On Saturday, February 14, 2015, the Forty-Nine Degrees North Wintersports Foundation will host the 28th Hale’s Sheimo Cup Citizens Race at Forty-Nine Degrees North in Chewelah, WA.
This race celebrates the life of Thomas A. Sheimo who was the first hired employee by Hale’s Ales. Sheimo was on his way home from the Colville Elks Golf Course when a stray bullet from a domestic dispute shootout went through his open car window.
The Sheimo Cup race is for all age classes and includes three different categories; Alpine, Snowboard, and Telemark. You can challenge your friends and race side by side on a dual course slalom. One run down the red course, followed by one run down the blue course for a combined time. The top three in each age group for male and female receives a mug. Plus, your registration fee includes a long sleeve 28th Annual Sheimo Cup Special Edition t-shirt.
