Sunday’s not-so-beautiful weather didn’t prevent a bunch of telemarkers clad in luau party costumes from celebrating the 2002 Hawaiian National Telemark races on Baldy.

The Sun Valley Race Department set a lovely, fast race course for the many competitors who attended in their gallant granola garb. All the natives had a fun time.
