“Bib & Chips”
Available now on SkiReg.com
Closes December 1st.
NENSA and our venues are working tirelessly to produce a schedule of high level races that will keep competitors, officials and volunteers safe during the COVID pandemic. As per our Eastern Cup COVID-19 Contingencies we identified a system that will allow for touchless registration and timing systems. Competitors will purchase a race bib and rent and assigned timing chip. Each competitor’s bib and chip will follow them throughout the season as a NENSA, U.S. Ski and Snowboard and/or FIS number does. This effectively eliminates the need for typical registration / bib pick-up – eliminating a touch and gathering points at events. This purchase will also help subsidize the cost of vetting participants: athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers – including health screenings and adherence to state and county travel guidelines.
These bibs and chips will be used exclusively for the FIS competitions hosted at Craftsbury and all Eastern Cups. In order to compete in these events, you need to purchase your bib (you will keep it at end of the season) and rent your Zone4 chip (returned at your final start of the year). Eastern Cup fields (Eastern Regional Qualifiers) will have unlimited field size. FIS races at Craftsbury will be limited to racers with current FIS licenses and the field size is currently capped at 120 participants. If you intend to race in any of these races you need to purchase your NENSA bib and rent a chip.
Bib purchase and Chip rental ends on December 1st. At this point competitors will be assigned bibs based on List 10 of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard National Ranking List. Bibs will be distributed by Club / individually by mail or picked up at the Craftsbury Season Opener.
