Spring-Fling Race & Sprint Relay

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Masters, Salt Lake Nordic Ski Team Juniors, and Park City Juniors competed in two races Saturday on Solitude Nordic Center’s beautiful high mountain track. Skiers skied in costume for the annual Solitude Spring-Fling. Wasatch Citizen racer Pat McEwan leads the Shoeshine Boys band.

After the barbeque,  skiers tried to sprint a 1.2k loop in team relays.  Competitors ranged from 8 years old through an Olympian in a grand late season race following four feet of new snow this week.
