2017 MFA Competition Schedule

EVENT DETAILS

Schedule for the day (remember, this is not a timed event and times are approximate):

  • Registration is at 9am in the Hyland Chalet.
  • Training starts approximately 9am. 1 Hour of training
  • Course closes for short maintenance period (approximately 10-15 minutes)
  • Comp starts after 1 hour of training and the maintenance period ends.
  • Comp end time depends on number of skiers entered and pace of the event
  • Each competitor will have 2 runs in the meet they enter.  Best run counts.
  • This is a double meet, meaning there are 2 Slopestyle competitions back to back.
  • All awards will be after all scores for both events have been totaled.
  • New to USSA competition?  Make sure you check out this handy guide written by a Nybora parent alum, Al Dutcher.

If you want to compete, you need a USSA LICENSE! Take care of this BEFORE you get to Hyland. 

All Nybora and MFA events will be sanctioned by the United States Ski Association (USSA).  That means that in order to participate in a MFA or Nybora competition event this season, the participant needs to obtain a USSA license/membership.  PLEASE OBTAIN YOUR USSA LICENSE PRIOR TO THE EVENT.  This is a competitor license that can be obtained online (info on how below).  Having USSA sanction all of our events helps ensure a consistent and safe event and allows all of our events to receive a national ranking.  National ranking is important to the division because it is through national ranking that we are able to qualify skiers for Junior Nationals at the end of the season.

USSA offers licenses from the USSA website:

http://my.ussa.org/membership/start

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SIGNUP FOR USSA AT HYLAND. PLEASE REMEMBER TO OBTAIN YOUR USSA LICENSE BEFORE THE EVENT AND TO PRINT AND BRING PROOF OF MEMBERSHIP TO REGISTRATION!!!

And… once again this year, Central is the ONLY division WITHOUT a division fee!  So you just need to get your USSA License (outlined above) and you’re set!

If you have any questions, please contact info@nybora.com.

We hope you’ll be a part of the fun with Midwest Freestyle Association this season!

There are plenty of opportunities to compete in Freestyle skiing.  Just take a look at the 2017 Schedule found on this website.  You will need a USSA License to compete.

Each meet will have an event registration fee, but they’ve been kept low again and will range in price depending on the event.
Central is the only division that does not charge a division fee at the beginning of the season.

The 2017 season should be a blast!

Thank you,
