Hosted by Brighton Ski Resort
Powderkeg logo


The Wasatch Powderkeg is a backcountry ski race in the heart of the central Wasatch mountains, just outside of Salt Lake City.

Racers will test their endurance and skill as they ascend and descend the mountains around Brighton Ski Resort, all the while taking in the views of the Heber Valley, Mt Nebo, Mt Timpanogos, and the Cottonwood Canyons.

Don't own spandex? That's ok -- the Powderkeg celebrates those that love the backcountry by offering shorter recreational and youth divisions.

Each racer will receive an entry into our legendary raffle, which is made possible by our awesome sponsors.

The Powderkeg is a USSMA sanctioned race, and will be the Youth National Championship race for U18, U16, and U14. It is also part of the National Cup for Open, Masters, U23 and U20 divisions.

Join Utah's annual backcountry celebration!
