    It was an adventure, Nastar and Squaw adapted very well and pulled it off. Squaws race team/workers/organization went above and beyond.

    How did it work out with racers moving down? Was there a problem or did everything work out ok?

    It seemed to work out fine. There may have been the isolated incidence of someone competing below where he/she should have but it didn't seem to be an issue. One indicator of that is the breakout rule. it's hard to believe but not a single racer got bumped up this year.

    Good to hear there were no issues - no breakouts - Maybe a testament to moving the lower division racers onto the lower (and more difficult) Red Dog run?

    There were only 7 racers(of 42 bumped down) from last year that were registered to race this year, that bumped down 2 or more I haven't gone through the results to tally where any placed. Conditions were challenging, so not surprising no one broke out/up

    The courses were definitely challenging. I checked the results off all Platinum Racers over the age of 45 on Saturday and the average handicap was 39.97!!!! Clearly, the former World Cup racers were used to courses like this but the rest of us, not so much..... I need to practice on more difficult courses.

    I hope Nastar considers keeping everything at the bottom, as they had to do Saturday. Putting Platinum over on Red Dog with Gold only marginally lengthened the time to complete racing. I didn't race very well, but it was a fun challenge and hope Nastar keeps the same courses. I know the parents that don't ski enjoyed being able to watch their children race
