UPDATE 26 Feb 2019: Registration for Saturday's Black Mountain Classic Race and the post race luncheon have been moved to Rippling Rapids Golf Course located at 4849 North Black River Road. The reason for the change of venue on Saturday is the large volume of snowmobile traffic that comes with the great snow totals of this season. The Bluffs could not handle both the race and the snowmobile crowds comfortably. Rippling Rapids Golf Course is closer to the Race Start and Finish and the luncheon will be spectacular as usual. Rippling Rapids is also a Lounge and so you will be able to order your favorite adult beverages apres ski. (The Sunday Freestyle Race Registration and luncheon will remain at The Bluffs Restaurant where it has always been.)
