2015 Vertfest

Please join us for the 12th annual Wasatch Powderkeg Ski Mountaineering Race and the 2nd annual Vertfest ‚ÄčBackcountry Celebration at Brighton March 6-8.  The Wasatch Powderkeg will feature a Friday sprint race, a Saturday Individual race, and a Sunday technical teams race.  Race details and entry information will be coming soon 

There will be gear demos and a series of backcountry skills clinics along with the race. 

This is your chance to go fast up and downhill with world class racers and local backcountry skiers, check out new gear, learn some new backcountry skills, win gear, or just kick back and enjoy the party.  The best part is it is all a benefit event to support the Utah Avalanche Center.  All events will be based out of the Millicent base and will be in and around Brighton.
