Parking is available in the Snowmass Base Village garage. Free parking is also available at the Brush Creek Lot (intersection of Highway 82 and Brush Creek Road) with free buses to Snowmass.

Racer Bags

Each racer will be allowed to deposit one bag at the start/finish. In an effort to reduce waste we will not provide a bag, please bring your own. Make sure your name and bib number are clearly written on the outside of the bag.

Course Marking

The course will be marked with black & yellow striped tape and pink directional signage with the event logo.

Aid Stations

The aid stations will have water, electrolyte mix, Red Bull, Coca Cola, pretzels, potato chips, candy and other snacks to keep you fueled.
You should plan to be able to make it from aid station to station without additional support.

Rules

  • Stay on the designated trails; no short-cutting switchbacks. Those attempting to take short-cuts will be disqualified and publicly shamed.
  • Headphones are permitted, but please be respectful when entering aid stations and crossing other trails. Be aware that the trails are open to the public and, in spots, cross other trails that may include cyclist, runners, hikers, etc. Please rock-out responsibly.
  • If you choose to drop out please alert the nearest aid station personnel. We do not want to worry your emergency contact person!
  • No littering! We have trash cans and recycle bins at each aid station. Just because it's a race doesn't mean you get to forget your manners.
  • If you must relieve yourself, please use a bathroom (available at Start/Finish, Town Park & Elk Camp restaurant) or discretion...
  • All riders must carry a water bottle or hydration pack.
