    Section Race is at HYLAND  


    We wish spectators to have an enjoyable experience rooting for their team while competitors have a safe and fair race course. Please follow the listed guidelines to ensure a successful event: 

    Spectator areas are highlighted in light blue on the map. 


    1) Ski to any point along the course before the race begins, and return on skis on the trail after the last competitor has passed, provided they have a valid trail pass. 

    2) Walk to any point along the course, as long as you are not walking on the trails. 3) Cross the trail on skis as long as there are no racers in sight. 

    4) Ring cowbells, cheer, post signs along the course, provided you remove any signs at the end of the day. 


    1) Be present in the start area or finish area at any time.  

    2) Walk on the trail at any time. There are plenty of ways to get to viewing points without walking on the trails. It is important to keep the trails clean, flat and compacted. 

    3) While on skis, cross the trail or ski on the trail when skiers are present. Visual contact with other skiers is important for racers. Just because there is a gap between skiers so that you can cross without touching a skier does not make it appropriate. If you can see a skier, then the skier can see you, and you should not cross. 

    4) Cross under any flags or over any fences. The flagged off/fenced areas are for coaches and officials only.

    Each school will be responsible to relaying the spectator limit (1-2) and enforce the social distancing/mask wearing guidelines as outlined in the below document.  In addition, please relay to each school that they are responsible for signing up the spectators.  They should have a sign-up sheet of who is planning to attend the meets which will help ensure the limit as well as be able to follow up if there would be a COVID exposure.  




    There will be a spectator entrance to the left of the start area. The start and finish will be fenced off. NO SPECTATORS ARE ALLOWED IN THE START/FINISH AREA NOR SHOULD THEY CONGREGATE OUTSIDE THE FENCE IN THESE AREAS. Spectators must go out onto the course, at least 100 metres from the start and finish.


    4) Team camps will be on the ball fields north of the parking lot. There should be no more than 7 athletes and three coaches per team in the team camps. No extra athletes, no parents, no spectators. You may have the necessary personnel to test wax.


    Banquet is not allowed.  WE will meet in the parking lot to distribute awards and return uniforms.  Date and time to be announced soon.
