As athletes and parents gear up for the season, Ski Racing Media has partnered with brands across the industry to present a week of Virtual Race Nights, beginning Sept. 18.
Racers and parents have a lot of questions about the domestic ski season. Among them, access to gear and the beloved fall “race night,” where athletes of various teams meet with reps to get fitted for equipment and place orders for the season ahead. Shops across North America are presented with new challenges to host in-person race nights due to capacity constraints, travel restrictions, and social distancing requirements. While local clubs and retailers typically host these fall events, Ski Racing Media is pleased to step up to help facilitate these services virtually.
Mark your calendar for the following Facebook Live sessions, which will feature a question and answer portion for the audience.
