Billy Dutton Uphill!!

The Billy Dutton was what it always is: HARD. No getting around that. Ton’s of fun and some interesting techniques employed: skate, classic, running, tandem skiing (2nd annual tandem champs = Gus and Johannes!). I was able to claim the victory by a few minutes over Franz and Spencer. Hard snow this year made it faster than normal. Thanks to Squaw Valley as well for pulling off an improbably clean and well-covered trail with nearly no snow on the lower slopes.

Thanks to all the great Far West volunteers, racers, coaches, and parents for a great event and outstanding support of the Elite Team all season. Next year we will have tons of snow, I promise!
