I received an email from our buddy Brian Edmiston this morning asking for help with this year’s COSMIC Snowmass Winter Wild Race. This is an awesome race that I encourage everyone to participate in either by racing or volunteering. Please see Brian’s email below and come out to join us on February 21st!
Hey, sorry about the group email but I am trying to recruit volunteers or participants for the third COSMIC race at Snowmass on Saturday February 21st. For course details go to cosmicski.com. We need about 8 volunteers total and currently have about three. Here is the deal: Volunteers will be stationed at transition areas or tricky navigation zones to assist with encouraging racers, giving transition advice, assisting with staying on course, accounting for racers, helping injured racers, etc. You do not need AT gear. You will need extremely warm clothes. You will have a snowmobile drop you off at your spot or can skin if desired. Need to be ready to go by 630 am at Fanny Hill. Race starts at 700 am. Most volunteers will be done by 900am or 1000 am. I need 1 or two volunteers that are BC/Avy savvy that will be stationed at the cliff/avy zone along the snowmass/buttermilk ridge and would be willing to run sweep after the final racer and could also pick up flags or possibly anything that was dropped. So why would you want to do this? Volunteers get a 4 mountain lift ticket for that day, an additional lift ticket for any other day, a cool piece of swag like a hat or polypro top, spectate a really cool event and get to see the top rando racers. If you don't want to volunteer, then race it! Thanks for taking the time to consider this and please forward as appropriate. BTown
