DIVISIONS

For the 2013 Derby, there will be nine divisions:

  • Mens Snowboard (ages 14-34)*
  • Gentlemens Snowboard (ages 35-49)*
  • Older and Wiser (men and wommen ages 50+)
  • Womens Snowboard (ages 14-49)
  • Groms Snowboard (boys and girls ages 13 & under)
  • Mens Splitboard (all ages)
  • Womens Splitboard (all ages)
  • Sit-Ski (men and women all ages)
  • Derby Elites Snowboard (pro riders only)**
* All racers should enter the division within which they think they can win. There is no such thing as "sandbagging" at the Derby.
** This year's Derby Elite division will be open to any pro/expert snowboarder who is looking for a more "intense" racing experience. The entry fee is $100; there will be a one-run qualifier for the finals and our goal is to have most of the racers in this division "blow out" on the first run. Plan accordingly!
