CASPER – The Pinedale High School alpine ski team traveled to Hogadon Basin Ski Area on Feb. 25 and 26 for the Britt Farr Memorial Race hosted by Natrona County High School.
The meet was originally scheduled for early February, but extreme cold temperatures on Casper Mountain led organizers to reschedule the event one week before the State Meet.
