What is the King of the Hill?

King of the Hill is an uphill/downhill race where participants choose any non-motorized, non-wheeled winter gear to race uphill and downhill sections of the course. Snowshoes, alpine, xc, telemark or randonee skis and bindings, snowboards, climbing skins are all permitted.

Participants must carry all their gear from start to finish. A Le Mans start will have participants run ten yards in their boots to strap into their waiting gear of choice. All ages and abilities are welcome.

Begin at Ivan’s; the course heads toward the yellow lift, up Chicken’s Choice, down Sally’s Alley, past the red lift, up River Run, up Village Way, and down Queen’s Corner and Belle’s Bottom back to the start line.
