On Saturday, March 15, 2014, our club Central Pennsylvania Sleds and Treads, Inc. (formerly Highland Lake Snowmobile and Outdoor Recreation Club) and Ski Sawmill Family Resort will host the 9th Annual King of the Mountain Hill Climb.
RACER INFORMATION AND RULES
Our event is organized and operated by volunteers within our club and sponsored by many generous businesses. This is NOT a sanctioned race event. We simply ask that you following our safety rules as published and have a good time. The success of this event over the years is a direct result of the fun atmosphere set forth by our amazing volunteers and our relationships with our racers.
If you have never attended a snowmobile hill climb, this event is for you whether you are a spectator or a participant.
REGISTRATION FROM 7:30AM-9:30AM!
THE DRIVERS MEETING WILL IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW THE OPENING CEREMONY.
RACES BEGIN AT 10:30 AM SHARP!
RACERS - YOU CAN AND SHOULD WALK THE MOUNTAIN! IT IS A SKI SLOPE AND HAS UNEVEN TERRAIN.
Our event offers eight (8) classes of racing. STOCK CLASSES: 500CC, 600CC, 700CC, 800CC, AND 1000CC, AND MODIFIED 600, 800, AND OPEN.
Why we only offer eight classes is due to the fact that we want to keep this event as simple and fun for everyone involved. That said our Tech Staff is very aware of many snowmobile upgrades and modifications that a racer can do to their sleds. All we ask is you be honest and upfront with modifications. If not the Tech Officials will assign you to a class and
ALL DECISIONS OF THE TECH OFFICIALS ARE FINAL!

IF YOU DO NOT SEE YOUR SLED LISTED, YOU ARE NOT SURE OF THE CLASS YOU WOULD RUN, OR YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL. PLEASE NOTE: ALL FACTORY RACE SLEDS, TRAIL CONVERTED OR NOT, SHOULD CALL AHEAD. THEN THERE ARE NO SURPRISES AND THE DAY (ESPECIALLY TECH) WILL RUN SMOOTHER FOR EVERYONE!
SLEDS WITH MOTOR MODIFICATIONS CANNOT RUN IN THE STOCK CLASSES.
TO ENTER ANY CLASS EXCEPT 600 & UNDER MODIFIED, 800 MODIFIED, OR OPEN MODIFIED, THE SNOWMOBILE IS TO BE TRAIL RIDEABLE.
EXAMPLE: If your snowmobile is factory marked as a 700CC regardless of age or factory stated horsepower, it runs in the 700CC Class. You may also choose to run in the 800CC Class if so desired. YES! Bone stock trail sleds and trail sleds with certain modifications other than motor modifications (EXAMPLE of motor modifications would be aftermarket heads) can run against each other. (REMEMBER, We designed this race to be like a weekend grudge match.)
THERE IS NO CC RESTRICTION FOR OPEN MODIFIED CLASS. 700CC CAN RUN AGAINST 1000CC IN THIS CLASS. IF YOUR SLED HAS A NON-FACTORY INSTALLED TURBO OR A NOS KIT, THEN IT MUST RUN IN THE OPEN MODIFIED CLASS REGARDLESS OF ITS CC CLASS. ANY SLED RUNNING NITROUS, PROPANE, OR METH-INJECTION WILL BE IN THE OPEN MODIFIED CLASS.
ANY SLED RUNNING RACE FUEL WILL BE BUMPED TO THE APPROPRIATE MODIFIED CLASS.
PLEASE NOTE: TRACK LUG HEIGHT RULE HAS BEEN REMOVED…
NO RESTRICTION ON STUD HEIGHT OR TRACK LUG HEIGHT IN STOCK CLASS.
MODIFIED STUDS OR ANY TYPE OF CHISELS OR SHOVEL STYLE STUDS WILL BUMP YOU TO THE APPROPRIATE MODIFED CLASS.
NO CHAINING OR LOWERING OF ANY SLEDS!
