Snatched from the jaws of financial abandonment, I’m psyched to say the Wasatch PowderKeg Ski Mountaineering race will be back again this year by popular demand! The race was resurrected by a group of my neighbors here in Summit Park (aka Somewhat Dark, or The Alpine Slum), including Chad Brackelsberg, G and Mark Christopherson (of Voile) and many others. I am the dedicated Spiritual Advisor and for once, perhaps I’ll have a chance to actual partake in the race.
The PowderKeg is being reborn as a grassroots effort and Race Director Brackelsberg would love to have any and all help, volunteers (probably no coats this year – sorry), prize donations, and most importantly, racers show up and rock some phat pow on March 14th. The race is similar to the past four or so years, with the start/finish at the Alta Ski Resort, a variety of equipment categories and a booting section. Oh, and how could I forget… the moguls will be back as well. :)

Good job Chad, Mark, G and everyone else!
