Nestled at the foot of Loafer Mountain is a community comprised of anything but loafers. People living here enjoy all the extremes of life, from the extreme peace of the quiet wooded mountain to the extreme levels of snowfall (over 150 per year) and wildlife including bear, deer, elk, coyotes, fox, wild turkeys and an occasional cougar.
Your race starts at the base of this mountain. Whether running, or biking, your path will elevate quickly (1100-1300 foot gain). Then you will trade for snowshoes, and follow the switchbacks cut into the mountain by an old prospector named Shocky, complete with an authentic mine shaft. You will traverse Loafer Mountain (gaining another 1110 feet), ending about 1/4 of the way up with Utah Valley laid out before you. As you experience the breathtaking views (literally), youll quickly find out why were the best kept secret in the Valley.
We hope youll join us. Your registration fee includes a couple of things to remember the day - an original (and soon to be coveted) Yeti Tshirt and a car sticker. Awards will be given to the top Yeti finishers.
All proceeds will go to:
Woodland Hills Fire department
