Bogus Basin Night League Racing

The Night League is canceled for the 22/23 season

The Night Corporate Race League is an evening alpine racing league designed to encourage fun, competition and increased skill. Alpine, telemark and snowboarders over the age of 21 are invited to put a team together and sign up for the race series which includes an end-of-season banquet. You must have at least one female on your team. A team can have more than five team members but only the four fastest times including the fastest female time, will count. All team members must be entered in advance of the series to avoid the occasional “ringer” who stops by for a week.
