    MSLA Telemark Challenge Seed Race

    Thursday, January 29th, 2015, 7:00 PM @ Snowbowl

    Cost: TBD

    This fun series consists of six evening dual slalom tele races held at Missoula’s Montana Snowbowl.  Races take place each Thursday night at 7pm, registration from 6:00-6:45, starting with the “seed race” event on January29th.  The final race and award party will be held at 6pm on Saturday March 7th. Please read the Updated Rules and Regulations

    Each evening race consists of two dual slalom runs. Racers are paired based on their fastest, most recent single times. Team points are awarded each week based on the combined finish times in each pairing.  World Cup Points are also awarded each week for the 10 fastest individual men and women.  Final team and individual awards are given out at the final race party, along with awards for best individual and team costumes.

    The Telemark races are great for skiers of all ability levels and are perfect for improving skiing skills.

    Each Team is composed of 4 racers: at least one female, one beginner, one intermediate, and one advanced skier, each team may also register two substitute racers.  Most teams find a local sponsor to donate all or part of the $390.00 team entry fee. All lift tickets will be included in the entry fee.

    Skiers also have the option of registering as a “Hired Gun”.  Hired guns may race each week for individual points, and will hopefully also be used as substitutes for teams that are missing a racer and can’t field a full team.   The Registration fee for a Hired Gun is $85.

    The series is limited to the first 20 teams to pre register and pay.

    Rocky Mountaineers Featuring Daphne Herling

    Tuesday, February 10th, 2015, 7 PM @ The Trail Head

    Rocky Mountaineers Featuring Daphne Herling

    GATES OF THE ARTIC in the Footsteps of Bob Marshall

    Steve Seninger and Daphne Herling’s memorable trip in Alaska’s Brooks Range, August 2014

    Led by Bill and Bryn Cunningham, of High Country Adventures, starting from the north slope of the Brooks Range and crossing the Rocky Mountain’s northernmost continental divided (Ernie’s Pass) we backpacked 70 miles and then paddled 120 miles down the North Fork of the Koyukuk River. Our backpack route followed much of Bob Marshall’s 1929 exploratory trip into the Gates of the Arctic area. Our trip was a remarkable way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness Act and to experience the mountains, tundra, and rivers that Bob Marshall explored and loved in this remote, wild landscape.
