USA Luge Challenge
- Date: - (all day)
Join us for the Norton/USA Luge Challenge
at Belleayre Mountain on February 11 & 12, 2017
As the top luge athletes from around the world compete in Europe and North America, USA Luge will bring the thrill of the sport to Belleayre.
Using easy to maneuver plastic sleds, patrons will get a chance to experience this exciting Olympic sport through the USA Luge Challenge. Team coaches and athletes will be scouting each event for young athletes who show potential. These youngsters may be invited to participate in screening camps at a USA Luge training facility in Lake Placid, N.Y. or Park City, Utah.
Families and winter sports enthusiasts who attend this weekend event can experience the Fastest Sport on Ice® in a safe slope-side setting, with help from USA Luge Olympians, international medalists and coaches. Participation in the USA Luge Challenge is free, and no experience or lift ticket is required. Registration begins at 9 AM each day.
After learning the basics of accelerating, steering and stopping from USA Luge athletes and coaches, adults and children, age 10 and older, can take practice runs down a track complete with curves and timing equipment.
In addition, fans can enjoy music and prize drawings while participants spend the afternoon tackling the course in a race against the clock to win valuable fun prizes from USA Luge, its sponsors and Belleayre Mountain.
Since 1996, the USA Luge Challenge has introduced the sport to thousands of fans nationwide.
