Power Of Four Ski Mountaineering
The Power of Two / Recreation Division is designed for those athletes not quite ready to tackle the full course. This course uses the second half of the Power of Four course with the same finish line in Gondola Plaza. The Rec Division race begins at 8:00 am at Aspen Highlands Base Village. Teams of two will ascend the Highland Bowl, make their way down Congo Trail, up the backside of Aspen Mountain on Midnight mine Road and for one final descent down Aspen Mountain to the finish line. There is one full aid station at the top of Congo Trail for athletes to refill water bottles and refuel. All full course race rules and uphilling protocol apply to the Rec Division.
