Elk Mountain Grand Traverse- March 29, 2013

Elk Mountain Grand Traverse by Outdoor Research and Dynafit

The 15th Annual GORE-TEX® Grand Traverse was a success! Thank you to the racers and volunteers that helped make this happen!
The 16th Annual GORE-TEX® Elk Mountains Grand Traverse will be held on Friday March 29, 2013. Mark your calendars!

The Grand Traverse is an extraordinary 40-mile backcountry ski race between the towns of Crested Butte and Aspen, CO. Depending on weather, the start is usually at midnight from Crested Butte, often in sub-zero temperatures; the racers traverse Colorado’s spectacular Elk Mountains. NOTE: for 2012 the start will be 11:00PM at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
The course is based on the mail routes of the 1880's, connecting the two towns. In this extreme endurance event, racers will 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.

For more info, please visit Elk Mountain Traverse.
