Welcome

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.

Join Utah's annual backcountry celebration!

Updates for 2022

For 2022 we are adding chip timing and real-time results!

Packet pickup will be Friday night before the race - there will be no day-of pickup!

The Powderkeg is a USSMA sanctioned race, and will be the 2022 Youth National Championship race for U20, U18, U16, and U14. It is also part of the 2022 National Cup for Open, Masters and U23 divisions.

The Powderkeg would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors!
