Dutton Uphill raises $4,000 for Far West Nordic

The 19th annual Billy Dutton Uphill on March 30 raised $4,000 dollars to help fund the 34 Far West Nordic athletes who competed in the Junior Olympics in Anchorage, Alaska, last month.

This year more than 130 hearty folks skied, snowshoed or ran from the bottom of Squaw Valley to High Camp for the benefit event, making it one of the largest turnouts in its history.

It’s not easy, as the course sends participants more than 2,000 vertical feet in just over 3 miles. Terray Sylvester was the first to cross the finish, coming in with a time of 38 minutes, 39 seconds. Rory Bosio was the top woman, finishing in 47:34.

After the climb, a rousing awards ceremony and party at High Camp rewarded the racers.

The Dutton and Rassuchine families again did all the organizing for the event.
