DAY ONE OF THE ALYESKA CHUGACH OPEN COMPETITORS COMPLETE TWO RUNS ON HEADWALL, FINAL RUN DELAYED

March 22, 2012 (Girdwood, Alaska) – The first day of competition in the 2012 Alyeska Chugach Open in Girdwood, Alaska wrapped up yesterday with a field of 36 men and 12 women completing two runs on the Headwall of Alyeska Resort.

Once patrol gave the green light, competitors hiked up the boot pack of the 1,000 foot vertical face for their inspection run, getting a chance to scope their lines on the way up. Clouds were intermittent and flat light persisted throughout the day, but the weather held out long enough for competitors to manage two runs in the heavy powder and variable visibility. The field of alpine skiers, snowboarders and telemark skiers put on a great show, working every feature of the long, steep terrain and enjoying the powder turns on the way down.

The competition judges use five categories to decide the winner of the event: line choice, fluidity, control, style/energy and form/technique. Line choice is the first score the judges decide, and all following scores are directly related to that line choice score. Each category is worth 10 points, with a total possible score of 50 points.

Race officials made the call after the close of competition to postpone Run 3 until Sunday, March 25, 2012 due to snowfall in the forecast. The venue and start time for Sunday’s scheduled one run will be determined after race officials assess the weather and snow conditions the morning of the event.
