by Jackson Hole Radio News

Registration for the 2021 Karen Oatey Pole Pedal Paddle ends at 5:00 pm Wednesday. Entrants may choose whether to race individually, or on a team, and competitively or for fun. Volunteer positions are available.Pole Pedal Paddle is a five-leg race that starts on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and finishes at Astoria Hot Springs Park in Snake River Canyon.

The race, where contestants compete either individually or in teams, consists of an alpine ski/snowboard leg, a short running leg, a cross-country ski leg, a bicycle leg, and a boating leg. The PPP is the third and final event in Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club’s Triple Crown Series and is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year.

Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club is the town of Jackson’s oldest non-profit, and is dedicated to providing attainable alpine, Nordic, and freeride programs to Jackson’s youth. The 46th annual PPP takes place Saturday, culminating at Astoria Hot Springs Park for the annual post-event celebration open to the community.
