On Saturday the first and second runs for the 2 and 3 person division will start at 8 a.m. At noon there will be costume contest parade in Tobogganville. Following the parade are the first runs in the 4-person division.
Sunday morning the second runs in the 4-person division will start at 9 and the Snow Bowl will be open for skiing and snowboarding. The final runs for the 2-person teams start at noon and will be followed by the 3 and 4 person divisions.
The awards ceremony takes place in Tobogganville about 3p.m.
The most revered prize of the past 26 years of U.S. National Toboggan Championships is to win first place in the 4-person division. The division has twice as many teams as the other two combined, and has twice as many teams in the finals, based on fastest times. No matter which division you’re in, everybody goes down the same 400-foot-long wooden chute, some close to 40 mph.
