2 x Slalom (CANCELLED)

Whaleback Mountain

Jan. 9, 2024 - Races Cancelled

The Slalom races scheduled for Saturday at Whaleback have been cancelled. Whaleback initially believed they would have enough snow to get adequate coverage but unfortunately they just don't have enough depth on the trail. Tough start to the season. Looking forward to getting another shot at this great place in March. :(


NEMS is thrilled to return to Whaleback for an exciting day with TWO Slalom races (4 runs) at one of the most uniquely awesome race trails around. Following the races be sure to stick around for the after-party where we'll be handing out awards and prizes from our sponsors. \

Things to Consider:

The great thing about Whaleback is that everything is close. The parking lot is 60 seconds off the highway and is right next to the Base Lodge and the snow. Race registration will take place in the Base Lodge (see Race Info Sheet). You can get ready in the lodge and leave your bags or you can simply drop your bag back at your vehicle. 

The main chairlift is what you will take to get to the race start. The lift is next to the Base Lodge.

Whaleback does have a small cafeteria and serves breakfast and lunch. Options are limited compared to bigger venues, so consider that when thinking about food for the day. There is a full service bar upstairs as well.
