This week’s race encompasses a big loop with a quick downhill section close to the start and two booters. The loop will start and finish at the bottom of the Great Western Express lift. From the start, the course will be a skinner up into the trees of Elk Park. Once it flattens, there is a transition to a quick downhill to the lift. From there, it’s skinning and booting in the lift line until the course peels towards the ridge with another booter tucked in the middle. Finally, there’s a steep descent in soft snow on Rockin’ R, then a groomer to the bottom of the lift.
This course was set by our second guest course setter Logan. You too can come up and design your own course. We also still need lots of help for the remaining races for check in and course setter helpers. Sign up to volunteer here.
The race will start at 7pm sharp! Alpine Rose is open for us to have an awards party afterward. We have some great prizes and give aways from all our great sponsors Dynafit, Skimo.co, DPS, Gnarly Nutrition, and Voile.
