Schedule Notes Following the loss of the scheduled events at Mammoth and Soldier Mountain from the original February schedule due to too much and too little snow, respectively, the series organizers agreed to add two DH races at Mammoth the last week of February to the NSS schedule. One of those was lost due to weather cancellation, but the second makeup race was successfully held on the final day of the DH week event.
