From March 12, 2020 until March 15, 2020

ATTENTION: For more information about the cancellation of this event, please CLICK HERE.

On Thursday, March 12th at 12:00 PM The Governor of Utah strongly discouraged holding gatherings of 100+ people within the state of Utah, per recommendations of the Utah State Health Department and local experts. Given that this event welcomes a far greater number of athletes, coaches, and families, the IFSA and Snowbird arrived at the decision to cancel this event.  
The event organizer listed on this page will contact you soon with information about refunds. Please allow time for them to reach out and reduce contacts. They are busy working to make changes and adjust the the fluid situation with the COVID-19 outbreak.

Open Event Registration Link:

Note: Due to the popularity of this event, It is **very** unlikely that space will remain in the 12-14 and 15-18 Ski Male divisions following Pre-Qualified and Team Quota registration. Based on prior registration numbers, these divisions will most likely sell out and we do not anticipate many spaces will remain for the ski male divisions once open registration begins. However, a waitlist will be made available.
