March 11, 2022
UPDATE: Downhill Canceled for Day 2
Mother nature has graced us with a pow day here in Jackson Hole, which has unfortunately created unsafe conditions for the Downhill.
Racers, fans, supporters, sponsors, and anyone else are invited to join us at 1:30pm in the white Events Tent at the base of JHMR for complimentary Melvin beers & Kate's Real Food Bars, the JHDH raffle, and a very special wrap up presentation.
Reminder: Medicine Wheel Wellness is still offering complimentary body work to all racers until 4pm today. Racers must make an appointment by calling 307-699-7480 or texting 307-264-8043. Also, Spoons food truck is offering 50% off food for all racers.
Thanks to everyone who supported the JHSC's 2022 FCExcavation Jackson Hole Downhill.
LET'S GET WESTERN!
RACE DETAILS & HISTORY
The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club (JHSC) has been hosting one of the few (if not the last!) open, non-sanctioned community downhill races since 1982. In 2020 the JHSC, in collaboration with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, redesigned the entire event to be a high-powered, high-caliber event celebrating the sport and community of alpine racing in Jackson Hole and beyond.
The FCExcavation Jackson Hole Downhill is hosted on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Crags-to-Moran racecourse off Teton Lift. The course runs just outside the boundary of Grand Teton National Park and boasts epic views. The Downhill hosts skiers and snowboarders ages 12 and up as well as current and former World Cup racers. Competitors can compete in up to three of the following categories: Pro, Am, Junior, Snowboard, Telemark, and “Fat & Baggy,” where a racer’s clothes must flap in the wind and their skis must be at least 86mm underfoot.
The Jackson Hole Downhill is open to anyone interested in going fast and offers an equal cash purse for the women’s and men’s pro categories. All proceeds from the Downhill support JHSC’s exceptional programming, and provide opportunities for over 500 local student-athletes.
The FCExcavation Downhill culminates on Sunday with the Pro Race, which includes a high-stakes team component. Each team is led by a “Champion” who has put together their all-star, five-person roster including the following positions. (Each team must include at least one female racer)
“Invited VIP” - Former U.S. Ski Team, World Cup, or another top competitor
“Master” - 50+ (on race day)
“Junior” - U14-U19 aged athlete
“Wildcard 1” - Additional team members of any age or gender
“Wildcard 2” - Additional team members of any age or gender
