IRONWOOD - After a 10-year hiatus, the snowmobile hillclimb returned to Copper Peak this past weekend.

Participants had a simple goal to make it to the top of the extremely steep Copper Peak hill, zigging and zagging around gates. The top prizes went to those who made it to the top in the shortest time.

Tyler Robinson, of Afton, Wyoming, was named King of the Hill in the Mod Class with a winning time of 42.06 seconds.

Matt Tingstad of Bessemer claimed the Stock Class King of the Hill moniker with a best time of 42.64.
