Do’s and Don’ts for First Time Cookie Racers


  • You must register on Zone4 by [date]
  • Zone4 has a confirmation list of all kids — including yours — who have registered for the event.
  • Maps for the various race courses are on this page.
  • One to two days before the event, exact start times and assigned bib numbers will be posted for your child on Zone4

The Day of the Event:

Competitive racing begins in the morning. Recreational Racing begins early in the afternoon.

You must pick up your child’s bib between 11:30 and 13:00. Pickup is in the “blue room” above the “Barn”, behind the chalet. If you don’t know where that is, there will be signage. Please pick up you bib on time. No child can race without a bib.

If you haven’t already done so, do look for postings at the bib pickup area and at the results boards as to when you child’s race begins. Mass start races for 6+year olds begin in the early afternoon, followed by older skiers by year of birth. In all events girls and boys race separately.

Listen to the announcements over the loud speaker as to when your child should line up for their race. The call for lineup is typically 5 minutes prior to race start.

Do not walk across the course.

If you’re looking to have a ski prior to race start, the Inner/Outer Pond Loops and Horseman’s Pass loop will be open.

During the Race:

Don’t worry about your 6 year old. They will be escorted by Racing Rabbits around the course.

Please, walk in designated areas. Refrain from walking across the course

After the Race:

  • If your child raced in the mass start 6+ they get to keep their bib.
  • If your child is 7 or older, do make sure you child has returned their bib and gotten their cookie medal.
  • A limited number of gluten free, nut free medals will be available. Just ask a “Cookie Princess”
  • Don’t look for posted Race results for 6+. These are young children and for many a first introduction to racing. We want a positive experience for them.
  • Do look for Race results for those 7 and older. There will be an awards ceremony for the top 3 finishers in each category.

Above All:

Do have fun. This is a fun experience for racers, parents and organizers.
