The fun tradition is open to skiers of all ages, abilities, and disciplines including skiing, telemark, and snowboarding. The likes of Tommy Moe and Picabo Street have raced in Utah Winter Games races. Now it's your turn. Twenty different race classes are offered based on age and gender. Each competitor will receive a goody bag and prizes from Utah Winter Games sponsors. Simply sign up the day of the race at the resort to participate. Cost is $10, plus resort lift ticket (discounts are available for race participants). Participants must race in at least two qualifiers, or win one gold medal in a qualifier, to qualify for the race series finals. Visit utahwintergames.org or call 1-866-OLYPARKS for more information.
