Tonight, Tuesday Feb 26th at 7:00pm, is the last night of the season to get yer suffer on at Brighton as part of the Wasatch Citizen Series ski mountaineering races. These events have been a great source of low pressure fun and even in the worst conditions 40-50 people have been showing up for them. Helmets and headlamps are mandatory, but entry fees and overt competitiveness are not. The after-race party at Molly Green’s has a great raffle for items like La Sportiva skis and other speedy trinkets.
On Thursday night, Feb 28th at 7pm, there will be an open forum discussion on the proposed SkiLink project. This event is unusual and unique as I believe it is the first time since SkiLink was announced well over a year ago that Mike Goar (CEO of the Canyons ski resort) will be a headliner at an open public discussion regarding this incredibly controversial project. Leslie Thatcher will be the moderator of the event, which is being promoted as a civil and respectful Q &A discussion. It will be held at St. Luke’s Church, which is located at 4595 N. Silver Springs Dr., Snyderville Area of Park City – behind the Blue Roof 7-11 Store off Hwy 224 two miles south of I-80.
