Course Overview

If you’ve been doing the whole I-Cup Series this year, you know we’ve been able to host races at some amazing venues in 2017, from St. George to North Fork Park, the series has seen challenging and fun courses across the state. For the final round of the series though, we might have just saved the best for last with the first ever I-Cup round at Powder mountain. This race is sure to offer up a thrilling finale to the 2017 series, and help to crown worthy champions of the series overall titles. The trail network at Powder Mountain offers up some amazing riding with the most 360 degree panoramic views to be found anywhere on the bike, and since the race basically starts almost atop the mountain at 8200ft with a max elevation of apx. 8900ft, the course is rolling and fast throughout. The I-Cup course is going to take you on an all-encompassing 15-mile lap of this trail network as you circumvent the top ridgeline of the ski area. The full-distance lap (there will be a short course for JH Boys, JV Girls, JH Girls and Novice Men’s and Women’s categories) will feature apx. 2000ft. of climbing starting from the Timberline Lodge where parking and the start/finish will be located.
