Vail Uphill at the Winter Mountain Games

In 2012, Vail began holding a Winter Mountain Games to balance the excellent summer Teva Games Event. The second year of the festival brought more excellent competition and a fun atmosphere.

I missed the snowshoe race on Friday due to work and was fired up for the Vail Uphill, which gains about 2,400' in a shot straight up the ski slopes, today.  Competitors can use any means desired, and athletes today used running shoes, snowshoes, skis with climbing skins, and hiking boots.

It was a great race, and I was happy to finish 2nd.  Hats off to Josiah for the win and for John Tribbia and Brian Smith for a great race all the way to the line.
