Ready to race uphill?
Strap on your cross-country skis, or tie up your running shoes, and prepare to try for the Billy Dutton Uphill title to glory as the first one to reach the top of the KT-22 Mountain in Squaw Valley on April 12, 2015.
Starting at 8AM, adventurous men and women can run, snowshoe, ski, and climb a 3.2 mile course that reaches 2,000 feet upwards. There are separate divisions for those who ski and those who run/snowshoe. Pre-registration is $25 with a $30 fee the day of the race. You’ll go up the mountain, over the top to Shirley Lake and enjoy a brief downhill slide to finish at High Camp.
Billy Dutton was a founding member of the Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue Team in 1976. His life ended early as a victim of cancer. Known for his ready smile and many contributions to the community, this annual event carries on his name and his love of the outdoors. Proceeds will benefit the Juniors division of the Far West Nordic Ski Association.
