ATHLETE & COACH WAIVERS


Athletes and coaches must complete a waiver by Sunday, December 11th, 2022 at 5:00 pm.

Athletes without a signed waiver will not be allowed to preview course on Friday or start on Saturday.
Waiver: https://crestedbuttenordic.formstack.com/forms/waiver
PLEASE double check that your athletes and coaches have completed the waiver.

COACHES BIBS

 

NEW 12/14/22: Each club must fill out the following coach roster per TD request in order to get a coach’s bib. EXTRA bibs available for pickup in the race office (bib pickup) Saturday morning.


CB JNQ Coach/Tech/Volunteer Roster


In order to meet the US Ski and Snowboards MAAPP compliance, we ask that all coaches wear their US Ski and Snowboard Coaches bib. This ensures that your US Ski and snowboard coaches’ membership is active. Bibs need to be visible and are required for course access, in the waxing areas, and in the start/ finish stadium. If coaches have yet to receive their new US Ski and Snowboard bib for the season (orange bib), they should send their name and US Ski and Snowboard license number to Ben Theyerl at ben@cbnordic.org, and provide an extra bib or distinguishable from the CB Nordic bibs (i.e. old Birkie bib, etc…) (CB Nordic has a limited supply of extra bibs).

 

PROTESTS


OFFICIAL Protests must be filed in writing with the Chief of Competition by the end of the competition day. To be reviewed by the Race Jury.
For awards ceremony purposes: STRONGLY SUGGESTED that protests are filed within 15-minutes of the posting of unofficial results.
