SSWSC Murphy Roberts Holiday Classic

last year’s information is below. Please check back for December 2020’s event.

Top club and collegiate racers compete on one of the toughest slalom hills in the country at Howelsen Hill in the Murphy Roberts Holiday Classic. This marquee race was renamed in honor of Murphy Roberts, a former SSWSC alpine athlete who passed away unexpectedly in 2016 at the age of 22. The race attracts a strong national field and a crowd that typically only graces European competitions at this level. With $4,000 going to the winner in this year’s night event, the stakes are high and the racers are fast!
