Prarie Creek Classic

Last Saturday I headed up to Sun Valley with my family to race the Prarie Creek Classic. The course goes up, and then back down, the Prarie Creek drainage about 20 minutes north of Ketchum. The dual start format was sweet because I got to start with my brother and it put a lot of people out there at the same time. It was a blast flying around two laps of 7.5 k with my bro, passing master blasters right and left. I ended up getting beat by one of them though: Eric Jensen of Idaho Nordic. He got me by one second to claim the final podium spot behind two U of Utah skiers. The snow was perfect – which is hard to believe since Ketchum has almost nothing and Boise is dry. Getting pumped for the Boulder Mountain Tour next month on those same trails!

About Wyatt

Hi. I live in Reno, NV and just completed my masters degree in hydrology at the UNR graduate school. I competed in three NCAA skiing championships for Colby College from 2008 to 2011, where I majored in geology. Originally from Boise, Idaho, I’m pumped to be skiing and racing in the Sierras. I like mountain biking, running, eating salmon, walking on my hands, dumpster-diving, and playing guitar.
