Come out and test your speed, strength, and endurance at this year’s GORE-TEX® Wasatch Ski Mountaineering Race at the OWM All Mountain Demo. The race will support the US Ski Mountaineering Association (USSMA). The USSMA sanctions and governs competitive ski mountaineering racing in the US and promotes and fosters recreational ski mountaineering through access, resources, education, and community.
The race is open to anyone over 18 and of any ability from first time racers who just want to see what ski mountaineering racing is all about to seasoned veterans. Any randonnée, telemark, or split-board gear is allowed. Racers must have skins for the ascents, not snowshoes or walking. Parking for on-mountain demo is crowded so arrive early, carpool, and/or take the bus
The race will start at 2:00 PM at the base of Solitude at the All Mountain Demo area. The race will feature short and long course options and will last approximately 1 hour.
