2015 Nordic United CROWBAR backcountry ski race scheduled

Mark those calendars because the sixth skiing of the Nordic United CROWBAR will take place Saturday, January 31, 2015. This event usually pits the most serious of endurance athletes against one another while the rest of northern Utah's backcountry skiing/splitboarding community less gracefully skins, sweats and skis through one of two courses in the lovely Bear River Mountains. It's a great tune-up race for the Wasatch Powderkeg or a just fun day to have friends put their money where their mouths are regarding the fastest gal or guy in the skin track.

Full details will begin to gel as the season turns to fall, but for now, remember January 31st is the big day. Previous courses, results and photos can all be found at the Nordic United race page: http://crowbarskirace.org

Here's a quick video from last year's race:
