HISTORY... When Olympian Ryan Hall began his journey as a runner, it all started here.  Ryan grew up only 5 minutes away from Snow Summit and incorporated weekly 1 mile timed runs up "The Wall" ski run.  The current high school cross country team in Big Bear still utilizes this course every summer for their training, hoping to reach the heights that Ryan Hall established.  three State Champions later... it seems to be working.

NEW - this year Ryan will be donating a number of his books to be handed out to select runners.  More info to come
