One Good Tour Deserves Another 

The 49th annual Zions Bank Boulder Mountain Tour will take place in person in Ketchum, Idaho, on its traditional day, the first Saturday in February, falling in 2022 on February 5. Due to the popularity of last year’s virtual event, “Our Boulder, Your Backyard,” participants may opt to ski on a course of their choice between February 1-6 (except for the Harriman Trail, which will be closed to virtual skiers on February 5.) 

All entrants who sign up between now and October 31 will be entered into a drawing for season Nordic ski passes courtesy of the good folks at Sun Valley Resort and the Blaine County Recreation District. 

In-person entry fee includes race bag, official 2022 BMT SWIX race hat, event program, sponsored goods, a raffle ticket, a 10-week training program for beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers, and the opportunity to win amazing prizes from event sponsors. 

The premier cross country race in the Western United States, the in-person Tour is staged on the historic Harriman Trail located in the pristine Sawtooth National Forest Area. Race distances are 34 kilometers, the Full Boulder, and 15 kilometers, the Charley Course Half Boulder. 

The field features World Cup-caliber racers to cross country enthusiasts who embrace the "Tour" aspect of the event. All ages are welcome. Racers are separated by waves, including Elite Men, Elite Women, seeded by previous race times in the BMT or comparable marathon distance races. There are seven waves in the Full Boulder. This year, the in-person race field will be capped at 600 skiers for the Full Boulder, and 200 skiers in the Half.

Annually, the BMT recognizes its fastest, oldest and youngest racers, on-course preem champions, wave winners, and Jon Engen Perpetual Awards for most significant time improvement (male/female) from one year to the next in the Full Boulder. Post-race, the BMT Block Party and Awards Bash will be from 5-7:30 p.m. at Ketchum Town Square. Food and beverage trucks, awards, music, and a good time will be on tap. Raffle prizes include skis, boots, poles, clothing, bags, and training aids from our generous sponsors and supporters. You must be present to win.

In 2022, virtual award categories will be Pacesetter, Youngest and Oldest, and Best Costume. All winners will be drawn by raffle with the exception of the costume category - which will be recognized in both the in-person and virtual events.
