Hi There! You may (or may not) remember that we had some officer elections earlier this year. We'll do some full introductions as the season progresses, but to start off meet Steffie, the newly elected President (and newsletter writer now awkwardly writing in the 3rd person). She moved to Salt Lake City in January, 2014 (from Vermont via Boulder, CO) lugging around a 10 lb ski touring set up. She started doing the Tuesday night race series during the 14-15 season, and has been counting grams and helping out with Utah Skimo ever since. If you see her out and about in the Wasatch say Hi!
Race Suits!  We asked you if you were interested in Utah Skimo race suits and you responded with a resounding YES! So, here's the deal. The suits are 2-piece from Ski Trab and done  with Suits can be ordered two ways:
1) on the website.
2) With a Premier Utah Skimo Membership. Buy the membership here and leave a comment with what size suit you want
There is a pre-order discount if you order the suit before Wednesday, November 1st- the listed price will go up after October 31st and sizes will be limited so order soon! You can try on the one piece version at (you will want to size up-Steffie, who is 5' 8", 135 lbs and generally wears a women's medium fit the medium). If all goes well, suits should be here sometime in the middle of December. We also have new membership tiers this year that includes a suit. See updated members info below. 
Memberships! We are trying something new with the memberships this year and have 3 tiers to choose from:
  • Basic: $55: Wasatch Citizen Night race series (8 races) entry, plus a Utah Skimo Buff
  • Standard: $75: Wasatch Citizen Night race series (8 races) entry, Utah Skimo Buff, Utah Skimo Hydoflask Bottle
  • Premier: $350: Wasatch Citizen Night race series (8 races) entry, Utah Skimo Buff, Utah Skimo Hydoflask Bottle, Utah Skimo Race Suit*
Some of you may have noticed that membership for just races went up $10. That's because we've added a new race venue- Solitude Mountain Resort! The last 2 races of the season (January 30th and February 13th) will be hosted by Solutide! We still need to update the website with the new membership details so we're not *quite* ready to start selling memberships but we will let you know as soon as we are!

*If you are interested in this option, reply to this ASAP with what size suit you want so we can make sure you get the right size
Water Bottles! Wait, did some of the memberships include a Utah Skimo Hydroflask Bottle?! Why yes, yes they did. And here is what those bottles look like. They are also available for individual sale and coming to the Utah Skimo website soon(they would make a great gift with the holidays coming up).
Facebook group! We started a public Facebook group called Utah Skimo- check it out!. It's a great place to find training partners, carpool to races, and just ask any skimo related questions!
Races! The first race is a month away. The annual Skin Turkey race will start the season off on Thanksgiving morning. We also always need help setting up the race courses and checking racers in- we'll be sending out a link to sign up to volunteer (yeah, we got a lot of updating and link sending to do-the weather's just been too nice lately to sit in front of a computer!). No experience necessary to help out at the races- if you can skin (at any speed!) and/or hit a button on an I-pad we could use you!
