Snowy day a challenge for 719 Boulder finishers
Just one year ago, after winning the Boulder, Gregg captured the World Championship bronze medal in 10k freestyle in Sweden.
Nate Struebel of Driggs, Idaho and the Teton Valley Ski Foundation won the Half Boulder in 47:39, and Dartmouth College senior Natalie Flowers of Belgrade, Mt. was the top Half Boulder woman, 52:04.
Ketchum’s Charley French, 90, won his age class and placed 115th overall in the Half Boulder, the 43rd man, in 1.29:55.
Local women on the Full Boulder age-class podium were June Lane, Carol Monteverde, Linda McClatchy, Kim Nalen, Elizabeth Youngman, Deb Cornwell, Muffy Ritz, Liv Jensen, Laura Theis, Mary Rose, Alexa Turzian, Deedra Irwin and Annie Pokorny.
Full Boulder male podium placers from the valley were Del Pletcher, Patrick Simpson, Jon Engen, Bill Nurge, John Reuter, Rogan Brown, Cole Morgan, Sebastian Radl-Jones, Fisher Gardner and Mathias Radl-Jones.
Prize money for the 2017 Boulder Tour was $9,150 with $2,500 going to the male and female winners. Second place finishers earned $1,000 and third placers $500. There was $400 in preem money, plus $750 for male and female winners of five separate waves.
You have to go back to February 1985 to find slower Boulder Tour finishing times, again, because of heavy snow.
That year, the Wood River Valley had near-drought conditions for the month of January and most of December before 20 inches of snow dumped between Thursday and Friday, before the scheduled running of the Boulder Ski Tour.
Moisture content of that 24-hour storm was two-and-a-half inches, matching the normal total of all of February.
Local cross-country skiers comprised most of the Boulder Ski Tour field in those days, compared to all the out-of-town participants today. The first solution that organizers came up with was pushing the race start back one day to Sunday. It enabled groomer Brad Siemer helped by Nordic enthusiasts like John Plummer and Dave Wheelock to work 36 hours clearing the course.
Unfortunately, the most notable American Nordic skier in those days, Bill Koch, had been scheduled to race the Boulder Saturday but had to leave town due to other commitments.
Race day on Sunday dawned very cold (-6 Fahrenheit) but sunny at the Galena Lodge start. Defending men’s champion Dave Bingham won again in a field of 371 skiers. His time of 1.38:58 was nearly seven minutes slower than in 1984.
E.J. Holcomb captured her first of two consecutive Boulder Tour women’s titles that year of the big dump, but her 2.01:50 time was over 14 minutes behind Janet Kellam’s winning time of 1984.
