Cough, gasp, wheeze, groan. Yes, it’s time for the annual Wasatch PowderKeg ski race which is taking place at Brighton next Saturday, March 10. And, not only is it on the 10th, but it is also the 10th annual! I’m psyched to see the tradition live on and the race just seems to get better every year thanks to Chad & Emily Brackelsberg and Voile.
There are many different options for your suffering pleasure. The Recreation division has male/female divisions and features 4 climbs with a total of 3,500′ over 6.5 miles. The Race division has male/female, plus subdivisions of race/heavy metal and a lung-frying 6 climbs with a total of over 6,000′ and 11 miles. The course description promises “captivating views of the Heber Valley” which means I might have to actually look up from my ski tips once or twice.
