Stop 4 of the USSA SuperTour at ASC Training Center January 21-22, 2017
The SuperTour is a series of International Ski Federation (FIS) sanctioned cross country ski races taking place across America, produced by the USSA, together with its divisions and clubs. The SuperTour is a vital piece of the USSA’s development program, providing top level racing at key cross country centers around the nation. It’s a proving ground for club athletes with aspirations of making it to the U.S. Ski Team and competing on the FIS World Cup tour and in the Olympic Winter Games.
There are no refunds due to cancellation due to weather related problems. We will do our best to hold the races as long it is possible to get racers to the venue.

Weather Impacts and Driving Conditions
Racers, coaches/support staff, volunteers and spectators are encouraged to keep travel safe and arrive early on race days! The Training Center will be open at 6 am on January 21 & 22nd.
Freeway and feeder road backups can cause untenable delays so please plan ahead and keep an eye on road conditions prior to travel.
ASCTC is located at 7,100 ft. on Donner Summit and is legendary for heavy snowfall and huge snowpacks. Conditions are shaping up to be stormy into the weekend. During stormy weather chain controls from Truckee to the Summit, and from the Foothills east are the norm and teams should be prepared.
By far the best bet is to rent 4WD vehicles. AWD & 4WD vehicles with good tires do not require chains, but chain installers will try to lure you to the side of the road. Chains are required for all 2WD and rear wheel drive vehicles when chain controls are in effect. In the event that I-80 westbound is backed up due to chain controls in Truckee, taking Donner Pass Rd. west along Donner Lake and entering I-80 at the Donner Lake interchange exit can speed your trip up to the Summit.
Chain control areas can change rapidly from place to place due to changing elevation, weather and road conditions. Please check road conditions early and often. The resources below are the best – bookmark them and have them on your phones.
