“The Rocky Mountain Division Championships, a four-day series of cross-country races sponsored by Alpine Banks, will be held at the Snowmass club Touring Center in Snowmass Village, March 6-9. Close to 400 competitors are expected to compete in the various events, according to Toby Morse, Director of the Snowmass Club Touring Center,” a 1986 article from The Aspen Times announced.

“‘This is a first for a four-day series of championship events,’ said Morse. ‘It is setting a standard for future RMD Championships.’ Morse said the Snowmass races are the last qualifier races before the National Championships. At the awards ceremony, the representatives for the Rocky Mountain Division and the Junior Olympic and Senior National Teams at the Nationals in Reno, Nevada will be announced.”
