Wax em up
for the Soldier
Mountain downhills

When most of us head downhill fast, it is usually unintentional.

Next week, people can fulfill their need for speed at a series of downhill races at Soldier Mountain near Fairfield, the Sammis-Camas Cup and the Soldier Mountain downhills.

Co-race director Scott Curtis remarked, "Its been a phenomenal snow year and the snow pack is great. We are going off the old track the Easter Bump."

The faster racers, like last years Sammis-Camas champions Skip Merrick and Tracy Chubb, usually complete the course in 1 minute and 20 seconds.

"Its a great locals race. We want everyone to show up," Curtis said. "The Town Series racers are off for a couple of weeks so we want those guys to be there."

Curtis and Kenny Corrock will conduct a downhill training camp on Monday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m.

"All abilities are welcome," Curtis said.

On Tuesday, Feb. 10, the annual Sammis-Camas downhill will be run at noon with a training run at 10 a.m. Proceeds from the Sammis-Camas Cup will be donated to a racer on the Hailey Ski Team.

A pair of Intermountain Masters downhills will be run at 10 a.m. and noon on Wednesday, Feb. 11.

Ski Tek and the Sun Valley Ski Club sponsor the race series.
