Fantasy Fun & Glory

New this year; the new Fantasy Fun & Glory league where you can build your dream racing team, compete against other members, and maybe even take home the cash prize. Learn more at the link below.


Fun & Glory Calcutta Auction

January 13 at the Stampede Après

Calcutta Auction: Open to all members (not just racers), whether carving down the slopes or cheering from the sidelines. Betting enthusiasts, irrespective of their downhill prowess, are invited to participate in the action.  

New: This season, we will be auctioning off a private training session with our top coaches. Gather your team and pool your resources for this one time only offer. 

How Does the Fun & Glory Calcutta Work?

Betting is open to all members who wish to participate (whether you are racing in Fun & Glory or not).  Teams will be auctioned off at the Calcutta Après. Winnings will be awarded based on team results at the end of the season. The amounts paid for the teams will be put into a pool. Prize money will be awarded as follows; 10% will be paid to the ski programs fundraiser, 50% will be paid to the purchaser of the winning team, 25% will be paid to the purchaser of the second-place team and 15% will be paid to the purchaser of the third-place team. 

Scoring

For the 2024 season, the Fun & Glory league will remain a team focused event. The tiered system will take the total number of registrants for the Fun & Glory League, and divide the total into segments, or groups, representing the number of teams to be formed for the season. Each tier will then be randomly sorted before teams are matched. This, in effect, will ensure that each team has one randomly selected representative from each tier. The tier and point system will be consistent between the two disciplines. 

End of season awards will include an overall team winner award (most points over the season), team participation award (most consistent turnout over the season), the Leadfoot Award (consistently fastest over the season) and the Most Improved Individual who improves their ranking the most between beginning and end of season) as well as some fun awards for couples!
