Points Racing is Back!

We have an awesome 2 loop course this week that we will be using to earn the most points possible. We have an upper loop and lower loop; do both or any combination to get the most points you can in an hour. Racing starts part way up the Great Western chair. Get up there early to make sure you make to the 7pm SHARP start.

It will take you about 10-15min to get to the start. Brighton is open for night skiing now, so Alpine Rose is open for us to have an after awards party! We have some great prizes and giveaways from all our great sponsors Dynafit, Skimo.co, DPS, Gnarly Nutrition, and Voile. 

Make sure you park over by Milli chalet and that you have signed the waiver for Brighton and the Utah Skimo waivers for either adults or  kids.  Don’t forget your helmet and headlamp!  

12-8 Race Map

First Tuesday night skimo race of the ’18/19 season!

Brighton has good coverage so we can start having some interesting courses. This week we will start at the base of Great Western lift. The course will be  about 400-500′ of skinning though the woods with a cruiser descent back down to the base of  Great Western. We will run a multi lap format of the course. Helmet and headlamp are MANDATORY!
 
As always, make sure you fill out and sign both waivers at utahskimo.org and please park by Milli Chalet and walk across the parking lot.
 
If you have not bought a Utah skimo membership yet, cruise on over to the website and get yours today.  Remember, this money goes to fund these races and the insurance we need to hold them.  We’ll see you there!
 

Skin the Turkey is on at Brighton!

The first race of the Utah Skimo series is happening this Thursday morning at Brighton Ski resort starting at 8am. Come on up and make some room for the turkey later! The course will start and finish at the bottom of the Snake Creek lift due to snow amounts. We have a short 500′ course that you will do several loops on. Because of this, you will have to skin to the start line which will take 15-20 minutes.

The race will start PROMPTLY at 8am, so plan on being to Brighton early to check in and skin to the start. Our suggestion is to be up to Brighton no later than 7:30am so you can check in and skin to the start. If you have not signed waivers yet, go to the utahskimo.org website and sign the Utah Skimo and Brighton waiver. This will save you some time in the morning so you don’t miss the start. Memberships can be done online on the website before you come up.

Remember to park by the Milli Chalet and walk over to Great Western lift for check-in and to start skinning. We will have awards and a raffle at the Alpine Rose afterwards. See you there!
