Uphill Bonanza Benefits Lyndon Outing Club

Under a beautiful blue sky, race organizer Jesse Holden gave his final instructions to the 70 skiers and hikers lined up at the start of the LOC 6 Hour Uphill Bonanza at the Lyndon Outing Club (LOC) on Saturday morning. For six hours, as teams or individuals, the competitors made as many laps as possible from the bottom of the mountain to the top and back. As Jesse wrote in an email to the participants Saturday night, "We did hundreds of laps and racked a ridiculous amount of vert along the way!"
