WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont.—Utah’s Håkon Hjelstuen and Guro Jordheim won the men’s and women’s freestyle races to close out the Utah Invitational on Friday afternoon as Denver won the overall team standings.
Denver had 650 points for the overall win. Colorado finished second with 636 points with the Utes third (599.5). Montana State was fourth (527.5) with New Mexico fifth (396). Alaska Anchorage placed sixth (333) followed by Westminster College (224), Alaska Fairbanks (223) and Colorado Mountain College (71). Colorado edged Utah for the overall Nordic title with 363 points to Utah’s 360 points.
Races were run as the snow fell during the day after half a foot of powder fell overnight. The races were originally scheduled in Utah but were moved to Montana due to local ski conditions.
The RMISA has off from collegiate competition next weekend, returning to action on Saturday, Feb. 3, at the New Mexico Invitational.
