Arslanbob Ski Race

     Our arrival in town coincided with the first ever Arslanbob Ski Race. Fortunately, we had a few days of Walnut Forest training to really get our ski legs under us before the big day. The kids raced a 1,500 ft. downhill course after being towed up by horse to the high point of "The Dog Road" 

Start of the Kid's Race


Chingaz the downhill champ!


    Twenty adults raced a very challenging 6.5 kilometer course with around 3,000ft of vertical. Guides from town dominated the long uphill, but Deb managed to chase them down on the flats, and with a quick transition to downhill she was near the lead. In a sprint finish, she came in 2nd place (1st place in the Women's Race) She says she should have won. Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda, I say.
1st Place in the Women's Race.

       Over three feet of new snow since we arrived. Time for some powder skiing!
