Kiitella’s Power of Four Skimo medals go bright red this year! Same design — modeled after the classic ski pole basket, same heft with thick steel plate, just with a glossy red powdercoat finish. The Audi Power of Four Race Series is a premier endurance race consisting of 12K feet of vertical gain over 25 miles traversing the four Aspen Snowmass mountains. Race day is this Saturday, February 25 and registration is still open!
