The Whitefish Whiteout is a backcountry ski mountaineering race not for the feint of heart and definitely not for the weak of legs. The event starts with competitors skinning up from the bottom of the hill and then skiing back down, either on a 2,000 vertical foot recreational course or a 4,000 vertical foot race course. Note that some competitors make it to the top in less than a half-hour. That's just wrong. Check out skiwhitefish.com and check under "Events."
