Springtime in Parrish

Bumps, SG bring 130 skiers to Baldy

They spread the wealth around and broke ties by arm wrestling last weekend during the friendly, local Baldy competition known the 16th annual Lane Parrish Memorial.

Lane Parrish would have approved. A smooth customer and a Sun Valley persona of the 1970s and 1980s, Parrish was a speed and bump skier and movie stuntman who died much too early at 33 in a plane crash near Twin Falls in 1990.

The Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Freestyle Team and Soldier Mountain Alpine Racing hosted the two-day event. At stake was $5,400 in prize money and a bunch of fun on Easter Weekend 2008.

It was a good turnout of 130 people including 103 in the Parrish super giant slalom.

Prize money of $500 for first place, $250 for second and $150 for third for both men and women went to the winners of "Bumps for Bucks," the New Diamond Sun super giant slalom and the combined winners.

Winners of Saturday's mogul racing contest on Race Arena were Broc Sheue and Debbie Page. They both posted the best scores of the day in both the Parrish bump competition and the "Bumps for Bucks" playoff rounds.

Zac Crist (61.35 seconds) and Soldier Mountain Alpine Racing's Alisa Durkheimer (66.73), a Wood River High senior, were the fastest racers in the Parrish SG. Unfortunately Durkheimer crashed at the finish line and tore her hip flexor muscle, so she didn't run in the "Dash for Cash" Greyhawk finale.

After Sunday's Parrish Memorial first super G run, the "New Diamond Sun Dash for Cash" featured the top 15 men and top five women from the earlier heat. Winners were Nate Schwing (61.18, by .74 seconds over Crist) and Erika Hogan (65.38, by .59 seconds over second-place Daniela Anguita).

Combined winners had the lowest scores when class placings of the Parrish SG and Parrish bumps were added.

Schwing and Kurtis Fieguth tied for first place in men's combined, and Schwing won the arm wrestling tiebreaker. In third place was Broc Sheue. Top three women in combined were winner Erika Hogan, Calley Brown and Sarah Mazzola.

Organizers thanked all the volunteers plus the following sponsors: Scott, Ciro, The Cellar, Big Wood, Surefoot, Tully's, Lefty's, Irvings Red Hots, Pioneer, Whiskeys, Sturtevants, Smoky Mountain Pizza, K2, Smith, Sun Summit, KB's and Paul Kenny's.
