Hello fellow shredders.  This is Dirksen.  The Dirksen Derby is on and is scheduled to be spectacular.  Thanks to a solid snowpack at Bachelor, the course has shaped up nicely with tight but fun head high berms all the way down the 30 second rally course.  A fresh storm should provide a nice dusting (3-9 inches) over the turns.  It takes about a minute to hike to the finish line from the West Village lodge.  For the top of the course you will need a lift ticket.

Here is some more info.  Hope to see you all soon,  Josh

Price:  $25 dollars for the contest entry fee (100% goes to Tyler Eklund), $25 dollar lift ticket with a valid Derby bib number.
