SKYWAY, JAN. 24, 2015

Skating was the name of the game on the fast, hard-packed undulating course of the Skyway Skuffle 10K. Conditions were ripe for fast times although talent and training might have had a bit to do with it, too. Barkley Robinson turned in a smoking 30:20 winning time in the little-bit-longer-than-10K 10K. Christie Aschwanden showed up just before race time and missed her warm-up but still was first woman and 4th overall in 35:52. There was a Kids 3K as well dominated by young Altan Brown skating in ahead of the other kids by over 10 minutes. Being named after the Alta ski area means he’s got skiing in his blood and it showed. There were some kids, though, that showed moxy and stamina by jumping into the 10K. Just 14 years old, Addison Livingston had a great sprint finish in the 10K and nipped the always speedy Sara Ballantyne for 5th overall at the line. Congratulations to everyone for taking the challenge and skiing hard to completion!

As always, sponsors and volunteers were essential. Thanks again to KIND Bar and PROBAR for providing energy, Summit Canyon Mountaineering and Board and Buckle for prizes, and Lori Stone, Trish Rothwell, Sid and ?? (yes, I’m old and forgetful) for their great help timing and serving. And whoever is in charge of the weather, thanks for the warm race-day sunshine, but now we’d like to order some more snow, please. Whatever, we’re just happy to be skiing on the beautiful Grand Mesa!
