The 5th running of the Pebble Creek Mountain Run was a huge success!! We had 42 participants this year and raised over $700 for PXCSF!
The conditions were nearly ideal this year so it’s no surprise that a new course record was set for the ladies! Congratulations to Carolyn Weber for establishing the new high bar at 33:45 and earning dinner at The Bridge!!
Tyler Scheibenflug set the pace for the men and won with a time of 28:43. Both Tyler and Carolyn were awarded 1st place prizes courtesy of the Tasting Room.
Thanks to everyone who participated. We were able to raise over $700 this year and that will go a long way in our efforts to help maintain excellent cross country skiing in Pocatello.
Here are the full results:
The fifth running of the Pebble Creek Mountain Race will be held on June 23, 2018, at 1pm. This grueling course rises 1950 vertical feet in only 2.6 miles starting at the lodge and ending at the top Skyline chair lift. Participants will walk/run back to the bottom. Awards and raffle to follow.
Cost: $20 (after June 20: $30)
Proceeds from this race support the Pocatello Cross-Country Ski Foundation and help to maintain excellent cross country skiing at Pocatello’s Mink Creek Nordic Center where half of the grooming throughout the season is done by volunteers. The money raised goes towards gas and maintenance of the grooming equipment purchased by the Foundation.
Pebble Creek’s annual Wildflower Festival will follow from 3pm to 10pm. In addition to live music, there will be food and local brews. The Sunshine lift will be running for those wanting to ride up and hike down through the abundant flowers. The hillside just above the deck provides a perfect view of both the performers and the sunset. Proceeds from the Festival support the Pebble Creek Ski Patrol. You can purchase tickets for half price if you buy them when registering for the race.

The 2015 Pebble Creek Mountain Run was a great success! Despite the brutally hot temperatures, we had a total of 32 participants (10 more than last year) and at least 10 people who registered the day of the event! And only one DNF. In short, we had a great group of really tough runners come out this year.
The Sunshine Run (1.65 miles) was canceled due to lack of interest but the Skyline run (2.6 miles) went on as planned.
The men’s winner was Luke Nelson with a time of 27:33 and the women’s winner was Melissa Merrill with a time of 36:17. Mellissa also set the women’s course record and won a $25 gift card to the Bridge.
We managed to raise about $800 this year.
Thanks to all of the volunteers that helped out:
Roger and Patricia Schmidt

The second running of the Pebble Creek Mountain Race will be held on June 28, 2014, at 2pm.

After the race, runners can return to the Lodge via the Sunshine Lift (this is the lower of the two lifts, so Skyline runners will have to make their way back down to the Sunshine Lift).
