Whatever you wear up the hill is what you descend with... For example, if you snowshoe up you will snowshoe down... so you would be listed in the open class. There is one exception to this rule and that is if you would like to use a snowboard you may carry it on your back up the hill and then snowboard down and you will be listed in the Heavy Metal category. You can not leave anything stashed anywhere on the mountain! Whatever you go up with you must return with to the start line. If you use poles up the hill then you have to go down the hill with your poles. Helmets are highly recommended especially if you are skiing! Ski helmet or a bike helmet will work. It's for your safety!!
No sleds or blades will be allowed! Acceptable devices are: XC Skis, Randonee or Telemark Skis, snowboard, snowshoes, Micro-spikes or stabilizers... just plain running shoes.
