The event is broken down into four separate age categories for both the men’s and women’s divisions: nine and under, 10-11, 12-13 and 14-15.

“The competition is open to the first 100 competitors who register and is open to the general public,” Competition Center officials stated. “As such, pre-registering is encouraged.”

Anyone looking to preregister for the event will find a reduced registration fee. Competitor lift tickets are available for any prospective athletes who do not already have a season pass. Registration forms can be found on the Winter Park Resort website by searching for Vans King of the Grommets.
