Don’t forget to join us this Thursday at 7:00PM up at Brighton (meet at Great Western base) for the first event in our Citizen’s Skimo Series. Again, all levels and types of gear are invited. It’s free so there’s no reason to not come try and win a pie. Helmet and headlamps required. Hope to see you there!
Alright folks, it seems the interest is there to work on getting faster by chasing spandex clad skiers around. So in that vein, our first race will be Thursday, January 12th (with others to follow on intermittent Thursdays). Let’s shoot for a start time of around 7:00 PM. Everyone needs to bring a headlamp and follow Brighton’s new uphill policy for parking. Further details forthcoming as the date nears but be assured that winners will receive a prize (mostly likely to continue with the tradition of pies). Hopefully we can start a new tradition of sharing the pies and getting a drink at the lodge.
And BTW, all are welcome. At our recent informal holiday races the gear ranges from Dukes to Dynafits to Teles. Think of this race series as good training, a way to meet new partners, an intro to Skimo, a way to get gear savvy, or just a good time. Hopefully it will lead up to a faster Powderkeg and all around more skiing.
See you guys soon,
It has been talked about for several years and now thanks to the hard work of some of the local SkiMo racers (Andy, Jason, etc) we are going to start having regular SkiMo races at Brighton. Subscribe to this site and you will be emailed when the next race is posted.
