Are YOU Tough Enough for The Billy Dutton Uphill?

 

Once a year, Squaw Valley USA hosts a very special event: participants start at the base of KT-22 and go UP the Mountain Run to High Camp. Ski it, skin it, run it, snowshoe or hike, whatever works for you (sorry, no motors or jet packs).
The Billy Dutton Uphill is a unique race with a tough 2000 ft. of climbing over the 3.2 mile course. A fun challenge for recreational athletes, runners, snowshoers, XC and backcountry skiers, or anyone who loves a good climb. Come and test yourself in this beautiful mountain setting!

UPHILL SKIERS, RUNNERS, AND SHOWSHOERS

Billy was an athlete with extraordinary endurance, equally famous for his great smile as he was for his daily (!) routine of skiing UP the Mountain Run on classic skis. As one of the founders of Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue, Billy's legacy lives on today. The Billy Dutton Uphill commemorates Billy's life and his many contributions to our community.

Squaw Valley's original "run what ya brung" uphill race, an answer to the famous Chinese Downhill of the 70's, starts at the base of KT-22. The course takes you UP the Mountain Run, then over to the top of Shirley Lake and finally ends after a brief downhill at High Camp. The course climbs 2000 vertical feet over 3.2 miles. There are ski and run/snowshoe divisions.

All proceeds from the Billy Dutton Uphill go to benefit Far West Nordic's juniors program.
