***** CROWBAR 2020 is CANCELED *****
Unfortunately, due to the combination of high winds/drifting snow, the all-day closure of Hwy 89, avalanches in Logan Canyon, and HIGH avalanche danger, the CROWBAR committee has decided to cancel this year's ski race. We will be sending an email out to inform all race participants. Cancelling the race is not a decision we take lightly and the safety of all racers and volunteers is our primary concern. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility in this matter. Please spread to the word to anyone who might have been planning to attend. We sincerely hope to see you at next year's CROWBAR!
