Racing, Monday - December 19
Mount Southington CT Ski Council Monday Night Racing Starts on December 19th (Snow permitting).
On December 19th the CSC and Mount Southington will host free Pizza night! (7:00 pm – 9:00+) for pre-registration & get together.
The CSC will (probably) not race on the night of December 19th but we will ask that you fill out your season registration form to eliminate the always hectic rush of the first night. If there is skiing, (but no racing) on the 19th you are welcome to ski (special ticket $ of $25.00) if area open. The CSC will have all registration forms available for you to fill out or you can print them out from the Mount Southington web page. There are 2 waivers = Mount Southington/CSC and NASTAR. There will be no cost for the night. Hope to see you – around 7:00 pm.
