Thank you to the entire SARA community for your part in completing a full season of racing this past winter despite the disruptions and precautions caused by COVID-19 .  The SARA Board and member mountains worked hard to plan for the season using guidance from US Ski & Snowboard, host mountains and state and local authorities.  The season didn't look the same as past seasons, but with everyone's understanding, it was still SARA racing - fast skiing on southern mountains!
