About the Event: When Olympian Ryan Hall began his journey as a runner, it all started here. Ryan grew up just 5 minutes away from Snow Summit where his weekly cross country training sessions included a 1-mile timed run up "The Wall" - one of Snow Summit's double black diamond ski runs. Today, the high school cross country team still utilizes this course every summer for their training, hoping to reach the heights Ryan Hall established. Three State Champions later...it seems to be working!
