Koppenberg Circuit Update: Sunday's Race in Superior, CO
UPDATE 3/27/09 10:46am
The sun is out. We should see some significant melting today and still plan on plowing & shoveling today. Worst case, we will make a call to cancel by 2pm tomorrow.

UPDATE 3/26/09 12:40pm
Yes we know its snowing. Here is the plan...
We have arranged for the hill to be plowed Friday afternoon after the snow stops. From there we will hand shovel the rest. With the sun and wind expected for Saturday, it should be dry enough for racing on Sunday.
