MACC Racing Finale: The Marks Weekend!
March 3. The coming Marks weekend has historically included 3 races. This season, there will be 6 races! On Friday, we'll have 2 SL runs for race 8, as planned. But Saturday, there will be 3 GS runs. The first two are race 9, and the third run will be a makeup for the first GS, now renumbered as race 10.
On Sunday, there will be an extra SG run, making three runs total (2SG, 1SL). The two SG runs will contribute to the Cantor Cup (race 11), and will also count as a makeup for race 3. The SL will contribute to the Cantor Cup, and will also count as a makeup for race 4. Overall, the season will have 11 races, with 10 counting for World Cup points.
If conditions allow all races mentioned, the world cup total will allow 3 drops.
Feb 21. Finally! Great conditions, awards, and a 3-race weekend; Run 3 on Sunday was the race 5 makeup. Results are posted, and there there are three upgrades. Congratulations Brittany, Doug, and Jim!

MACC Racing: Who We Are
The Michigan Alpine Competition Council (MACC) is a non-profit organization made of amateur ski racers who work as volunteers to run the main Alpine ski racing program for adults in the Michigan region.
Our race series covers 12 races over five weekends each year at Boyne Mountain and sometimes Searchmont or Marquette. It's open to virtually all adult recreational racers and also 14, 15, 16, and 17-year old racers (a parent or designated adult for each junior racer must be on the hill when a junior racer competes).
You race in a class based on ability and gender. Ability groups with lots of racers are further divided by age. Most races are FIS slalom and giant slalom. We also have a genuine super-G and a super-combined fun race at the end of the season. Please see the Join and Info sections for details.
