Masters Thanks Doug for skiracereg.com

By Lauren Beckos
November, 18 2022
The Masters thank Doug Briggs for more than a decade of providing the skiracereg.com registration platform.
The Masters thank Doug Briggs for more than a decade of providing the skiracereg.com registration platform.

If you have raced with Masters over the last 18 years, just hearing the website skiracereg.com (SRR) gives you the warm winter fuzzies. It has been the primary pathway for getting signed up for masters ski races and associated masters fun and events. If you don’t already know his name, be sure the name Doug Briggs, Mr. SkiRaceReg, is one that will echo in Masters history. SRR which started in the Rocky Division to ease the race registration process quickly grew to support eight of the masters race series with registration, member management, email management, and many other finical management aspects of operating the race series as well regional, national, and FIS masters events. SRR streamlined our registration not just within divisions, but across divisions.

Doug provided seemingly boundless support for the racers and race series while not charging members for use of the platform. From 5-packs, to selling bibs, to managing teams, to year end reporting – there was no idea too big or too small – Doug was patient and supportive to update and improve SRR to help the series better serve and interact with the members. We have been truly lucky to have a dedicated registration platform made by a fellow racer. Though we will miss working with him on SRR we are delighted that he will still be around as a fellow competitor and friend! We are excited that retirement from SRR means he will have more time to travel, do more races, and continue coaching fellow racers at speed events. Doug, a former US Alpine Team Athlete supports several speed training camp days at Ski Cooper and has invaluable feedback whether you are new to the sport or have decades of experience. Doug is a repeat winner of the coveted Wolf Cup DH trophy at Ski Cooper.

 

We would like to thank Doug Briggs for maintaining and adapting SRR which has been a tremendous asset for our masters divisions for more than a decade. We are truly lucky to have him in our masters community. At the end of the 2022 DH Nationals at Ski Cooper, the divisions presented Doug with a new touring setup and gift card for more outdoor gear. “Cheers” Doug and see you out there for many more years - wax side down!


Administrative note: Many masters divisions now use masters.adminskiracing.com for race registration.

“Xfinity Birds of Prey is always an exciting time for our community. We are honored to be a part of a very small group that has been hosting World Cups for 55 years,” said Sarah Franke, VP of Operations and Marketing for the nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation, which organizes the event each year. “Although Mother Nature gave a little help this year, all credit and thanks go to our longtime partner Vail Resorts, and their amazing and dedicated Beaver Creek Mountain Operations team. It is looking beautiful up at the race course and we are looking forward to welcoming back the world’s fastest men on skis.”

Xfinity Birds of Prey Race Schedule

Friday, Dec. 2, 10:15 a.m. – Downhill

Saturday, Dec. 3, 10 a.m. – Downhill

The weekend also includes a Stifel U.S. Alpine Team Signing, free live music, a visit from Santa, Beers of Prey, fireworks, the Pumphouse Bar, sponsor activations and much more.

    The 2022 Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel is officially on! The International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) gave the green light for the first domestic World Cup of the season. The Stifel U.S. Alpine Team women’s tech team will travel to Killington, Vt., over Thanksgiving weekend for two days of racing in front of tens of thousands of passionate and loud fans on the iconic Superstar course. 

    Read more about the positive snow report courtesy of Killington. 

    KILLINGTON, Vt. (Nov. 16, 2022) – Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in Eastern North America and part of POWDR, is pleased to have received a positive snow control announcement from FIS (International Ski Federation), the governing body of the FIS Ski World Cup. 

    With this announcement, Killington Resort can assure international race teams and ski racing fans traveling to central Vermont for Thanksgiving weekend that both the giant slalom and slalom races will take place as scheduled on November 26 and 27.  

    General admission tickets are available for $5 at  www.killington.com/worldcup. All general admission proceeds will benefit the Killington World Cup Foundation to provide grants that support winter sports in the Northeast. Limited Sunday VIP Packages are available through the Killington World Cup Foundation at kwcgivesback.org. All Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel spectators will need a ticket to gain entry to this year’s event. 

    “I can confidently say that the entire Killington community is excited, and maybe a little relieved, to hear the news of FIS approval for race course snow preparation, giving the green light to bring world class elite ski racing to the East coast in just over a week. After such a warm fall, and with several races cancelled elsewhere in the world, receiving the FIS approval is a testament to Killington’s powerful snowmaking system and expert team,” said Herwig Demschar, SVP of international business development at POWDR and World Cup local organizing chairman. “The sixth iteration of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup will be another incredible weekend of competition and camaraderie. Athletes from more than 20 countries are on their way to the Green Mountain State in the coming days, and the resort, POWDR, and Killington community are delighted to welcome them all.” 

    Snowmaking continues on Superstar and Skylark in preparation for the race until a few days before, when the grooming team will take over to finalize the course. Skiing and riding is also available, as Killington Resort will open the North Ridge area for passholders on November 17 and the general public the day after. The team continues its efforts to expand skiable terrain whenever conditions allow.  

    A full schedule of events at Killington Resort during World Cup Weekend including race start times, entertainment, concerts by Michael Franti, Noah Kahan, Stephen Kellogg and DJ Angie Vee, plus information on many free parking and shuttle bus options is available at  www.killington.com/worldcup.

    U.S. Ski & Snowboard to Launch Women’s Initiative Heroic at 2022 Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel

    U.S. Ski & Snowboard announces the launch of the Heroic Initiative—a movement celebrating and empowering women in skiing and snowboarding. The multi-faceted program will be brought to life at the newly renamed 2022 Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel, the world’s most attended women’s FIS World Cup, as a space to discuss, honor and lead innovation in women in skiing and snowboarding. Stifel is the first partner of an activation as part of the Heroic program. 

    The initiative is designed to celebrate the power of women while also investing in their future success. In the 2022-23 debut season of Heroic, the first focus will be coaching, launching at Killington. While the participation of women in skiing and snowboarding continues to grow, only 25% of skiing and snowboarding coaches are women with even less representation at the elite level. Heroic Coaching aims to increase the number of women coaches at all levels of our sports.

    “The Heroic Initiative was created because U.S. Ski & Snowboard is committed to providing more leadership, opportunities and mentorship for women to achieve further greatness in our sports,” says Sophie Goldschmidt, President and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “This multi-faceted and purpose-driven initiative aims to empower, inspire and lead women in their fields on and off the snow and we could not be more excited to kick it off at the 2022 Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel.”

    The Heroic initiative is building on a program spearheaded by leading women at the organization, including U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Director of High Performance Gillian Bower, DPT, Director of Sport Science Tschana Schiller, Director of Sports Medicine Jaron Santelli, MD and Clinical Specialist Torey Anderson, DPT. The system includes health and wellness programs to help female athletes track their hormone levels and menstrual cycles to gain knowledge about their personal physiology, know how to better fuel their bodies and make better-informed decisions on their training schedules and intensity levels. The team has also engaged two additional female sports psychologists in 2022 to provide more opportunities for women athletes to connect and develop a relationship with a woman provider.

    Additionally, U.S. Ski & Snowboard plans to work with women leaders in other industries to provide fellowships for athletes and women in the industry, as well as long-term goals to develop grants to address core challenges. These objectives include programs like flex funds to allow a woman coach to step in for another woman coach when one has responsibilities outside of her sport, a childcare fund to support coaches of all genders bringing their children on the road or need childcare while working, studies to learn about the barriers preventing women from rising as coaches, and mentorship programs to allow female coaches to learn elite coaching strategies on the national team. 

    “Hosting the best female alpine skiers in the world each year is just one thing that’s made Killington the premier destination for women’s alpine skiing and its fans,” says Killington Director of Brand Marketing and Events Amy Laramie. “Our commitment to empowering women lasts long after the Killington Cup is over. The Beast has produced Olympians such as Donna Weinbrecht and Hannah Soar and we’ve consistently hosted women’s camps and clinics for years, just a few of the reasons we’re proud to be an epicenter of women’s skiing.”

    The first-ever Heroic Summit will take place at the annual Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel and will feature speaker panels and meet and greets, all centered around the common goal of advancing women in winter sports.

    (PARK CITY, UTAH)  — Pacifico® extends contract as the official beer of U.S. Ski & Snowboard for the 2022-23 season. Pacifico has been a premier corporate partner since January 2019 and will continue to serve our fans and athletes in the upcoming year.

With support from the surfing community, Pacifico has grown to be the beer for independent spirits who followed their own path. The brand has been a steadfast supporter of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team for years.

    “We are very excited to extend our partnership with Pacifico as the official beer of U.S. Ski & Snowboard,” says Sophie Goldschmidt, President and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “For years, Pacifico has been a loyal, creative partner and we look forward to having their great product on hand for our fans to enjoy at every domestic World Cup around the U.S.”

    With the extension, Pacifico remains a partner throughout the 2022-23 season at hospitality events, après parties, vendor villages and within the competition spectating areas at each domestic World Cup event, including:

    Freeski and Snowboard

    About Pacifico®

    Pacifico Clara® is a golden lager with a crisp, refreshing, flavor. Founded in Mazatlán, Mexico in 1900, Pacifico was originally “imported” to the U.S. by Californian surfers who visited Baja, loved the beer and brought it back to the U.S. to share with other like-minded individuals. Those surfers epitomized the essence of Pacifico – independent spirits who followed their own path – and their spirit is carried on by the brand to this day.

    Stifel U.S. Alpine Team athlete and seven-time World Cup podium finisher Breezy Johnson announced Monday that she is bisexual. 

    “So I'm bisexual. Before this season starts I wanted to be open about who I am,” said Johnson in a recent social media post

    Johnson made the official announcement Monday morning via her personal Instagram page. She details in the post that she wants people who ever feel different to feel loved and represented.  

    “To those people out there who feel a little different and want to see people like them at the top I am here to represent that we are out there, we are normal, and we can do whatever we want,” said Johnson. “To the trolls who want to hate, hate doesn't beat love…To those who just want to hear about racing, headed to Copper for the final training block! LFG With love to all who support me, I appreciate it.”

    U.S. Ski & Snowboard stands behind Breezy in her announcement and is proud of her for coming out publicly.  

    “We as an organization not only stand behind Breezy in her announcement but support her in this moment,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard President and CEO Sophie Goldschmidt. “We are very proud to have her represent our team and our country and now the LGBTQIA+ community.”

    Chief of Sport Anouk Patty also shared her support. “I am so proud of Breezy,” said Patty. “It takes courage to be true to yourself and to be a role model for others. She is so strong and amazing both on and off the hill. I’m so happy today for our team and our sports broadly. When every athlete can be their true selves, they are their best selves."

    Johnson is currently at the official training venue, Copper Mountain, as she prepares for the season ahead.
