AMERICA’S UPHILL

Start: 3/13/2021  |  End: 3/13/2021

The America’s Uphill is a longtime Aspen favorite that attracts hundreds of racers each year. The race brings together snowshoers, runners, Nordic skiers, telemark skiers, and Randonee skiers for a 2.5 mile and 3,000’+ vertical climb up Aspen Mountain. The 2021 event will be a little different than previous years due to COVID safety precautions, but should be every bit as fun and painful. This year’s uphill will follow the traditional route but, due to COVID-19 restrictions, will be limited to 75 participants starting in waves at 30 second intervals.

ELK MOUNTAIN GRAND TRAVERSE

Start: 3/28/2021  |  End: 3/28/2021

The Grand Traverse is an extraordinary 40-mile backcountry ski race between the towns of Crested Butte and Aspen, CO. It benefits Crested Butte Nordic and other non-profits.

Starting at midnight from Crested Butte, often in sub-zero temperatures, racers traverse Colorado’s spectacular Elk Mountains. In this extreme endurance event, racers climb more than 7,800 vertical feet and navigate in a self-supported backcountry race that tests them physically and mentally. To maintain safety in the backcountry, racers compete in teams of two and are required to carry mandatory gear. Held annually since 1998, it’s earned a reputation as a true test of toughness for elite local, national and international athletes.
