It is a race of endurance, one of tradition, skill, and honor. Generations upon generations of Wood River Valley residents have raced on its course, and stood on the podium with their hands held high. It is Dollar Mountain’s famed, Kindercup. And it is taking place this Saturday, on the sunny slopes of Dollar.
Almost anyone that grew up in this valley remembers their Kindercup racing days with fondness and smiles. And this year will be no different. This year marks the Kindercup’s 54th year of alpine racing for skiers and boarders aged three to 13. The Papoose Club race takes place Saturday, February 27th with all the action based out of Carol’s Lodge at the bottom of Dollar Mountain. Head to the Lodge or Sturtevant’s (the Ketchum or Hailey location) today or tomorrow to pre-register. Free registration takes place Saturday morning from 8:30- 9:30 am at Dollar Lodge with the races beginning at 10:15 am. An awards ceremony will also take place following all the action. See you out there!
