Saturday, Feb. 11 is slated as "Pass the Olympic Torch Day" at Soldier Hollow, celebrating four years of legacy activities at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games venue located in Midway. Highlighting the day will be a live phone-in report from the first day of competition at the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, Italy. U.S. Ski Team Nordic Director Luke Bodensteiner will be providing highlights of the days’ results by members of the U.S. Olympic Team. Anchoring the day’s activities at Soldier Hollow will be a Wasatch Citizen Series (WCS) race with lengths and age categories for everyone. Every youth (17 and under) entered in the WCS race will receive a free U.S. Ski Team Soldier Hollow special edition T-shirt. The T-shirt proudly displays the U.S. Ski Team logo and "You’re on the Team Today." Entry fees for the race or tour are $15 for adults and $6 for juniors. All participants will receive a free lunch courtesy of Nate Wade Subaru. In addition, every participant is eligible for WCS’s drawing for many prizes. To lend its support to the U.S. effort to be "Best in the World," Soldier Hollow will donate to the U.S. Nordic Ski Team $1 for every skier visit on Feb. 11.
