Results: US National Ski Mountaineering Championships

racers-climb-corbetsIt was a windy day for all the racers participating in the US National Ski Mountaineering Championships at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort yesterday. It was a qualifying event for the US World Championship Team and the top three finishers (no more than 20% off the winning time) have earned the right to represent the United States at the World Championships in Italy later this year. The race division results surprised me a bit and they might surprise you as well. Congrats to all the racers and Randokitty who came in first for the women and third overall in the Rec Class. Additional qualifying races are to be held at Grand Targhee today and in Sunlight Basin later this month.

    Wow, great results for randokitty! You’ll have to pry her training secrets (and managing her time) out of her for a guest post! Enquiring minds want to know.

    steve s…keeping up (and putting up) with randosteve i’m sure is great training for her. i think if she had light, race gear…she could compete in the race class. she’s tough.

    i heard it was anyones race until the end and the lead group was at the top of corbet’s together. also heard reiner was strong!!!

    i think many of the racers suffered from hypothermia due the the tough weather conditions.

    That was a really fun race- my first skimo race and I think it is safe to say I am hooked- now I just need to find some light skis! Congrats to RandoKitty- she was flying up gros vente. I finished just ahead of her in the rec division (second in overall), and she was really killing it

    I worked a contract with Reiner back in ’05. he was motivated back then to say the least. interesting seeing his name pop up in the rando scene.
