About the Race

This race features 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 substantial prize money on the line, the stakes are high and the racers are fast!

Curious who has taken home the historic prize purses and shown their prowess as skiers in the past? View a list of winners here.
