The final International Ski and Snowboard Association (ISSA) Giant Slalom and Slalom races will be held this Saturday, February 19, 2005 at Pennsylvania’s Ski Roundtop… It’s going to be a squeaker. Four teams will battle it out on the slopes for the Gold, Silver and Bronze.

BS Bombers now lead the Columbia Race Team by one point. ZARDOZ Renegades are in third place over the Fagowees by four points. It’s not too late to help your favorite team. Come on out, and help break the attendance record of 103 racers set at Liberty last week.

The Roundtop Race Course Crew will set a challenging Giant Slalom course from the top of exhibition. This course is longer than the typical NASTAR course.

A random drawing for the grand prize of an overnight ski and stay package that includes an 8-hour lift ticket and rentals, plus lodging at the Cana Country Inn - a nice local Bed and Breakfast - will be held one hour after the races are finished.

This race weekend is the final series of races held over the last two months at the following locations: Wisp, MD; Seven Springs, PA; Blue Knob, PA; Whitetail, PA; Canaan Valley, WV; Liberty, PA; and Roundtop, PA.
