Eaglecrest’s after-hours uphill-downhill race series is back with a virtual format, using the Strava App to record GPS and times. Download Strava, make a free account and familiarize yourself with it prior to participating.
There are three race routes, which are called segments in the Strava app. Each route is live through April 30, 2021. Run the races as many times as you want. Only your best time for each race will be scored. The racers with the most points will get their names on the Powder Keg Trophy!
The race hours align with Eaglecrest’s Uphill Policy. There is no uphill access within the ski area boundary on operating days during operating hours. Please read the full policy.
Participation is at your own risk! Ski Patrol services will not be available, and Eaglecrest is considered backcountry terrain when we are not operating. Pay attention to the Mountain Report at skieaglecrest.com/conditions for potential closures due to mountain operations and avalanche mitigation work.
There are men’s and women’s divisions for ski, telemark, and split-board. Points will be awarded to all racers based on the finish times. Division champions will be determined by averaging the racers’ two best point finishes. Champions’ names go on the trophy. Bragging rights are eternal! No prizes. Racers must carry an avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe.
