The VHCS Finale, the Hellmenkollen 3 lap marathon, is set to go on Wednesday. Conditions at the Ho are still quite good even though they are now officially closed. The Hellmenkollen is a 3 lap freestyle pursuit. Skiers are handicapped at the start based on their average % back throughout the course of the season with the fastest skier going last. The first one across the line wins!
Jon Santor is currently in the lead for the Viking Helmet and a top 3 finish would guarantee the overall Viking Helmet championship. However, Chris Rose, Jim Kobak, Keith Kogut, Janet Findlay, Amanda Zullo and Ed Lis are still in contention if they can pull of a victory and all of the cards fall in their favor.
