Time to sign up for Sun Valley Town Series

Cozy ski racing fun begins Jan. 25

     It’s here again! Teams are signing up for the 21st annual Sun Valley Town Series of Wednesday team ski races on Baldy’s Cozy ski run.

     Alpine team racing starts Wednesday, Jan. 25 and lasts through March 21. Each Wednesday race begins at 11 a.m. on Cozy. There is a two-week break during the Presidents’ Day holiday—with no racing Feb. 22 and 29.

     Town Series sponsors are Sun Valley Resort and Watkins Distributing.

     Mike Wrobel of the Sun Valley Race Department said racers should sign up promptly 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 Casino Dancing Bears featuring Neil Jessen, Kevin Doyle, Paige Griffith and Franny Hjort. They finished ahead of Sofa Kings and third-place Tekasoreasses.

     Winners of the four free Sun Valley ski passes last year Neil Jessen and Paige Griffith of Casino Dancing Bears, Cameron Fraser of Scums of the Pioneers, and Lenny Joseph of Sofa Kings.

     Dates for the 2012 series of dual modified giant slalom races (with that day’s party locations in parentheses) are:

     Jan. 25 (Apple’s), Feb. 1 (Mahoney’s in Bellevue), Feb. 8 (Cornerstone), Feb. 15 (McClain’s in Hailey), March 7 (Lefty’s Bar & Grill), March 14 (Fresshie’s in Hailey) and March 21 (Whiskey Jacques).

     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 Valley 2012-13 season ski passes. That drawing takes place at the Town Series finale March 21 at Whiskey Jacques in Ketchum.

     Team cost is the same as last year, $360. Telemarkers, snowboarders and downhillers are welcome.

     Format is fastest single runs on five of the seven Wednesdays, and combined two runs on Feb. 15 and March 21. Call 622-6356 to sign up, or email
