Skiers from around the world are expected to compete Saturday in the 11th annual Wasatch Powder Keg race at Brighton Resort.
The mountaineering race requires competitors to ski up and down various aspects of the Big Cottonwood Canyon resort, starting at 7:30 a.m. at the base of Mt. Millicent.
Elite and heavy-metal division racers will cover about 11.5 miles in six climbs that add up to 6,500 vertical feet. The course goes up Clayton Peak, over to Prescott Peak, down to the base, back up to a point high on Mt. Millicent and then down to the finish line near Millie's Chalet.
