IRONWOOD – 10 people competed in the first Mt. Zion ski race of the season Saturday morning.

The race consisted of two runs of Giant Slalom.

Races will be held at the hill every Saturday for the next 8-9 weeks, said director Jim Vanderspoel.

To participate, skiers must fill out a one-time form and register for each individual race.
