Snowbird Ski Resort is one of steepest, most vertical ski resorts in Utah. Home of 2 or 3 hillclimb races and also serves as the decisive stage in the " Tour of Utah". This course often receives less of a turn out because of it's difficulty in climbing and hazardous descents. Of course that would make it ideal for me. I won this course last year by 4 minutes. It was not to be this year as Bob Saffel showed us how fast we needed to go and in doing so put me and him 4 minutes or more on third place. Happy to be in one piece.

One of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the rockies held host to the 7th round of the series. Lots of single track, including muddy planks, boulder gardens, steep pitches. Many including myself missed a turn and lost more than a few seconds. My camera does no justice to the beautiful things it missed.
