    Course Description

    Dual Slalom: The Dual Slalom will be on the -07 and -08 Collegiate National Championship track. The Dual Slalom is one of the best courses in the south east, starting with tight berms and small jumps, with progressively bigger ones towards the bottom. Fast race times down the track are just under 30 seconds.

    Downhill: The first downhill race will be on the Triple Crown DH Finals track, taking the high speed quad to the top of the mountain. Fast race times last year were around the 2:25 mark. The downhill course has had work done on it to improve flow.
