Racing Reminders

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick reminder to all racers, please finalize/renew your USSA memberships as soon as possible. When registering don’t forget that Catamount is a Massachusetts State Mountain and to register each of your Racers as ALPINE COMPETITOR and NOT alpine general. A general membership will not allow your racer to compete in events. The tristate dues included in this membership refer to our region, Tristate Region, and are required for competitor membership

Also, to any racer parents with Rad Jackets that are no longer being used. We have a lot of new parents this season who are interested in them for their racers. If you have any gently used red jackets, race suits, or other equipment you’d like to unload, please post on our facebook group page or email catamountracing@gmail.com . Please include item photo sizing details and $ amount requesting. We can get it posted for our parents who are seeking such items.

Patagonia: orders due Monday, try on items in lodge tomorrow during lunch

Quick reminder that our final Patagonia order of the season is closing Monday – details below. We will have a few sample items in the Taconic from 11-1 tomorrow to try on for sizing.

Details:

  • These items do not replace the red and black team jackets. We created this program for access to affordable, high-quality layering pieces to go under those jackets.
  • Patagonia was chosen because the pieces are high quality enough to be handed down many times, and they offer compelling discounts to make their gear available to teams.
  • Our team items include Capilene base layers, fleece (1/4 zip, full zip, and vests) and nanopuffs. All items will be embroidered or screenprinted with the blue Catamount logo (part of our agreement with Patagonia) – we cannot offer the items without a team logo.
  • Items are ~30% less than retail cost (including nifty Catamount Alpine Racing embroidered logos and screenprinting).
  • The deadline for this order is 1/6 and items will be delivered by the end of January.
  • You will see limited availability as many fall/winter items are backordered at this point (Patagonia reserves a set number of each item to be sold at team discount prices each season and once those are gone, they’re gone) – incentive to make sure you get in on the September round next year!
  • Items should only be ordered for racers and coaches.

You can access the item details and order form here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zp_6aEgLehIJ-DOHEKFO3nErU9qCe86HEkxkSMuhJ04/edit?usp=sharing.

Please read through the “READ THIS FIRST” sheet first and, after you have read that sheet twice, feel free to reach out to jamie.f.cheney@gmail.com with any questions.

Picking up Your Season Pass

New racers: Picking up your pass for the first time can be done at the New ticket booth attached to Catamount Lodge or with any cashier, with the exception of the Lesson desk inside the Berkshire lodge. Each racer will need to have a 2019/2020 Program Release form signed and submitted to pick up their seasons pass.


Returning racers: If your passes are paid for, the racing release form below has been signed/ submitted for your racer/racers, and if you have your RFID card from last season, your pass is already active and will work automatically no need to see anyone. 

There is a $5.00 fee to replace the RFID card.


If passes haven’t been paid for yet, pay for your pass on-line ahead of time or see any cashier at the new ticket booth to complete this step.
Thank you,
