course with a warm (or cold) apres beverage waiting for you at the finish. This division allows randonee, snowshoes, running, or walking.
The Course: This will be a shortened version of the Dyna-FIT course. It will have one gradual climb and one long climb with steep sections, and will be very obtainable for a novice.
Entry Fee: $20
