The 38th Annual Pole Pedal Paddle will be held on March 30, 2013.
Registration opens November 1st. The Pole Pedal Paddle is a tradition in Jackson Hole, held this year on the 2nd to last Saturday of skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The four-event race, where contestants compete either individually or in teams, consists of an alpine ski leg, a cross-country ski leg, a bicycle leg, and a boating leg. The Pole Pedal Paddle is a fundraising event for the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable Alpine, Freeride, Nordic and Snowboard programs to Jackson youth.
Some believe it was the prototype for the triathlon, a race combining four sports into a single event, but back in 1975 Pole Pedal Paddle founder Harry Baxter considered PPP to be just a playful end to a winter at the Jackson Hole Ski Resort.
