Despite the spring melt-off, the nordic leg of the Pole Pedal Paddle appears to be intact heading into Saturday’s race.
Carrie Boynton, Jackson Hole Ski Club director, says organizers are making every effort to retain the cross-country 10-k at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
“There are a few holes, but otherwise it looks good,” Boynton said of the course.
So, too, does the weather forecast for the week, calling for a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures in the high 40s and low 50s — a far cry from the frigid and downright blizzard conditions competitors have endured in recent years. Roads are dry, and the flow of the Snake River is up slightly.
Today is the deadline to sign up for the 37th annual PPP without paying a $15 late fee. The club has mulled relaxing the late fees, but it helps organizers to know in advance how many participants to expect, Boynton said. Fun class registration is likely to be up this year, with reduced entry fees and Snake River Brewing Co. offering a $250 party to the team judged to have the most spirit.
