This year's event: saturday march 19, 2016 at powder mountain, ut
The Wasatch Showdown is an annual fundraiser that allows fellow firefighters, ski/snowboarders, and especially the general public a chance to honor fallen wildland firefighters. This event involves a ski/snowboard scavenger hunt, music, BBQ, a large item raffle, silent auction, and after party. Teams of 2 or more are given name tags indicating their unique team name and a map with designated checkpoints. All members of the team must locate and "check in" with a Wasatch Showdown volunteer at each checkpoint. Once the team has visited every checkpoint on the map, all members must cross the finish line. Awards are given to the top 3 winning teams.
A couple new things being introduced to this year's event: live music and a poker run during the race for additional prizes.
All proceeds of the event go directly to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF).
