The Helly Hansen Big Mountain Battle is Back Saturday!
— Posted by Samantha on February 25, 2013
The Big Mountain Battle is back, and it's bigger than ever!
Well, the mountain is the same size. But the race is new, improved and challenging for adults and kids alike! The Big Mountain Battle, sponsored by Helly Hansen, is a series of battles across the continent, giving guests the opportunity to participate in an on-mountain scavenger hunt.
Here at Park City Mountain Resort, we have an advanced and an intermediate course, and three different categories for participation: Advanced, Intermediate or 12 and under. The event is simple: grab a partner, register in your category, get your course planned out, compete on March 2, and make it back the fastest. It seems simple, until you see the checkpoints. Starting at the Loren Larsen Park at 10:30 a.m. and finishing at the Environmental Kiosk, this thing covers a whole lot of mountain!
Check this video featuring Tim, my ski patroller friend who designed the course. Get excited, and get registered at bigmountainbattle.com.
