Resort Crawl: A Race Against Time Written by Mike.S on March 21st, 2012

SkiUtah Group Skis Every Ski Resort in Utah State
City folk (especially here in Portland) love their pub crawls. With more Micro Breweries per capita than any other city in the USA, Portland lends itself to the idea. But in Utah, the accessibility of ski resorts lent its hand to a group of skiers and snowboarders for a different type of crawl, a crawl that set a record pace to cover a far greater area than modest Portland, Oregon, and it also raised funds for the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In association with Ski Utah, 14 skiers and snowboarders set out from Brain Head Resort at 3am the morning of March 15th, in an attempt to ski every resort (14 in total) in the state of Utah. This was no “get on you bikes and ride” kind of crawl witch usually results to eyelids half cocked and slurred speech by nights end; no this took the efforts and determination of Ski Utah, Canyon Transportation and the 14 individuals who heeded a noble cause. The group concluded their successful mission at approximately 7:45pm at Beaver Mountain Resort. Although there is no account of whether or not the group partook in pub festivities upon mission fruition, one can assume that they tipped their glasses to victory! If not then let us all raise our glasses to: Jim Schulte, Steven Aderholt, Mike Tonneson, Jack Amiel, Ken Jacquin, Vanessa Pierce, Ryan Patano, Jessica Kunzer, Norm Slauenwhite, Jeff Whiting, ‘Powderhound’ Cat Killfoil, Mike Bova, Michael Pantzer and Chris Pearson, the noble group that skied the whole of Utah for a far greater purpose than just to have fun. Cheers!
