Hogadon Held First Collegiate Event Since 1992

CASPER, Wyo. High winds and cool temperatures didn't stop hundreds of college athletes from hitting the slopes at Hogadon.

Events included alpine skiing, cross country skiing, and snowboarding.

This years event is significant for organizers.

"We hosted collegiate events back in the nineties. So I don't think we've had a collegiate event here since 1992." Said Patrick Begley.

With 27 years between events, organizers made sure the course was ready for the athletes.

Though the weather made things difficult, there weren't any major issues for athletes.

"We've had a lot of snow up here, which is really great for the mountain and for skiing in general. But it's really soft, so we're having to constantly monitor to try and fix where we're running into soft spots on the course." Said Adam Studer.

Organizers say everything went according to plan this weekend.

"I think that's what this mountain is about is ski racing. We love ski racing and have a long lineage of ski racers for 60 years with the Casper Mountain Racers. And it's our greatest honor to have these people here and keep them coming back."

They hope to host more college events in the future.
