Local's ski race

Back in the 80's, Park City used to have regular ski races for the locals. It was a big event and lots of people turned out to race or to cheer people on. After a few decades of inactivity, the Town Races have started back up.

Having just had surgery and not actually knowing how to race, I have no immediate plans to partake, but who knows.

Of course, in a town like Park City, the competition can be a bit above average. At the first race, the women's division was won by three-time Olympian Heidi Voelker. Sometimes living in a town full of Olympic skiers can be intimidating.
