2018 Bob Whipple Classic
February 24, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Bob Whipple was a pillar of the skiing community at Holiday Mountain and was a true ambassador of the sport. Bob’s generosity is the stuff of local legend and his passion to help people enjoy the sport he loved is unmatched.
Today, the Holiday Mountain Ski Club (HMSC) carries on that tradition of passing along the love of skiing to as many local kids each year as possible. This yearly fundraiser helps HMSC to keep the membership for athletes as low as possible and allows the Club to continually update needed safety equipment, as well as support our Travel Athletes in the highest levels of competition in New York State.
This year we will continue with a Dual SL Match Race format. Each racer will make a timed race run on each of two courses, with combined time of both runs being the racers total time. After all racers have completed their timed runs they may make unlimited runs on the courses for the remainder of the afternoon.
