This event is well known as one of the events riders get the most runs at. It’s a one of kind day at Mt.Tabor as a skater by being shuttled to the top upwards of a dozen runs. Normally you’d have to hike and after a half dozen runs, most riders are spent. Plus to have the whole hill completely free of all peds, bikes, and cars with the confidence you can go full speed with no worries. Then adding to the fun doing race heats with riders of your skill level and age group. If you plan on racing, don’t worry about being eliminated and not skating as much. All riders get to go back to the top on every run except the finals. So everyone gets a chance to do the hill all day long. Previous years riders do practice runs all morning until lunch break. Pre-registered riders get to choose their sandwich online and everyone takes a break to eat. After lunch racing begins and runs are had for the rest of the afternoon. Age classes are separated for racing with Grom class (15 and below), Womens, Masters (40 plus), and Open Class that everyone can race in.
