Racing 2021-2022 season

CSC Racing

Yes, we will have a Monday night race league this year. Mount Southington will be open. And it probably will be similar to last year. We are not exactly sure what this new look will be – but the current outline follows: We will again use AdminSports for racer registration and lift tickets. NO exception, registration through them.

  •   STEP 1: The yearly registration season waivers will be through AdminSports. The yearly waiver will be required BEFORE you register for any individual races. We will not do the pizza nights – people who registered early but did not race made it difficult for me to keep track of racers vs non-racers, so everything will be on-line.
  •   STEP 2: Lift ticket/race sign-up – done every week on-line– will be from Friday up to midnight on Sunday before the weekly race. This is required for racer registration each week prior to the race. No racer will be allowed to show up the day of a race and race without the weekly pre-registration.
  •   If you have registered for a race, come down to Southington and get your bib the first time you race.
  •   Men born in 1957 and prior, all women, and all snowboarders will have Bibs 1-199.
  •   Men born 1958 and after (under 64) will have Bibs 200-399.
  •   Bibs will be handed out on a first come, first served basis – but since we have the lottery for bib race order each

    night, there is no advantage to getting there early.

    BIBS: We will do as we did last year, and hand out CSC bibs for the year. Racers will be responsible to bring their bib each week. Each week will be the same sequence bib order, but the first racer number will vary. Racers MUST turn in their bibs at the end of the season on the last race night, or they or their club will be penalized.

    TICKETS: On-line ticket sales will eliminate money/credit card interaction. Ticket/racing prices are: $32 per ticket/race, or $20 for race with a season pass (this DOES NOT include the fee for AdminSports). Tickets will be handed out by Mount Southington on this side of the gate (under an outside canopy?) – so there should be no issues entering the area with skis. To purchase a lift ticket prior to the race day, an on-line waiver will need to be electronically signed. This waiver (attestation form) will require racers to say they have complied with CT Covid-19 guidelines. The CSC will be VERY strict with conforming to the Covid guidelines – we want to keep everybody safe!

    LODGE: The plan is to have the lodge open to racers to put their boots on; however (current plan), no bags will be allowed in the building. The mountain will follow CT Covid guidelines, so the mandate will depend on what the mandates are at that time.

    OTHER RACES:

    There will be no State Slalom, nor Giant Slalom, nor Cross Country races.
    Also, the CT Senior Winter Games (typically at Ski Sundown) have been cancelled for this year.
    The OnSnow Carnival (no location determined yet) might be reduced to a one-day event. We will update as soon as we have the proper information.

    Please stay safe out there….

SnowBall Information – Rescheduled for November 12, 2022

We are sad to announce that we have made the difficult decision to once again postpone the SnowBall for another year. This is not something that came lightly, or without a lot of thought. The first piece came after a conversation with my contact with our band, Rum Runners. After playing the Milford Oyster Festival and another large outdoor event this summer, several members of the band came down with COVID, including some who where fully vaccinated. They are currently very leery of playing such a large indoor event such as ours. The vulnerability demonstrated at these outdoor events highlights the continued concern surrounding large gatherings. The second part of the decision came about after polling the presidents of our ski cubs. Several said straight out that it was unlikely any of their members would attend, and most of the rest quoted greatly reduced numbers. The question was raised if we could mandate proof of vaccination, but after checking with the governor’s office, we are not allowed to make such demands. We can only follow CDC and local guidelines. Without a large number of attendees, we would be unlikely to even cover the cost of the SnowBall, never mind raise any money for the CSC.

On a much more positive note, our efforts are going to shift to arranging a large outdoor picnic for late spring/early summer of 2022. This would most likely take place at Falcon Field in New Britain, and would allow everyone to get out and socialize, enjoy some good food and music, and yes, dance! (There is a large pavilion we can use.) Details are just starting to be worked out, so stay tuned!
