Utah Skimo Citizen Series Race #1 - Skin the Turkey

I don't have time to do a full race report, so here are some links to some other blogs with pictures and videos of the first Citizen Series race of the season.  There will be a total of 11 races throughout the year and they are a blast!




There were record crowds on Thanksgiving morning.  Nearly 100 people!  The Wasatch already has one of the strongest communities for Skimo in the country and it is growing quickly.

If you've never been out to these races, definitely come join in the fun.  The races are free (donations are great to help pay for insurance, but not required), there's always a lot of swag given away after the race, and it's a good excuse to get into the mountain for some exercise in the middle of a busy work week.

To join Utahskimo, go to Utahskimo.org and click "register."  It's a $30 fee which will get you a year membership, get you into each race for free (what a deal! 11 free races for FREE!), give you a 15% discount on all backcountry skiing and snowboarding and mountaineering equipment at GEAR:30, and, most importantly, it helps pay for insurance for the Citizen Series races and allows the Skimo scene in Utah to continue to grow.
