Blue Mountain Racing Association (BMRA) with the help of sponsorship from Koch 33 Auto is providing an individually numbered bib for each PARA athlete to be worn while training at Blue Mountain. This bib is yours to keep. It must be worn at all times while training at Blue Mountain- both for weekend training and weekday extended training. No athlete will be permitted to make timed runs without their bib.
Lift attendants and ski patrol can identify PARA athletes by the bibs. Lift attendants will look for the bibs for access to racer line. Ski patrol will better be able to identify who should have access to Razors Edge for training. Be aware that the individual numbers also identify athletes who are violating the BMR Athlete Code of Conduct.
If the bib is lost or in need of replacement due to damaged, there is a $50 replacement fee. It is recommended that the bib is not worn outside of training to minimize chance of damage.
