After an avalanche in Grover Park damaged the planned Afton Simplot Hill Climb location, race organizers and elected officials have been attempting to find a new suitable location in time for riders to still compete.
According to organizers, the event will now take place at the Pine Creek Ski Area just outside of Cokeville on Saturday March 1 & Sunday March 2 as a two-day event rather than the traditional three days.
The original venue at Grover Park was hit by an avalanche over the weekend, rendering the hill unusable for the event.
Organizers are requesting volunteers to help with the Afton-Simplot Hill Climb for various duties at Pine Creek. To sign up or for more information, contact Steve Rich at 307-248-0427.
