The Eastern swing of the Regional Pacesetting Trials saw great racing and excellent snow conditions at each hosting resort. The tour started at Seven Springs, PA and Keith Poore proved that the South has great ski racers as he recorded a 0.26 handicap for Snowshoe Mountain Resort. The team race was won by Roundtop Resort and the host resort, Seven Springs, took second place in the team competition. Third place went to Blue Knob All Season Resort which included the fastest lady of the day, Kari Jingozian, scoring big points for her team with a handicap of 8.74.

The tour moved North to Labrador Mountain outside Syracuse New York for the second stop on the tour and The Post Standard came out to cover the race. It is always tough to beat the home team on their turf and Labrador showed they were up to the task taking first place in the team race. Greek Peak had a solid race to take second place and Bristol Mountain brought the bronze back to Rochester. Chris Engle of Labrador posted a 2.49 handicap to record the lowest handicap of the day and his sister, Meredith Engle, was the fastest lady with a 14.68 handicap.

The slalom races at the Pacesetting Trials continued to draw excitement. Many pacesetters commented that they had not run slalom for years and that the new NASTAR slalom format with stubby gates was a blast. With shorter radius turns and more turns pacesetters were standing in the finish area breathing hard and laughing. The shorter turns favor a different group of skiers and it was great to recognize the fast slalom skiers during the awards ceremony.
