Before summer’s gone, take in a nice mountain ride to benefit the nonprofit National Ability Center in Park City this weekend. If you’re anxious for winter time, then strap on some ski boots and take part in the Skootch n’ Dash ski boot race this weekend. For the political junkie, get ready for the next legislative session by checking out a University of Utah forum on lobbying Capitol Hill.

Summit Challenge
Saturday, Aug. 25

This Saturday, you can pedal and pump your way across miles of gorgeous Park City country, cruising past Mount Timpanogos and Jordanelle Reservoir to benefit the nonprofit National Ability Center. Park City’s NAC works to provide recreational opportunities—from skiing and snowboarding to archery and equestrian activities—to individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. Registration for the Summit Challenge will cost between $35 and $85 for the 18-, 52- or 105-mile route to the summit. Summit County riders with disabilities can register and ride for free.

Yeti Pass Skootch’n Dash
Saturday, Aug. 25

Put your slope legs to the test this weekend by taking part in either a ski-boot run or a 50-meter dash strapped to a snowboard. While you’re dominating with your skootching and/or dashing skills, you can win some sweet Rossignol skis or a snowboard, and half of your $5 registration will benefit the nonprofit Utah Avalanche Center.
