Smalls to the Wall - Steep Creek Race 2019

 

April 27, 2019 

2019 marks the 6th year of Smalls to the Wall - a steep creek race held at Smalls Falls near Rangeley, ME. Smalls Falls is a rest area with a beautiful steep narrow gorge that is comprised of rock slides and waterfalls. It is a popular spot for whitewater kayakers looking for an action packed day of 'park 'n huck' style paddling. This event is designed to bring all adventure seeking boaters together in a fun filled day of racing and camaraderie! The race is based on a time trial format. 

Racer registration begins at 9:00am, with a race start time of 12:00pm. Racers must have previously run Smalls Falls, or have experience on a similarly difficult section of water. 

Spectators are asked to stay behind the yellow caution tape for their safety, and the safety of our racers.

BANKED SLALOM

Based on the model of the Mount Baker Banked Slalom, the Sugarloaf Banked Slalom is an open-registration event hosted in conjunction with Olympic Gold Medalist and Sugarloafer, Seth Wescott. Featuring a course of banked-turns winding down Sugarloaf's iconic East Coast terrain, the objective is simple: the fastest rider to the bottom wins.

With a new format for 2019, timed racing will only take place on Sunday, March 31st. The course will be open for training runs (registered participants only) on Saturday, March 30th. Training runs will be timed with all results displayed at the Saturday night party located at The Rack BBQ. The 2019 race will also feature chip timing for increased accuracy.

U.S. ALPINE SPEED CHAMPIONSHIPS

Ski racing is in Sugarloaf's DNA, and from the very beginning, the mountain has been the East Coast's premier proving ground for the world's best skiers. As the only East Coast location to ever host a World Cup downhill, and home to Carrabassett Valley Academy, the country's premier ski and snowboard academy, Sugarloaf has produced many of the world's best snowsport athletes, including Bode Miller, Kirsten Clark, Julie Parisien, Sam Morse, Seth Wescott, Alex Tuttle, and many more. We hope you'll join us this winter as the nation's best once again test themselves on the fabled Narrow Gauge trail.

The U.S. Alpine Speed Championships will be held March 16-21 at Sugarloaf. This will be the 7th U.S. National Championship event held at Sugarloaf, but the first official 'Speed Championship', with Downhill, Super-G, and Combined events.

Kennebago River Guided Kayak Trips

The Kennebago River is a very popular, gentle flowing river that offers an excellent opportunity to see moose and eagles, particularly early in the morning.  We will all meet at the Oquossoc Grocery for introductions and payment. You will then follow us in your vehicle to the take-out location (3 miles), where you will leave your vehicle.  We will shuttle you in our vehicle to “Steep Bank Pool” where we will launch our kayaks.  [Note: there is an out-house at the launch site].

Once underway, we will enjoy a slow paddle down the meandering river, through a few sets of ripples, and glide over the beautiful, deep pools that hold native brook trout.  We will also paddle over gravel river beds where the brook trout spawn each fall.  There are two “oxbows” in the river that are excellent locations to spot our State animal, the Maine moose.  We will have a thorough discussion on the moose, its habits and habitat. As with all our trips, questions are encouraged! Depending on the flow of the water and experience level of the paddlers, we will enjoy a 2 – 2½ hour paddle to the take-out location where your car will be parked.  You can then leave your kayak, get into your car and head home – no hassle, no post-paddle worries.  The mid-summer water levels can be low and may require a drag across some gravel beds so bring water shoes.
