QUAD Alternate Ski Date
Despite all the snow we get in northeast PA, conditions may affect the ski race. If the race is not able to be held on January 19, 2019 an alternate date of Saturday, February 9th has been scheduled. This alternate date is for the entire ski race and not available for individuals to makeup the ski if the race goes off on the original date scheduled and they miss it. It is NOT possible to do this because of the logistics in setting up the course and timing system and exact same weather conditions cannot be guaranteed on multiple days.
