Formula Sports Skoch Cup returns to Baldy

Timmons Memorial SG is Friday

     Sponsored by Bob Gordon’s Formula Sports, the 17th annual Skoch Cup Intermountain/Northern Division Masters alpine races are back on Baldy for three days Friday through Sunday, Jan. 17-19.

     The Skoch Cup features super giant slalom, giant slalom and slalom racing for those 18-and-under.

     Advance registration is available at, or from 7:30-9 a.m. on race day at Warm Springs Lodge. More than 60 racers have already registered, organizers said.

     Sun Valley’s stop on the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) Intermountain Masters 2013-14 circuit kicks off with two SG runs Friday on Warm Springs.

     They are set for 10:15 a.m. and noon. Cost is $40 before Jan. 16 at 6 p.m., or $50 after. The SG awards and social hour will occur at 3 p.m. at Apple’s Bar & Grill, followed by a potluck dinner.

     Friday’s super giant slalom, now called the Timmons Memorial, has been named in memory of Gene Timmons.

     The well-known Intermountain Masters ski racer died March 15, 2012 at 67. A member of the Weber State University ski team, Timmons became a Vietnam War aviator for the U.S. military and had a long career as a commercial pilot.

     Skoch Cup technical races on Warm Springs begin Saturday with a two-run giant slalom Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Saturday’s 6 p.m. awards party will take place at Carol’s Dollar Mountain Lodge.

     The slalom is Sunday at 10 a.m. to wrap up the weekend. Awards occur after the second run at Warm Springs.

     As always, the Sun Valley Ski Club is helping organize the weekend race series.

     In fact, Kirstin Kozlowski of the ski club said that Sun Valley has recently been named as the host site of the 2015 USSA Masters Nationals racing series—a prestigious event last held here in 2010.

     Next on the SVSC calendar is the Leif’s Combined Race Feb. 8 followed by a club GS on Feb. 16. Visit for details about the Baldy Cup Series of SVSC races in 2014.
