This is a topic I have no knowledge on but would love some clarity.
Why are some guys skiing in open men in the regionals, and some guys that are open rated skiing in B3, M1, M2...whatever? What's the advantage or disadvantage?
Doesn't seem quite fair that a kid from my lake (B3) had to compete with KC Wilson and Zane Nicholson bc they didn't ski open. Yet it looks like in the western region, lots of guys were skiing in the open division.
