After last year’s successful Wasatch vs. The World Skimo Race during the OR Show we are back at it this year. OR kicks off today with the on mountain demo and tomorrow commences the activities at the Salt Palace.
We have a morning race planned for Thursday, January 24 at 7AM at Brighton Ski Resort . Please be at Brighton no later than 6:45 AM as we will be starting at 7AM sharp start to ensure everyone involved in OR is done by 8AM and can get back to town and to the show by 9AM. The race will last about 1 hour or less and the format will be determined Thursday morning based on any snow we might get.
The race will be followed by awards at Milly Chalet. Milly Chalet wil also be serving their great breakfast.
Helmets, beacons, shovels, and probes are mandatory. It will be dark for the first part of the race so you may want a headlamp as well. All ski gear is welcome – split-boards, tele, AT, and race gear – as well anything from baggies to spandex.
Come up and see some of this year’s US National Team who will be competing in Pelvoux, France February 9-15, get in a good workout before your workday, and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine to start your day off.
