The Boulder Mountain Tour, a cross country ski race run annually on the Harriman Trail since 1973, is all about giving back. The BMT’s current cause is SVSEF’s Gold Team, comprised of six elite cross country racers, including Kevin Bolger, who just completed his inaugural season with the U.S. Ski Team and was nominated to the 2019-2020 Cross Country B Team. Also on the squad; 2019 Zions Bank Boulder Mountain Tour champion Peter Holmes, Adam Luban, Katie Feldman (second in the 2019 BMT), Maddie Morgan, and Cate Brams. The team is coached by Chris Mallory.
To help defray the costs of the Gold Team’s training camp in Bend, Oregon, at the end of May, the BMT is donating its share of proceeds from the official event poster to the squad. Hand-drawn and screen printed by local artist Jack Weekes of Type B Laboratories, the poster depicts Jon Engen charging down the Harriman Trail with the Boulder Mountains in the background. 30 out of 75 limited-edition prints remain at Independent Goods, located at 330 Walnut Avenue in Ketchum. The poster – which is $75 – is also available online at https://independentgoods.com.
Thank you to the Boulder Mountain Tour for their constant support of this community!
