Wasatch PowderKeg 2011

there is but one ski mountaineering race in the mighty wasatch mountains ~ the wasatch powder keg.  it was started ages ago by butch adams and fellow backcountry.com pro team member andrew mcclean.  it’s now directed by the wonderful chad and emily brackelsberg.

i had the pleasure of helping scout this years new course. they’ve added a climb to make the race division 5,500 feet. my repeated requests for a 15,000 – 20,000 foot ultra-stupid category have unfortunately fallen on deaf ears… they think i’m kidding apparently.
