7. The Heathen Challenge

United States (Colorado)

Organizer: Colorado Ski Mountaineering Cup (COSMIC)
Place: Sunlight Mountain, CO
International Event
Event type: individual
Description: As always (snow permitting) we'll put ever more of the course in backcountry next to Sunlight Mt. rather than on the ski area. Also, as this year's event is the final selection race for the US National Team, the skiing will be extra adventurous and the skin tracks and boot packs a little more interesting. For "non-elite" racers you've nothing to worry about; if you're an expert skier and can perform a kick-turn on a steep slope you'll have a great day of backcountry ski racing. The Recreation course is always a great option (and recommended) for first-timers. Watch this space for more details, as of August 27th plan on the following logistics: - Friday pm registration at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs from 5-7pm. - 8 AM START, late registration, number pick-up in Sunlight Mt. base lodge from 6:30 am. - The RECREATION course will be approximately 2,500 ft., the RACE COURSE 4,500+

Registration fee: 0 USD per racer
Prizes amount: 0 USD
