Town Series on Baldy debuts Jan. 19

Seven weeks of Cozy fun

Teams are signing up for the 20th annual Sun Valley Town Series of Wednesday team races on Baldy's Cozy ski run.

Alpine team racing starts Wednesday, Jan. 19 and last through March 23. Each Wednesday race begins at 11 a.m. on Cozy. Town Series sponsors are Sun Valley Co. and Watkins Distributing.

Sun Valley Race Department said racers should sign up at the Warm Springs Lodge Desk. Up to 300 racers on four-member teams enjoy the seven-week racing series each year.

Last year's Town Series champion was Scott USA fea-turing John Zuck, John Reagle, Toby Arnett and Jeff Page. They finished ahead of Casino Dancing Bears and third-place Wood River Masonry.

Winners of the four free Sun Valley ski passes last year were Franny Hjort, Will Roth, Arnett and Jason Haase.

Dates for the series of dual modified giant slalom races (with party locations in paren-theses) are Jan. 19 (Apple's), Feb. 2 (McClain's in Hailey), Feb. 9 (Cornerstone), Feb. 16 (Casino), March 2 (Whiskey Jacques), March 16 (Lefty's) and March 23 (Warm Springs Lodge to celebrate the 75th).

The names of 20 racers from the top five teams in the series are entered into a drawing for the grand prize of four Sun Val-ley 2011-12 season ski passes. That drawing takes place at the Town Series finale March 23 in Warm Springs Lodge.

Team cost is the same as last year, $360. Telemarkers, snow-boarders and downhillers are welcome. Format is fastest sin-gle runs on five of the seven Wednesdays, and combined two runs on Feb. 16 and March 23. Call 622-6356 to sign up.
