Saturday 24th August The Canberra Alpine Club Brumby Races 2024 (dual slalom) - The Brumby Races is an unusual event, as it's run as a dual slalom, and is usually set on Upper Roller Coaster or another course that less experienced racers can tackle.  One timed run on the red course and one on the blue course - the top racers then "race off" for the Presidents Cup.  The Brumby Cup, however, is decided at dinner that evening, with a random draw to pair up men and women - with the fastest combined time winning the Brumby Cup. Brumby Cup Registration Registration for the Brumby Cup closes at noon, Wed 21st August You will need to have a valid Snow Australia SnowID to register - if you need to sign up for a (free) SnowID, or renew an existing one, you can do so through the following link: Registration - Snow Australia
