The 2010 Sun Valley Town Series Comes to a Close!

The Sun Valley Race Department put on another great season of racing for this year’s Town Series. Seven weeks of racing finished up yesterday, with a festive and green finale on Lower Cozy and a St. Patty’s Day after-party that any Irishman would be proud of. Teams came out in costumes, like SVSEF’s green maiden dresses, Team Lip Service’s one-piece ski suits and Mardi Gras boas, the Flat Out Ridiculous Team’s neon green wigs, the Blog Chicks’ matching socks, shorts, and shamrock headbands, and Wood River Masonry even lit rockets on the back of their skis.

Robin Sarchett was the overall winner yet again, beating second and third placed Carlo Rixon and Nate Schwing by seven tenths of a second. The top female was speedy Erika Hogan, who finished seventh overall, beating the second placed woman, Sarah Mazzola, by half a second. The rabbits this week were Chris Key (in one of his best finishes of the season) and Chris Campbell. The fifth placed male and female, and winners of a fifth of tequila, were Wes Powell and Toby Arnett.

The season’s top team, Scott USA, celebrated in style, breaking out the champagne on Apple’s sunny deck. Congrats to John Reagle, Toby Arnett, John Zuck, and Jeff Page. The four teams who rounded out the top five, and had their names in the drawing for three season-passes from Sun Valley Resort, were Casino Dancing Bears, Wood River Masonry, the Drunken Blumkens, and the Rainbow Warriors.The celebrating continued throughout the beautiful St. Patrick’s Day afternoon on Apple’s Bar and Grill’s packed patio with delicious corned beef and hash and tons of green beer.

Congrats to all the racers on another great season of World Cup Wednesdays! A big thanks goes out to Mike Wrobel and the rest of the Sun Valley Race Department. Another thanks goes out to the Valley bars and restaurants who sponsored the 2010 Town Series parties!

Kindercup Race Action This Saturday!

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!

Week Three of the Sun Valley Town Series is in the books.

Week Three of Sun Valley’s Alpine Town Series took place yesterday on a sunny course on Lower Cozy. The course was fast and turny, shaking up the team standings. Last week’s first place six-way tie was broken as Team Ski Tek Trainwrecks took the lead while favorite, Team SVSEF fell to 24th place and last year’s winners, Tekasoreass’s dropped to eighth.

There was also a new first place skier in the individual standings. Tekasoreass’s Carlo Rixon took the top spot, beating second place Nate Schwing by six tenths of a second and last week’s winner, Robin Sarchett by the same. Powerhouse and last week’s top female, Erika Hogan, had the undisputed best crash of the day, luckily walking away unscathed from a yard sale on her first run. This week’s fastest female was Sarah Mazzola with Tine Cordeau finishing just behind her.

The fifth place male and female were Matt Murphy and Kirsten Hagfors, sharing the honorary fifth of tequila. The rabbits (halfway finishers) were local celebrity Lenny Joseph and Mitra Marie. The Cellar Pub hosted a great after-party that included build-your-own pulled pork sliders and instant replays of Erika’s crash. There are no races next week but check back in two weeks for more results of World Cup Wednesday.
