The 36th Annual Fish Creek Excavation Town Downhill - Mini Hahnenkamm will take place in Teton Village for the first time ever.  There was simply not enough natural snow on the race venue at Snow King Mountain to hold the downhill this year.  JHSC is excited and grateful that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has offered to host this iconic event.  On March 10 & 11 the race will take place on the downhill-homologated Crags to Moran race course and finish just above the base of the Teton Lift.

We are also excited to announce we have changed the "Open Pro" division to a Men's Pro division and will be awarding equal prize money to both men's and women's pro division winners: 1st- $1000, 2nd- $500, 3rd- $250.  Over $10,000 total in cash and prizes!  

Keep in mind that if Snow King is successful with their proposed Phase 2 developments, there will be snow making capacity on the upper mountain guaranteeing optimal race & training conditions all season long.
