27th annual Paul Augustine Junior Championships



Hello from the Paul Augustine Junior Championship race organizers!


The Paul Augustine Race is this Sunday, February 19th.  We are excited that you are coming to this very festive day! 

Parking for Team Afton’s fundraising event:

We anticipate over 450 racers on the hill on Sunday – it’ll be a busy place to say the least.

The west lot adjacent to the race hills is considered premiere parking. Parking in this lot will be "First Come ~ First Served" and will be available for $40 CASH ONLY.  There will be parking attendants to collect money and direct you to reserved spots. 


PRE-PARKING in the West Lot (e.g., Saturday night) will NOT be allowed. All vehicles left in the lot on Saturday night will be towed. 


For all participants wishing to take advantage of free parking, we will be running a shuttle from other Afton lots.

We are looking forward to the 2016 / 2017 season. Registration is not open yet, but please check back in late June. USSA and FIS registration are open for those competing in Southern Hemisphere races this summer. Go to to register for USSA.

Your Region 1 board is hard at work this summer on a number of initiatives. We are continuing to look at ways to expand Lunar cup and we have formed a Race Day Improvement committee this summer.  This committee will look at all aspects of the race day, from the pre-planning of each race weekend through the posting of results. The intent is to improve the operations of running a race.

Have Fun, Stay Local, Race!

Region 1 is launching the Lunar Cup new in 2015! Lunar Cup is a 4 race series in the Twin Cities area for athletes under the age of 12. 

The Lunar Cup is designed for newer racers that are looking to test their skills against other athletes in the Twin Cities Area, but do not want to commit to a full non-scored racing schedule.

It is open to any athlete, including those receiving instruction outside of a full USSA club program, e.g., traveling ski schools: Blizzard, Ski Jammers, Otto Hallus, or D-Teams, or Independents participating in NASTAR racing and the like.

Lunar Cup is easy, 1 stop shopping. Simply sign up for Lunar Cup and show up to the races. Lunar Cup fee's include all registrations you need to race in the series.
