The finish will be near the observation tower at the top of Rib Mountain which is the furtherest point into the park by road. Please note there is a speed bump that skiers will need to negotiate at the ranger station as you reach the top of the hill to enter the park. The right lane will have a barrier that will be raised during the race and you should use that side.
