'All systems are go' for Hill Climb

(Jackson, Wyo.) - After a year hiatus due to weather, the Snow Devils are officially planning the 40th Annual World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb for March 24-27. Managed by the Jackson Hole Snow Devils Hill Climb, the four-day affair attracts thousands of visitors. Warm February temperatures raised some concerns that the Hill Climb could be affected. Community partners met on Friday, February 26 to discuss plans for the Hill Climb and determined that, unless temperatures get far warmer, “all systems are go” for the Hill Climb to occur this year. According to a release issued last week, the Snow Devils, Bridger-Teton National Forest, and Snow King are collaborating to develop contingency plans to ensure that the event will take place even if the weather doesn’t cooperate. “We applaud the Snow Devils, Bridger-Teton National Forest, and Snow King for committing to ensure the Hill Climb can happen this year,” said Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) President/CEO Jeff Golightly. “The Snow Devils is a completely volunteer group. We have 100 dedicated members that take time off of work and take time out of their days year round to make Hill Climb happen. They do it because they believe in our cause and they love this town. Any support that we can get from the local businesses to make this event grow stronger is going to benefit the entire community,” said Snow Devils President Jeff Toolson. *Feature Photo: h/t Clayton Tanner / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news #whatshappening
