WPST ATHLETE REGISTRATION

WELCOME TO THE WORLD PRO SKI TOUR!

Below is the Athlete Registration Guide for the World Championships, inTaos, New Mexico

The World Pro Ski Tour’s World Championships, presented by Rocket Mortgage is just around the corner at Taos Ski Valley, NM, April 7-10, 2022. Enclosed you will find the schedule of events, and the 2022 Rules of Competition. We will be hosting a SL and GS (24 meters, +/- 3 meters) for both the men and women. There will only be one qualification, a super slalom for the weekend, which will be held on Friday, April 8. We will run the Super Slaloms on Saturday, with the GS to follow on Sunday. See the enclosed schedule for more details.

Our online racer portal is open for registration and payments. If you have not raced with us this year, you will be able to join the tour for these events. For the new members, you must register as a member first, set up a username and password, then pay the membership fee, and entry.

For athletes attending college, you will need to send me a photo of your active college id to be eligible for the college discount. Once received the code will be sent to you, you will need the code before you pay for your entry.

Unlike our other events, the RACER REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON SUNDAY, APRIL 3TH AT 4:00pm. This will give our staff and TV production crew time to prepare for these events. See below for further details on registration.

The Prize money breakdown will be announced next week. It looks like the purses will be larger than the past purses. We will qualify 32 for the men/open events if we have 28 or more athletes racing. For the women we will qualify the top 8. The prize money will be matched for both the men and women from the round of 8 to the finals.

For lodging we are working with The Blake Hotel. This is a five-star hotel with a higher price tag. If you are interested in this hotel go the link below for rates; https://www.inntopia.travel/Ecomm/Package/Package/8204620/enUS/?packageid=647 41&promocode=WPSTVEND22

If you have trouble with the link or need additional information, please to call The Blake directly at 855-385-0437 with this code – WPSTVEND22 (The Blake 116 Sutton Place, Taos Ski Valley, NM 87525). The Blake will open the reservations to the public on March 10, if this interests you, try book before the 10th.

If The Blake is not what you are looking for you can check with Airbnb, VRBO and a few local condo complexes as well. As I find more information on lodging, I will pass it on to everyone.

Due to the level of sponsors and VIP’s attending these events we would like all athletes to attend the racer meeting in person. If you can’t be present, you must have a representative to take your place. We will hold the bib draw for qualifying during the meeting with sponsor involvement, along any schedule changes, and athletes’ obligations during the weekend. At the end of this document the Zoom call-in information is listed. Let us know if you will not be able to attend in person.

Below you will find detailed information on registration and the online athlete portal. Only Members can race in Taos, NM for the World Championships.
